YOU MAKE IT AMAZING.
Palau Hybrid’s grass combines the best of natural grass and
artificial turf, using an innovating system to offer a unique a
resilient paying surface.
This is the only hybrid system that includes an elastic layer
so the ground does not compact.
Stronger and more resistant
The field is always even and resilient, but the grass grows
vigorously. Roots are protected by the artificial turf basement
and the elastic layer avoids the compacting of the ground.
THE GRASS DOES NOT PULL OUT AND RESISTS
MUCH MORE PLAYING TIME
More comfortable and safer
It reduces the players’ workload during practice sessions and
games, protecting them from the risk of injury.
IT REDUCES FATIGUE
Requires less maintenance
The system incorporates an insulating layer right below the
artificial turf, which allows the roots to breath and prevents
the field from plagues.
PROTECTION AGAINST INSECTS AND FUNGUS
“Palau Hybrid solved all our problems. Before, playing at our field
two months into the season was a nightmare. Now, we enjoy natural
grass for many hours, even under the rain”.
Technical Director of soccer club C.F. Avià
IS ON YOUR SIDE!
ADVANTAGES FOR PLAYERS AND COACHES:
More hours of playing time.
By playing on a flat field, the body stays balanced.
The field is safer and minimizes the risk of injury by reducing the players’
The game is more precise as the ball bounces correctly on a flat and firm
ADVANTAGES FOR MAINTENANCE PURPOSES:
Airing is not needed.
Eliminates the attack of plagues from insects that generally grow on the ground.
Because of having an aired field and less organic matter, it reduces the
Does not need to be repaired and the grass does not need to be changed.
REASONS FOR CHOOSING
It can be changed from natural grass to artificial turf
and vice versa
Only natural grass
It can be used 25 hours per week (more than 3 times
than natural grass)
Fewer hours of playing time
Better drainage – better playing conditions under rain
Problems to play under bad weather conditions:
Surface never turns into mud because of excessive use
Grass is lost because of excessive use
Roots do not pool out during a game
Pools out by the roots
It could be lined permanently (saves on paint)
It only allows paint for lining the field
More uniformed elasticity (due to the cavity wall)
Continuous compressing, irregular areas
No airing is required
It must be aired often
The hydroponic layer always delivers oxygen
There is no hydroponic layer
The hydroponic layer prevents fungicidal diseases
There is no hydroponic layer
The insulating weave prevents insects and animals
from going to the root zone
There is no insulating weave
Standardized temperature for cold and hot weather
It easily gains and loses temperature
Less watering is needed due to the standardization of
High levels of watering are needed
We have already started to export this system internationally. Currently we are present
in Asia, Russia, America and the Scandinavian countries. Palau Hybrid has also been
evaluated by Nordic ISA Sport, credited by FIFA, recording excellent results. The system is
approved to be used in official competitions.
“It is the best solution for Nordic countries. Now, we can play in natural grass
during our tough winter season. IIn Sweden, it is becoming more and more
popular. Coaches and players love it”.

HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?
Artificial turf fibers + backing
Filled with sand + specific mix
Selective insulating weave
Natural grass roots
Sand subsoil + specific mix
Natural grass: It is seeded from 1 to 4 inches above the artificial turf. Roots run through
the backing, providing a very strong anchorage.
Artificial turf: Protects the natural grass fibers, absorbing the load and protecting soil to
come out protecting soil to come out. It reduces the maintenance work.
Selective insulating weave + elastic layer: The elastic layer protects the natural grass
roots, prevents players’ injuries and creates a cavity wall. The insulating weave prevents
the sand inside the elastic layer from coming out, avoids the reproduction of insects and
animals and standardizes the temperature.
Sand subsoil: Roots grow strongly until reaching a 10-inch size. This way they absorb
more water and nutrients, improving their resistance and their recovery capability
IT ASSURES MANY MORE HOURS OF PLAYING TIME AND LESS
MAINTENANCE THAN NATURAL GRASS.
We can also implement natural grass and artificial turf systems.
