Abstract

Artificial grass is mainly composed of organic polymers with a consequent potential fire hazard. However, the behavior of artificial grass in case of fire has been poorly studied and is thus misunderstood. The purpose of this study is thus to have a better understanding of the contribution of the different components of the artificial turf in the fire performances. In this work, the influence of the nature of the infill is more specifically investigated.
