THE NATURAL NEXT STEP FOR ARTIFICIAL TURF FIELDS
BrockFILL™ is a highly engineered wood particle infill specifically designed to improve traction and reduce artificial turf heat. It’s made from a species of southern pine grown, harvested, and replanted in continuous cycles. Through an 11-step conditioning process, we created a durable, affordable, and renewable organic infill produced here in the USA.
What’s the secret?
Some really cool and creative engineering
Finding a material that would solve the problems with crumb rubber and the durability, cost, and availability of other organic infills was no small task. Once identified, we then had to create a process to make tiny wood particles smooth, rounded, and the right size for drainage and the natural foot traction required.
DURABLE, COOL, AFFORDABLE
Starting in 2015, the Brock team worked with a specialized group of universities, sports testing labs, Ph.D. scientists, engineers, horticulturists, and several sports science experts to develop a solution to crumb rubber problems and other infills that could not hold up to the rigors of athletics. True to Brock’s form, we left no research question unanswered.
TESTED FOR EVERYTHING
Keeping infill in the turf is key, so the lower the splash the better. BrockFILL achieves the lowest splash when dry compared to other infills and is even better when damp.
BrockFILL is a significantly cooler infill than crumb rubber and does not require watering. Each BrockFILL particle is naturally hydrophilic, so they absorb natural rainwater and condensation into their core, not just on the surface. Moisture is then released slowly for extended cooling. Plus BrockFILL gains weight when wet, so it doesn’t float or migrate like a cork.
Like all Brock products, BrockFILL has higher permeability than the turf itself. When tested in turf, the system drains over 50” per hour. Even after 8 years of simulated use with zero maintenance, the field still meets the requirements of the International drainage standard. (But you should still maintain your field!)

a sustainable crop
HARVESTED LIKE CORN
AN ABUNDANT, RENEWABLE U.S. RESOURCE
- It’s critically important for the artificial turf industry to solve its end-of-life problem because throwing the system in a landfill or allowing crumb rubber microplastic to pollute our waterways is NOT OK. BrockFill is a 100% organic infill with no coatings or additives. When we talk about closed-loop, it’s’ the ideal infill for the environment.
When should I use brockfill?
A. When heat is an issue on the field.
B. In environmentally sensitive areas
C. In communities where crumb rubber infill is a concern
D. With teams where athlete traction and speed is important
