What Is Dtex in Artificial Grass?

Dtex is an abbreviation of decitex which is one-tenth of a tex. Tex is a unit to measure the durability of a textile material by expressing its linear mass density. It is linear mass in grams per 1000 meters of fiber. In the field of artificial grass, this measurement is generally counted in tenths.

So, a decitex or Dtex in artificial grass is the amount of weight in grams for every 10,000 meters of grass filament. Dtex is the most commonly used unit of measurement in Europe and Canada.

Why Dtex Matters While Choosing Artificial Grass

Dtex is often overlooked when buying artificial grass even though its value matters a lot in determining the quality and the purpose of the turf. Dtex can be a deciding factor when buying synthetic turf depending on where you plan to install it.

A high Dtex grass indicates a coarser grass yarn with stiff and thick filaments. When all other parameters are kept constant, a higher Dtex means a higher stitch rate. So, high Dtex grass has thick filaments tightly packed, while low Dtex grass has thin fibers in the yarn.

If you want to install artificial grass on your front lawn where there isn’t much foot traffic, buying high Dtex grass will only cost you more money. Lower Dtex grass will also get the job done well. On the other hand, if you want to install the turf on a sports pitch, high Dtex grass is where it’s at.
