[APD] Turface is not black

I called the turface company according to them they do not make a turface
black or any black product. They only make it in "grey" is this what your
all calling black?

Yes, you are correct. Everybody on the net calls Turface "black". It is actually called Turface MVP "dark".
The company makes no mention of the dark colored Turface MVP anywhere on the site (AFAIK).


There is a pic on the front page of Turface MVP in plain tan color.
Here is another page with Turface info (same site):


An interesting bit of info from the site:
"The raw material for TURFACE® and PROFILE™ is found in only one deposit owned by PROFILE Products LLC. PROFILE controls the entire mining, manufacturing and quality control process. PROFILE Products manufactures TURFACE and PROFILE exclusively for sports fields and golf course applications for building root zones that will stand up to intense athletic use."

Hopefully everybody will get on the same page and call it "Turface MVP dark" from now on.

Now to slay the other dragon. "Lignite" is actually Leonardite:


"Lignite, also known as leonardite, mined lignin, brown coal, and slack, is an important constituent to the oil well, drilling industry. Lignite, or leonardite as it will be referred as hereafter, is technically known as a low rank coal between peat and sub-bituminous. Leonardite was named for Dr. A.G. Leonard, North Dakota's first state geologist, who was a pioneer in the study of lignite deposits. Leonardite is applied to products having a high content of humic acid."

Diamond Black by General Hydro is Leonardite...not lignite.


"Diamond Black is a unique organic form of Leonardite containing an exceptionally high percentage of beneficial plant active organic humic and fulvic acids."
