Various factors contribute to the melting and eventual destruction of artificial grass, including:
Exposure to direct sunlight
Direct sunlight exposure is one of the major causes of artificial grass melting. The intense heat from the sun, coupled with the fact that polyethylene material is more susceptible to heat, results in the grass’s gradual softening. This effect is visible in faded turf, prickly turf, or turf hot to touch and walk on. The turf materials do not have the mechanism to release heat energy either.
Sunlight that is reflected from shiny objects
Artificial grass materials directly under the reflection from windows, doors, and mirrors are prone to melting. Light and heat, when reflected, are magnified. When they come in contact with the grass, the result is immediate damage to the grass material.

Low e-glass on windows eliminates the need for special protective films for ordinary windows. This helps reflect the heat from sun rays while allowing the light to enter the room. People particularly concerned with high utility bills utilize these windows to keep their room at cool or optimal temperature. Unfortunately, low e-glasses are one of the reasons for the cause of artificial grass melts since they are reflective to some extent. In essence, while low e-glass may work for certain areas of your house, it won’t work everywhere, especially when there is turf beneath the window.
