Southwest Greens of Tucson, alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the introduction of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product adds to the success of HydroChill™ Home, an innovative cooling system launched in October 2013. Created to resist the heat on synthetic turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the sole solutions on the market to result in significant and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will vary due to geographic location and local weather such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a basic artificial turf surface when evaluated by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial lawn and, when covered by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling result of HydroChill Home after rain or watering can last days depending on local conditions and is most effective when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most effective when the sun is closest to the earth’s surface producing temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
The new HydroChill mixture is a natural succession of our cooling technology innovation. It illustrates our devotion to continue to forward our products to meet and satisfy customer needs. Recent HydroChill projects have been implemented both at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV segment aired in 2014.
