Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington, along with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product builds upon the success of HydroChill™ Home, an innovative cooling system started in October 2013. Created to combat the heat on synthetic turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction technology of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the industry to result in significant and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will depend on geographic location and local weather such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has accomplished 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a basic synthetic turf surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial turf and, when covered by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling result of HydroChill Home after rainfall or watering can persist for days depending on local conditions and is most dramatic when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most successful when the sun is closest to the earth’s surface leading to temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
The new HydroChill formula is a natural succession of our cooling technology innovation. It shows our commitment to continue to advance our products to meet and exceed customer needs. Recent HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV section aired in 2014.
