Southwest Greens of Southern California, alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product adds to the success of HydroChill™ Home, an advanced cooling system launched in October 2013. Created to combat the heat on synthetic lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction product of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the business to produce substantial and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will depend on geographic location and local weather such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, HydroChill Home has achieved 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a regular synthetic lawn 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 effect of HydroChill Home after rainfall 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 resulting in temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
The new HydroChill formula is a natural advancement of our cooling technology innovation. It illustrates our commitment to continue to progress our products to meet and exceed customer needs. Recent HydroChill projects include use at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV section aired in 2014.
