Southwest Greens Ontario, along with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the introduction of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated infill. The new pre-coated product builds upon the success of HydroChill™ Home, an ingenious cooling system started in October 2013. Designed to combat the heat on artificial lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the only solutions on the market to result in substantial and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will depend on geographic location and local factors such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, 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 synthetic turf and, when sprayed with water, pulls heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling effect of HydroChill Home after rain or watering can last days depending on local conditions and is most significant when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most impactful 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 mixture is a natural advancement of our cooling technology innovation. It illustrates our dedication to continue to progress our products to meet and exceed customer needs. Modern HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV section aired in 2014.
