Southwest Greens of Metro New York, together with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product increases the success of HydroChill™ Home, an advanced cooling system started in October 2013. Designed to combat the heat on artificial turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the lone solutions in the business to lead to substantial and sustained temperature differences.
Although results will result based on geographic location and local factors such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, HydroChill Home has been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic lawn surface when checked by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic turf and, when sprayed with water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rainy weather or watering can keep working for days depending on local conditions and is most significant when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most successful 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 formula is a natural succession of our cooling technology innovation. It illustrates our devotion to continue to advance our products to meet and satisfy customer needs. Modern HydroChill projects are implemented at the Waldorf-Astoria and a Property Brothers HGTV episode aired in 2014.
