Southwest Greens Pittsburgh, together 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 resist the heat on artificial turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction technology of its kind and one of the only solutions in the business to result in considerable 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 been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic turf surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic turf and, when charged by water, pulls heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rain or watering can keep working for 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.
