Southwest Greens of Western Canada, along with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product builds upon the success of HydroChill™ Home, an innovative cooling system released in October 2013. Designed to resist the heat on synthetic lawn 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 significant and sustained temperature differences.

Although results will vary due to geographic location and local factors such as cloud cover, humidity and wind fluctuations, HydroChill Home has achieved 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 artificial turf and, when covered by water, pulls heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling effect 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 resulting in temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
