Southwest Greens East Bay, together with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the implementation of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product adds to the success of HydroChill™ Home, an advanced cooling system started in October 2013. Made to protect against the heat on artificial lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction product of its kind and one of the only solutions in the industry to lead to substantial and sustained temperature differences.

Although results will depend on geographic location and local conditions such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has been able to have 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard artificial turf surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic turf and, when charged by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling result of HydroChill Home after rainfall 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.
