SMART. EASY. COOL.

HYDROCHILL®

We’re proud to deliver and install turf that saves families and businesses time and money—allowing you to focus on the things that matter most. With our advanced HydroChill® cooling technology, we’ve taken on summer-time heat in a smart and easy way. A simple addition to the turf’s infill provides an average cooling range of 30-50 degrees and works naturally when hydrated by irrigation, rainfall, and dew.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

EVAPORATIVE COOLING TECHNOLOGY

Perspiration is a natural means of thermoregulation called evaporative cooling. Evaporation of moisture from the skin’s surface has a cooling effect. Similarly, HydroChillTM has been shown to cool synthetic turf surfaces by working on the same principle. As the turf surface is heated by solar radiation, moisture stored in the HydroChill turf is released. Evaporating moisture removes heat, leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface for the players.

  • HydroChill utilizes moisture to provide a cooling effect. Rainfall, dew, and irrigation can help keep your lawn cool for days, depending on local conditions
  • HydroChill can be incorporated into most Southwest Greens’ infilled lawn systems
  • HydroChill will not affect the durability or warranty of Southwest Greens’ products
  • HydroChill is UV-resistant and should be re-treated every two years for maximum effectiveness

WHEN IS IT MOST EFFECTIVE?

Ambient temperature outside doesn’t necessarily dictate surface temperature. The solar radiation time period, the sun’s angle, cloud cover, wind, and other elements all contribute to the temperature of the surface.

HydroChill provides maximum benefit when the sun is nearest the Earth, as shown in the solar radiation calendar. During the summer months in the U.S., the sun is positioned overhead causing surfaces to absorb more energy resulting in hotter temperatures. The rotation of the Earth is also responsible for hourly variations in sunlight, thus making HydroChill most effective during the hotter part of a clear day when most needed.
