Southwest Greens International, along 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 advanced cooling system launched in October 2013. Designed to combat 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 industry to result in substantial and sustained temperature differences.

Although results will vary due to geographic location and local conditions such as humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has achieved 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic lawn surface when measured by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a synthetic lawn and, when charged by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling effect of HydroChill Home after rainfall or watering can last days depending on local conditions and is most significant 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.
