Southwest Greens of Augusta, together with parent company Shaw Industries, announces the introduction 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. Created to protect against the heat on synthetic turf and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the lone 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 humidity, wind fluctuations and cloud cover, HydroChill Home has achieved 30°F to 50°F lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic turf surface when checked by an infrared thermometer. The technology is applied to a artificial turf and, when covered by water, removes heat from the turf system leaving a cooler, more comfortable surface. The cooling impact of HydroChill Home after rainfall or watering can persist 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 leading to temperature differences of 50 degrees in real world, third party validated outdoor tests.
