Southwest Greens of Houston , alongside parent company Shaw Industries, announces the launch of a patented HydroChill™ pre-coated filling. The new pre-coated product builds upon the success of HydroChill™ Home, an ingenious cooling system launched in October 2013. Designed to protect against the heat on synthetic lawn and landscape surfaces, HydroChill is the first heat reduction innovation of its kind and one of the lone 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 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 artificial turf and, when charged by water, eliminates 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 dramatic when surface temperatures are hottest. HydroChill is most effective 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.
