It’s no secret that synthetic turf can become hot, especially during the summer months. With HydroChill you now have the ability to control surface temperatures by 30-50 degrees once hydrated. A simple re-hydration is all you need to keep your lawn cool; artificial grass is a smart solution that is now better than ever.
Extensive testing in both laboratory and real-world outdoor settings have produced a revolutionary product.
Whether it’s the repetitive grind of practice or the last drive to win the game, athletes feel the heat in more ways than one. It’s no secret that synthetic turf fields can be hot. That kind of weather affects athletes, too. Now, with the development of the HydroChill cooling system, athletes can focus on the task, not the temperature.
So, how does HYDROCHILL™ work?
It cools your field like nature cools your body. Sweating is a natural means of thermoregulation called evaporative cooling. Evaporation of moisture from the skin’s surface has a cooling effect. Similarly, HydroChill™ has been shown to cool synthetic turf surfaces by working on the same principle. As the artificial grass surface gets 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.
Ambient temperature outside doesn’t necessarily dictate surface temperature. The solar radiation period, sun’s angle, cloud cover, the 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 position of the sun causes surfaces to absorb more energy resulting in warmer temperatures. The rotation of the Earth is also responsible for hourly variations in sunlight thus making HydroChill™ most efficient during the hotter part of a bright day when most needed.
HydroChill™ utilizes moisture to provide a cooling effect. Rainfall, dew or irrigation can help keep the field cooler for days, depending on local conditions. HydroChill™ is UV-resistant.
A standard lawn with a wet surface will cause some cooling, but temperatures can quickly rise and may exceed uncomfortable levels of heat. A HydroChill Artifical Turf grass has shown to create a substantial temperature differential in real-world applications.
Testing methods include thermocouple probes, IR thermometers, and FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) cameras on outdoor surfaces, as well as custom designed indoor solar simulator. And, it is Antibacterial, so it’s ideal to deter odor from Pet Urine.
