Does synthetic turf get hot? The answer is yes. Synthetic turf can get a lot hotter than natural grass. It contains no moisture, so this often means your artificial lawn absorbs heat and has no way of cooling down. Southwest Greens has created a way to cool your turf down with its innovative HydroChill technology.
HydroChill is designed to operate much like the human body when it sweats – it uses moisture to cool the entire turf system through evaporative cooling technology. HydroChill is a patented technology that has been developed through years of turf system research. Vetted with lab testing and reallife application, HydroChill utilizes moisture to provide a cooling effect. HydroChill naturally holds moisture using rainfall, dew, and irrigation to keep your lawn cool for days. It’s cost effective, and works with nature to give you a satisfactory feeling.
The system is a completely safe, antimicrobial, odorless substance that mixes easily into water and is sprayed and agitated into the infill, over the course of a few hours to a few days depending on the size of the lawn. During the curing process, be sure to take care when walking on your lawn – the surface will be slippery! Don’t worry, though – it won’t be slippery after three to six hours of curing, when future hydration takes place.
It almost works like magic: when hydrated HydroChill will hold moisture and slowly release causing an even cooled surface; the hotter it is, the colder it gets. It has created temperature differences as much as 55 degrees! This cost-effective, ecologically friendly, and long lasting product will perform effectively and won’t wash away like cork or husk.
While actual results will vary depending on specific site conditions and climatic factors, HydroChill will produce a cooling effect anywhere the sun is out as long as it is properly hydrated.
Each summer seems to be getting hotter, with 14 of the 15 hottest summers on record occurring since 2000. More than 80 million people experience 100 degree temperatures! Does synthetic turf get hot? Yes, but there’s no reason your artificial turf can’t give you the same, cool, natural experience your natural grass would. Synthetic lawns may get hot, but with HydroChill technology, your whole family (even your pets) can enjoy your new lawn in fantastic relaxation.
