HydroChill™ can reduce synthetic turf temperatures by up to 28 deg C!
Why Install HydroChill™ with your artificial grass?
In the past, the surface temperature of synthetic lawns was always a concern. While fake grass is great for combating harsh, dry, hot climates, high temperatures can cause the surface of the grass to require frequent rinses with water to stay cool. Now, however, All Seasons Synthetic Turf has a solution in HydroChill™, which allows you to enjoy your synthetic lawn any time of the day or year. HydroChill™ can reduce the surface temperature of residential synthetic grass, synthetic putting greens and sports surfaces by as much as 28 degrees, making artificial lawn viable in even the harsh Australian climate. HydroChill™ Infill can keep your family and pets comfortable outdoors even on those very hot days.
Evaporative Cooling Technology
Perspiration 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 turf surface is heated by solar radiation, moisture stored in the HydroChill turf is released. Evaporating moisture removes heat, leaving a cooler more comfortable surface for the users.
When Hydrochill Is Most Effective
Ambient temperature outside doesn’t necessarily dictate surface temperature. The solar radiation time period, sun’s angle, cloud cover, 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 Australia, the sun is positioned overhead causing surfaces to absorb more
energy resulting in hotter temperatures. The rotation of the Earth is also responsible for hourly variations in sunlight thus making HydroChill most effective during the hotter part of a clear day when most needed.
- HydroChill utilizes moisture to provide a cooling effect. Rainfall, dew and irrigation can help keep your lawn cool for days, depending on local conditions
- HydroChill can be incorporated into all of APT’s infilled lawn systems
- HydroChill will not affect the durability or warranty of APT’s products
- HydroChill is UV-resistant and should be re-treated every two years for maximum effectiveness
HydroChill™ patented technology has been developed through years of turf system research. It has been vetted with laboratory testing and, more importantly, outdoor lawn testing.
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 lawn has been shown to create a substantial temperature differential in real-world applications. Based on actual lab and outdoor lawn thermocouple testing, HydroChill has achieved 16°-28° Celsius lower surface temperatures compared to a standard synthetic turf system.
Further testing was performed by a FLIR-Certified Thermographer using the most advanced camera imagery and technology. The FLIR camera was calibrated for emmisivities of various materials used in the turf system so additional accurate temperature measurements could be obtained.
Easy application for those with existing artificial grass
HydroChill is an infill coated sand is very easy to apply to either newly installed synthetic grass or existing fake lawn, the same procedure as putting in your sand infill. Once hydrated it can last for days, slowly releasing moisture and cooling surface temperatures by up to 28 dec C, easy, just hose down the grass on a Friday night and your synthetic turf will be at the perfect ambient temperature for the weekend and so on.
HydroChill absorbs moisture so rainfall, dew or simple watering immediately resets the process and puts you in control. HydroChill means you can now have artificial grass in your back yard or sports arena, where before you were concerned about the heat. Your children and pets can now enjoy the benefits of an All Seasons Synthetic turf without the worry of the artificial grass being too hot. A simple re-hydration is all you need to keep your fake lawn cool, synthetic turf is a smart sustainable solution that is now better than ever. HydroChill is a non-toxic and does not have negative environmental effects.
See for yourself
If you would like to see the amazing results from our synthetic turf that has been treated with Hydrochill, then you can either visit our main showroom and stand barefoot on our outside display alternatively All Seasons Synthetic Turf can come to your house to quote for synthetic turf, they have a HydroChill treated sample that can be left in the sun whilst measuring for artificial grass. They will then use the infrared laser gun to read the temperature of the synthetic turf treated with HydroChill and the ones that are not, so you can feel for yourself the revolutionary technology of Hydrochill.
