T-Cool Infill - Keeps Turf 50 Degrees Cooler
Keeping synthetic turf systems cool and comfortable during warm summer months is the number one industry question. Introducing ToCool Evaporative Cooling Technology that keeps the turf temperature down up to 50 degrees F.
Evaporative cooling is something that we have all know and experienced. Wearing a damp tee shirt on a warm but windy day gives us a chill. The phenomenon that causes this is the latent heat of vaporization.
T-Cool synthetic turf solution works on the evaporative cooling principle. It helps to store moisture within the synthetic turf systems, and when solar energy heats the turf, the evaporation process takes heat energy to break intermolecular bonds between water particles, instead of changing the kinetic energy in thermoplastic turf blades.
Most common infill materials trap solar rays and heat the surface to 150-180 degrees. The T-Cool eco-friendly, healthy and cost-effective infill solution cools down synthetic turf by an applied principle of evaporative cooling. Testing has shown that the T-Cool systems reduce the surface by 30 to 50 F.
T-Cool also adds the benefit of the antimicrobial addictive, BacShield. The antimicrobial protection is not just about the cleanliness of the surface. The hundreds of volatile compounds of bacterial cultures produce a lot of smells, and mostly not ones we like. The BacShield fights harmful microorganisms including bacteria, protozoans, viruses, and fungi such as mold and mildew. When microbes come into contact with the turf surface, the antimicrobial agents penetrate its cell walls and disrupt key cell functions to limit microbial growth and reproduction.
