Patented Cooling Technology

T°Cool® is engineered to work through the same thermoregulation process our bodies use to keep cool, called evaporative cooling. This process has a cooling effect via the evaporation of moisture. T°Cool® simply requires hydration, which can come from irrigation, rainfall, dew, or a simple garden hose. As solar radiation heats the turf, T°Cool® releases its moisture. As the moisture evaporates, it removes the heat with it - cooling the artificial turf by up to 50°F.

Combined with Bac-Shield® an EPA registered antimicrobial agent, T°Cool® Landscape Sand not only cools, it protects!


Pre-Treated Crumb Rubber

T°CoolPT® Pre-Treated Crumb Rubber combines the power of our patented T°Cool® technology with the turf field industries long-standing go-to for performance-based infill. Crumb rubber still remains the top choice for many turf field professionals for a host of sports that demand high performance and the highest safety standards. T°CoolPT® is produced under the strictest standards and safety guidelines of any crumb rubber manufacturer in the US.

TCool Turf Background

Antimicrobial Protection

Bac-Shield Chitosan-Based Antimicrobial is EPA-Registered for the control of odor-causing microbes. Bac-Shield makes an article or surfaces an unsuitable environment for the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, or bacteria. Odors are a by-product of bacterial growth and wastes.  By inhibiting the growth of odor-causing microbes, Bac-Shield reduces the resulting wastes and odors they cause.

TCool Liquid Application

Liquid Applications

In addition to our manufactured pre-treated infills, T°Cool® technology is also available as a post-installation application. This process is ideal for larger projects, such as sports fields that have already been installed but would now like the cooling power of T°Cool® without waiting several years before it is time to replace their existing fields. Although the liquid application process requires very specialized equipment and operational expertise, T°Cool® is a very cost-effective way to cool down those increasingly hot turf fields. Depending on the size of the area and the current condition of the field, we can typically complete the installation process in 3-5 days which immediately opens up many valuable hours of otherwise unusable field time due to excessive heat concerns.
