Introducing T°Cool® Evaporative Cooling Technology - available for crumb rubber or sand. High schools, colleges, and municipalities are installing the innovative solution to combat the heat on synthetic turf fields. Independent testing confirms that T°Cool® technology reduces the surface temperature by 30 to 50 degrees, making fields cooler, safer, and more playable. T°Cool® is an eco-friendly solution that cools the synthetic turf surfaces by coating the black crumb rubber infill or sand. T°Cool® captures water from rainfall, dew, or irrigation and stores it for later use. As the sun's radiation heats up the turf, T°Cool® releases moisture, making it the only proven synthetic turf cooling infill that cools the entire synthetic turf system for sustained periods of time. Additionally, the T°Cool® coating also reduces surface friction and the smell of traditional crumb rubber. T°Cool® Sports Sand also includes the benefit of the antimicrobial additive, BacShield. This antimicrobial protection fights harmful microorganisms including bacteria, protozoans, viruses, and fungi such as mold and mildew.
