HIGH TRANSPARENCY DISPLAYING THE BEST CROPS.
SINCE SEVERAL DECADES IS THE REFERENCE PRODUCT FOR THERMIC CLEAR COVERING SHEETS OF LARGE TUNNELS AND GREENHOUSES. IT IS MANUFACTURED FROM EVA COPOLYMERS (ETHYLENE-VINYL ACETATE) AND CAREFULLY SELECTED ADDITIVES, THROUGH A WELL PROVEN AND CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVED PRODUCTION PROCESS.
The main advantages
- Unrivalled light transparency, particularly in the PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation, which is effective for the
photosynthesis, i.e. 400-700 nm) necessary for the plants growth.
- Excellent thermal effect that limits the drop in temperature during the night or in poor sunlight conditions.
- Outstanding mechanical properties of elasticity, tear resistance, tensile strength and resistance to perforation, even at low temperatures.
- Preservation of excellent transparency and mechanical properties during the film life span.
PATILUX CLEAR therefore finds its ideal application for crops that need intense natural light as a key factor, even in critical seasonal periods of lower solar radiation, allowing early harvesting and high quality of both flowers and horticultural products.
PATILUX CLEAR films are supplied with anti-drip additives (AG) as standard; the additive migrating from the inside of the film reduces the surface tension of condensed water vapour, thus avoiding fogging and droplets. The effectiveness and the lasting of this action are influenced by the film slope, by the environment humidity and by the temperature, so the expected performance can be limited in relation to the greenhouse construction, or to the way of running it, and by the climatic conditions.
Upon customer’s request, P.A.T.I. provides a cutting service of the rolls at specified lengths.
PATILUX TUV When a good transparency is required even in the UV band, it is available the TUV grade, limited to the E class. PATILUX E TUV is successfully used to favour an environment suitable for the bumblebees and their effective activity, while allowing an optimum development of colour and fragrance of fruits and vegetables.
P.A.T.I.’s products, although they help growing conditions, cannot be deemed responsible for the crop results, that are strongly influenced by climatic, pedologic, phytopatologic and environmental conditions in general, as well as by the cultivation practices.
