Greenhouse covers provide growers with optimum conditions for the growth of plants. This includes the conditions needed to grow crops (temperature, light, humidity, water and air movement) and conditions to better manage pests and diseases.
The correct choice of the greenhouse cover type varies according to the region where you plan to set up the greenhouse.
Greenhouse covers can be divided into 2 groups.
- Plastic coating
- Plastic films
Films are the most common and least costly type of coating material.
The types of movies available are:
Polyethylene (polyethylene), EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) and PVC (poly vinyl chloride).
Additives to plastic determine:
- Heat Loss Reduction Capacity
- Droplet Formation Reduction Capacity
- Transmission of Light at Certain Wavelengths
- Capacity to Reduce Film Adhesive Dust.
The additives in the product we use are as follows;
UV ADDITIVE: It prevents harmful rays from the sun from entering the greenhouse. It is also an additive that determines the life of the plastic. As the UV rate increases, the life of the plastic increases.
IR ADDITIVE: It preserves the hot air entering the greenhouse during the day and keeps the hot air inside the greenhouse at night. It minimizes the temperature difference between night and day. It reduces the plant's stress, especially in winter. It saves fuel.
EVA ADDITIVE It is an additive that increases the strength of plastic. It increases the resistance of the plastic against wind and hail.
DIFFUSION ADDITIVE:The sunlight coming to the greenhouse cover allows it to enter by breaking down when entering the greenhouse. This ensures that the plants receive sun evenly.
AO ADDITIVE: Burning and melting may occur in contact of plastic with greenhouse iron. This additive reduces the damage of iron to plastic.
HUNTING ADDITIVE: When insects enter the greenhouse, it causes vision loss.
