The usage of plastics in the agriculture industry is growing every day. PlasticKar is one of the leading manufacturers of agriculture films in Iran, which has been producing and supplying a wide range of Agriculture Films and Bags for many years.
These films are produced in various width and thickness using different polymeric compounds based on their application.
PlasticKar’ s agricultural films include:
- Irrigation Roll
- Greenhouse Film
- Greenhouse Thermal Sheet
- Low-Tunnel Film
- Mulch Film
- Soil Disinfection Film
- Vineyard Cover
- Banana Bunch Cove
By using a variety of additives, it possible to create specific features in agricultural films.
Some of these additives improve the product durability and life-time, while some others enhance the diffusion, thermal and mechanical properties.
Below are some of the additives and their effects:
|Anti-Dust||Facilitate the removal of dust, soil and dirt stuck on the outer film surface with rain or a simple wash.
Preventing the reduction of light transmitted through the greenhouse cover.
|Reduce surface tension of condensing water vapor, so that condensation trickles down the plastic wall of the greenhouse film, preventing:
Damage and disease caused by water dripping blooms and leaves.
|This additive helps the absorption of infrared radiation and reduces the temperature loss at night.
Some features of this additive include:
Reduces internal temperature during the day by blocking the near infrared rays (NIR) entering the greenhouse, and prevents
temperature loss during the night by creating a barrier to the far infrared radiation (FIR) leaving the greenhouse.
|EVA Copolymer||By adding EVA copolymer, the greenhouse film will benefit from the following advantages:
greenhouse structure (frame).
|Breaks sun radiation into a multitude of rays, optimizing the even spread of light within the greenhouses, therefore:
This material is the most widely used additive in agriculture films.
UV stabilizers are added to protect different polymers against UV radiation. Therefore, this additive increases the lifetime of the film:
Based on the atmospheric conditions, geographical environment, required lifetime and the greenhouse film thickness, specific type and amount of UV additive will be used.
|Disease Control Filter||This additive blocks UV sun rays (up to 380 nm) causing:
It should be noted that disease control films should not be used in greenhouses requiring insect pollination.
