Not so long ago glass was used in the hothouse economy. However, this material significantly reduced the profitability of production, since construction, and repair of glass greenhouses was very expensive. Therefore, for already two decades, instead of the usual glass, greenhouses are mounted with a more affordable and simple polyethylene film, which is available in a wide range. Due to its availability and characteristics, the film has become so popular in private farms and agricultural macro sectors.
Agrarians use the film most widely. First, it serves as a cover material in greenhouses. Use it when planting seedlings in the open ground, as well as to cover the soil for the purpose of mulching. Also with the help of the film, it is possible to steam the soil. In addition, polyethylene film is used for sheltering silage pits and for the arrangement of feed storage facilities.
The production of the greenhouse film is made of high pressure polyethylene. For this, extrusion technology is used. Special substances can be added to the polyethylene. The first are light stabilizers. They are designed to reduce the negative impact of sunlight, due to which the material significantly reduces the strength. And the second - antifogs, which are additives, thanks to which the film does not condense moisture, and the greenhouse does not mist over.
The film for greenhouses has such characteristics as:
excellent light transmission capacity;
excellent thermal insulation qualities;
resistance to solar UV radiation;
creation of the greenhouse effect;
ability to keep the top layers of soil in wet condition;
resistance to weather changes;
wide operating temperature range: -50 to +60;
It is the above qualities that determine the fact that most households and summer residents prefer to buy a film for the greenhouse, instead of alternative materials.
