Traditional AC systems are based on additives that are incorporated in the mass of the film and function by migrating to its surface. As time passes these additives are depleted leaving the film without any anti-condensate function that could prevent the formation of droplets. It is known that after a new AC film is installed, crop quality, earliness and yield are better in the 1st and 2nd year. This is because the gradual absence of AC after the second year causes the accumulation of droplets on the film and reduces light transmission.
The SunMaster film line will now use revolutionary anti-condensate technology called the Surface Treatment System (STS) allowing the feature to last the entire life-time of the film. By extending the life of the AC feature, the grower can reduce the possibility of disease caused by wet leaves and make it possible to reduce the use of chemicals thus lowering production costs.
The Sun Master EVO AC, will be available in the following widths:
12', 14', 16', 18', 20', 21', 22', 24', 28', 32', 36', 40', 42' & 44'
