ReduFuse & ReduFuseIR

 

 

ReduFuse is a coating that diffuses the light when it enters the greenhouse. Diffused light penetrates deeper into the crop and can improve production and quality.

Properties

  • Very high light transmission
  • An evenly balanced climate due to light diffusion
  • Less stress in the crop
  • More photosynthesis, also in the lower leaves
  • Lower leaf temperature
  • Transparent during rainfall
  • Highly wear-resistant
  • More comfortable work conditions
  • Only to be applied om glass roofs

Application

ReduFuse is suitable for all crops that need large amounts of light. Shading is minimal so there is no protection against heat radiation. ReduFuse has proven successful when applied to vegetable crops and highly light-dependent flowers and plants.

How to apply

For the best results, ReduFuse should be diluted with a certain amount of clean water (depending on the application method)  and sprayed evenly on a dry and clean greenhouse roof. The best layer is obtained when sprayed by machine. ReduFuse should only be applied on glass roofs with a roof washer available.

How to remove

ReduFuse can be removed with ReduClean. Spray at least 250 litres of ReduClean per hectare, diluted with 5-7 parts of clean water, evenly on the desired roof area (26 US gallon/acre). Preferable ReduClean is sprayed by machine. Only apply when the roof surface is dry but heavy rainfall is expected within 2 days. In most cases the ReduFuse is then entirely washed away by the rain. If not, the roof should be brushed with a roof washer.

 

 

 

 

ReduFuse IR is a coating that reduces heat radiation while diffusing the light when it enters the greenhouse.

Properties

  • High light transmission (PAR)
  • High reflection of heat radiation (infrared)
  • An evenly balanced climate due to light diffusion
  • Less stress in the crop
  • More photosynthesis, also in the lower leaves
  • Lower leaf temperatures
  • Highly wear-resistant
  • Easy to remove with ReduClean
  • More comfortable work conditions
  • Suitable for glass, acrylate, polycarbonate and plastic film

Application

ReduFuse IR is suitable for all crops that are heavily dependent on light and has proven successful when applied to flowers, plants and vegetables in warm climates and during warm periods. ReduFuse IR is ideal for crops that thrive on diffused light but cannot stand too much heat.

How to apply

For the best results, ReduFuse IR should be diluted with a certain amount of clean water (depending on the application method)  and sprayed evenly on a dry and clean greenhouse roof. The best layer is obtained when sprayed by machine.

How to remove

ReduFuse IR is easy to remove with ReduClean. Spray at least 250 litres of ReduClean per hectare, diluted with 5-7 parts of clean water, evenly on the desired roof area. (26 US gallon/acre) Only apply when the roof surface is dry but rainfall is expected in the next few days. The rain will wash of the ReduFuse IR layer.
