All the following XL Polythenes benefits from an  5 year UVI breakdown guarantee and contain a special anti drip/anti fog additive (AF) to reduce condensation in the tunnel. It incorporates the latest (MLLDPE) Super Strength polymer technology to give a film which is stronger and more gale resistant than some films which are up to 50% thicker. All the polythenes are diffused except the Sunmaster Clear. Diffused Polythene has the ability to allow the same amount of UV into the tunnel as your plants get outside with the benefit of being slightly cooler inside your tunnel in high sunlight conditions, than a clear polythene, giving you a more pleasant working environment and reducing leaf tip burning.
 

SunMaster Clear
Light transmission of ~91%. Thickness 150mu
Its ability to allow the same amount of UV into the tunnel as your plants get outside gives speedier rooting, and stronger bushier plants.
For all crops where colour especially where red and blue is important.

SunMaster Diffused
Light transmission of ~89 %. Thickness 150mu
It extends the season in the autumn and brings it forward in spring and even though it is not a SuperThermic cover it will give slight frost protection as well. Its ability to allow the same amount of UV into the tunnel as your plants get outside with the benefit of being slightly cooler inside your tunnel in high sunlight conditions than a clear polythene, giving you a more pleasant working environment and reducing leaf tip burning.
For all crops where colour especially where red and blue is important.

Sterilite SuperThermic
Light transmission of ~88%. Thickness 180mu
Its special temperature control properties (TCF) will keep the tunnel cooler in the summer than other thermic or clear films, and because of its exclusive Thermic additive it can extend the growing season into the autumn and bringing it forward in the spring. Sterilite is also suitable for organic growing, because of the UV block. This reduces Aphids and Whitefly as well as fungal diseases such as downy mildew and botrytis.  Aphids see in UV light, so if you remove it they can't fly, they might enter but won't colonise. Botrytis and Mildew also need UV light to renew themselves.
Benefits tunnels which will be heated.
Vegetables, Flowers, Fruit, Bedding plants and over wintering

SunMaster SuperThermic
Light transmission of ~89%. Thickness 150mu
This is similar to the Sterilite but allows the UV light through.
Its special temperature control properties (TCF) will keep the tunnel cooler in the summer than other thermic or clear films, and because of its exclusive Thermic additive it can extend the growing season into the autumn and bringing it forward in the spring. Super Thermic  technology is a must for any tunnel which is to be heated.
Benefits tunnels which will be heated.
For all crops where colour especially where red and blue is important.
Vegetables, Flowers, Fruit, Bedding plants and over wintering
