ACRYLITE® for green house glazing

Transmission characteristics of colorless ACRYLITE® Premium (FF) acrylic sheet are equal or superior to those of ordinary window glass. Colorless ACRYLITE® Premium (FF) sheet can be used for greenhouse glazing since plants will grow as well under these materials as they would under glass.

ACRYLITE® Premium (FF) sheets are opaque to long wave radiation above 2200 nanometers. Long wave radiation is emitted by the mass, such as soil or concrete, inside a greenhouse. This opacity creates the “greenhouse” or heat-trapping, effect.
