Aromatic vegetables and lush blossom in every season, ideal winter habitat for delicate plants: greenhouses render this possible, and offer protection against wind and weather. However, the climate has to be just right for different varieties of plants to grow all through the year in the best possible conditions: ideal temperatures and the appropriate amount of natural grow light. For companies in horticulture, these are key competitive factors.
Iriotec® 9000 lets sunlight into the greenhouse and keeps heat out
Heat-reflecting, translucent Iriotec® 9000 pigments fulfill exactly these requirements: they provide a colorless shading of the glazing. Most of the light that is essential for photosynthesis can pass into the greenhouse and serve the plants’ growth. At the same time, the invisible UV light is absorbed to a large extent. However, the multi-talented pigments show their greatest advantages in summer when heat usually accumulates in the greenhouse. Iriotec® 9000 pigments reflect the infrared part of sunlight and with it the heat radiation, reducing it by up to 75 percent. Conventional, non-pigmented glazing systems always reduce translucency as well – to the detriment of the plants’ growth.
EMD Performance Materials pigments of the Iriotec® 9000 series therefore not only offer considerable energy savings in greenhouse cooling when the sun shines with all its power, they also make additional shading for temperature equalization unnecessary.
