Major Factors Affecting the Longevity of Plastic Film Used as Greenhouse Covering
Thanks to improvements in plastic technology, manufacturers of plastic products can now modify plastics that would conventionally quickly deteriorate in outdoor settings with coatings, coextrusion and/or additives to increase their outdoor lifespan. These enhanced plastic products exhibit superior performance features and wear down less quickly when exposed to the elements. Therefore, they usually provide more years of service in outdoor environments. If you intend to use plastic film as covering for your greenhouse, you should be aware of the factors that may affect the lifespan of the sheeting.
