ReduSystems®

ReduFlex Green is a photo-selective coating that reduces the levels of green and yellow light in greenhouses. It substantially reflects this part of the grow-light that some crops use  less efficiently for photo-synthesis. Reflecting the excess energy in the grow-light and the infrared radiation should reduce greenhouse temperatures.

Properties

  • High reflection of green and yellow light
  • Lowers greenhouse temperatures through high reflection of infrared radiation
  • Relatively more radiation from blue and red light
  • Lower plant and greenhouse temperatures
  • Highly wear-resistant
  • Suitable for glass, acrylate, polycarbonate and plastic film
  • Easy to remove with ReduClean

Application

ReduFlex Green will be tested on various crops in 2014. Contact Mardenkro for more information or if you would like to participate in a trial.

How to apply

For the best results, ReduFlex Green 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. The table below shows the number of buckets required and the effect on the greenhouse climate.

How to remove

ReduFlex Green 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 ReduFlex Green layer.
