ReduFuse IR is a coating that reduces heat radiation while diffusing the light when it enters the greenhouse. That improves growth and production.
A diffuse coating distributes the incoming light. This leads to the top of the crop getting a bit less light, the middle leaves more. Net photosynthesis therefore increases. ReduFuse IR distributes sunlight in the greenhouse and protects the crop from heat radiation.
ReduFuse IR is suitable for all crops that are heavily dependent on light and has proven successful when applied to flowers, plants, and vegetables in warm climates and during warm periods. ReduFuse IR is ideal for crops that thrive on diffused light but cannot stand too much heat.
- Distributes incoming PAR light evenly in the greenhouse
- High reflection of heat radiation
- Light penetrates deeper into the crop
- Net photosynthesis increases (higher yield and better quality)
- Suitable for glass, acrylate, polycarbonate and plastic film
- Easy to remove with ReduClean for diffuse coatings
How to apply?
The best and longest-lasting results, with optimum light transmission, are obtained when ReduFuse IR is applied to a clean, dry greenhouse roof, as follows:
- Fill the mixing tank with the required quantity of clean water and add ReduFuse IR, stirring continuously.
- Stir the spray liquid frequently during the application.
- Apply ReduFuse IR evenly to the greenhouse surface, preferably using a spraying machine.
- Do not use any non-ReduSystems shading products in combination with ReduFuse IR.
- Do not apply when rain is expected within 12 hours, respect drying time.
How to remove?
ReduFuse IR should be removed with ReduClean for diffuse coatings. Spray at least 250 liters of ReduClean for diffuse coatings, diluted with 5-7 parts clean water, per hectare evenly on the desired roof area. Only apply when the roof surface is dry but heavy rainfall is expected within 2 days.
Frequently asked questions
Yes, ReduFuse IR can be used on plastic. Many types of plastic already diffuse the light to some extent, so extra diffusion is often not necessary. However, ReduFuse IR reflects part of the heat too so it can be a worthwhile addition for plastic greenhouses.
