Sombrero Powder

ECONOMICAL WHITEWASH POWDER FOR GREENHOUSES

Sombrero powder is a cost effective shading product that is used for applying a temporary shade layer on greenhouses. It forms an efficient white barrier against too much heat and sunlight that can be used at all types of greenhouses around the world. The whitewash has a good wear resistance up to 2 months on which a second layer can be applied if necessary.  The shading will wear off gradually, which means that the shading effect is reduced slowly and there is no need for a cleaning product.
