• Temporary paints

      Shading paints that wear off gradually over time and do not need to be cleaned off at the end of the season. This range is designed to offer growers an effective, user-friendly solution.


      Temporary protection from light and heat for different periods of time without having to clean the paint off at the end of the season.

    • Removable paints

      Often called On/Off, these paints produce results that are stable over time until removed using the appropriate cleaning product. Combining shading and diffusion solutions, this range gives growers control over when they remove the coating.

REMOVABLE PROTECTION FROM HEAT WHILE MAINTAINING GROW-LIGHT

Transpar® is a removable shading agent based on a special pigment that reflects heat radiation very efficiently, while maintaining high grow-light levels. Transpar diffuses incoming light which is beneficial in optimizing the greenhouse climate. It is very wear resistant and can be applied on the outside of all standard greenhouses. Transpar is easily removed with Topclear at the end of the season.

  Minimum light shading, maximum heat shading
  High diffusion rate
  Applicable to all types of greenhouses
  Very wear resistant
  Removable with Topclear

Why Transpar

High solar radiation means high grow light levels for photosynthesis. However, it also generates heat radiation which can be stressful to the crop. Comparing to traditional whitewash coatings Transpar ensures a higher grow-light transmission (PAR) while the heat radiation is partly reflected (NIR).

More grow-light results in more photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process where the plant energy from the sunlight transfers in sugars. These sugars are the building blocks for plant growth, fruit production and flower quality.
The heat radiation is not used by the crop for the photosynthesis. It will heat the greenhouse and the crop what leads to stress for the plant. By reducing the heat radiation in the greenhouse, plant temperature will be more moderate, resulting in better quality and higher production.

Next to the increased grow-light transmission, Transpar has great diffusing properties. This improves greenhouse climate, resulting in positive effects on the crop, the quality and the production.

Usage

Transpar needs to be diluted with water before spraying it onto the greenhouse. Depending on the application method, type of greenhouse and climate, more or less water and buckets should be used to achieve the best result. Transpar can be applied manually, by machine and by helicopter. See How to use for more detailed information about applications and dosage.

Removing

Transpar is removable with Topclear at every desired moment. Apply Topclear in the advised amount and dilution maximum 3 days before rainfall. Read the complete instructions on how to use Topclear.
