- 6mm thick polyethylene
- 91% light transmission per layer
- Guaranteed life of at least 4 years
- Limits buildup of condensation
Covering overhead starts to rise when extras are added - anti-condensate, thermal capabilities, light diffusion or bee compatibility. Light transmission is 91% per layer. The Thermal AC Film is a new generation of horticultural films - combining all of these extras into one package. Superior drip control, energy savings, light diffusion and bee compatibility are all packaged together to provide growers with one film at one cost. However, please note that product should not come into contact with PVC piping as this will degrade the product and void the warranty. If using with pvc, please use our batten tape or white felt in between.

Why Use Anti-Condensate Films?
Formation of condensation inside a greenhouse is a major issue in a polyethylene greenhouses. Condensation droplets have been shown to reduce light transmission by as much as 50%. In addition to a of light quality, crop damage/spots, washout on seed beds and possible pathogen development may also occur. All of the anti-condensate films contain surface tension modifiers to help limit the formation of condensation droplets.
There are many factors that will influence the longevity of the anti-condensate feature of all polyethylene films. Some factors that affect anti-condensate performance are:
- a very warm season
- a very humid/rainy season
- increased plant transpiration caused by high irrigation rates
- poor airflow
- ventilation practices
- insufficient film slopes

Important Note: Depending on the environment, Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) based materials including any type of PVC pipe, PVC wire or PVC tape, etc. may react with greenhouse polymer films and cause wear. In such cases Chlorine generated from the degradation of PVC and the residual chlorine inside PVC may attack and destroy the Hindered Amine Light Stabilizer in the greenhouse polymer film. This may cause the film to prematurely degrade and will void the warranty. If using with pvc, please use our white felt in between.
Due to size and/or weight, sizes greater than 4,000 square feet must ship via Motor Freight Carrier instead of Standard Ground Service. Please phone a Greenhouse Megastore Sales Representative at 1-888-281-9337 if you have any questions regarding shipment of this product.

Our customer service representative has been in contact with the customer and has provided assistance with correcting this matter.
We have checked with the manufacturer and the condensate control coating is only applied to one side of the film. This side will have printing on the film, depending on width ordered. If has printing, the printing will read correctly, left to right, from the INSIDE of the greenhouse when installed. If upside down, printing will be inverted. Some smaller widths may not have printing. If there is not printing simply imagine as a large roll of carpet. Stand on the cut edge and kick the roll away from you. As it unrolls and unfolds it will be on the correct way.
This film should definitely minimize this type of condensation and is guaranteed to do so. We have contacted this customer to ensure that the right product was sent.
