Personalized Greenhouse Shading
If you want a simple, customizable way to control light and UV levels in a structure, consider sun-shading compounds. These paint-like formulas can be applied using a paintbrush, roller or spray gun. When the compound dries, it turns into a white film that reflects the sun away. The standard dilution ratio will produce sun-blocking roughly equivalent to 50% shade cloth. By diluting the compound further, you can use a single coat for lighter shading or several coats for a denser shade. A five-gallon pail of shading compound will cover roughly 2,000 square feet using standard dilution.
We offer three levels of greenhouse shading performance. Lite Stick Shading Compound is a seasonal formula that will be washed away by moderate rain or light brushing. Regular Stick Shading Compound is meant to last for a full year. With Perma Stick Shading Compound, you can shade a greenhouse forever - even heavy rain barely affects the film.
