Regular Stick formulation is ideal for year-round shading. Heavy rains will result in some removal with light brushing required for 100% removal. 5 gallon pail.
FOR EXTERIOR USE. Premium Greenhouse Shading can be used over most types of greenhouse exteriors. It can be applied by brush, roller or spray. Spray application is generally the most efficient method of applying Premium Greenhouse Shading and will usually result in a more uniform shade density and more even wear. Spray tip sizes of .03, .04, .06, .08 and angles of 65 - 85 work well. Consult your supplier of spray equipment for their specific recommendations.
Premium Greenhouse Shading is a super concentrated formula designed to be diluted with water. Standard dilution rate is 1 part Premium Greenhouse Shading to 8 parts water which will provide approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of coverage. Ratios and shading effect can be adjusted according to the grower's particular needs. For a denser shade, several lighter, more diluted coats are recommended over a single, less diluted, heavy coat. A heavy coat can tend to cause "mud cracking" which can lead to eventual flaking and less even wear.
Time, Temperature and Wear
Best to apply in the morning above 50F (10C), after dew has lifted or late afternoon. Application within 12 to 24 hours of rain may result in premature wash off. Frost will also loosen shade. Residues on new plastic can act as a release agent causing lack of adhesion and wash off of Premium Greenhouse Shading. A mist coat of Shading over new plastic followed by a regular application has proven effective in promoting normal adhesion and wear. Application during hot, midday sun will tend to bake the shade more quickly, thus enhancing durability. In addition, plastic glazing heated by the sun and/or worn by the weather is more porous and will promote greater adhesion. Rate of wear is also dependent on weather conditions.
