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.

strong but limited in width, an awesome cheap alternative to polycarb for hail-proof small-time glazing.
I have had this product on my hoop house for two years, and need to replace it only because I didn't have it sufficiently battened down against strong winds, and it eventually began to tear. I live in high desert in New Mexico, fierce sun, winds up to fifty MPH. sometimes heavy snow. This time I will fasten it with small pieces of wood screwed down over the plastic and fastening it to the wood structure of the hoop house foundation, and I think it will last many years. This is THE BEST.
Easy to work with and lasted 8 years in the Arizona sun!
I used the polyfilm to cover a grow globe I built. The idea being to turn it into a greenhouse in the winter and a more efficient grow room in the summer. This poly film is pretty easy to work with. The only difficulty was that tape didn't stick to it (I tried multiple kinds) so I had to staple it which was not ideal. Other than that I liked the stuff and the greenhouse megastore is good to work with.
Seems like good stuff. It was cut a bit crooked, but was over sized enough to work anyway.
Great quality should last for years
Extremely sturdy and easy to install. Excellent light transmission. I would recommend this product.
Good quality. Just as described.
Went up well and have no complaints at this point.
I received the solar plastic on time & for the price expected. I am using it for hail protection over a vegetable garden & it appears to be working as hoped.
