shade and mesh Net

Due to global warming, there are large areas of the world where crop production inside greenhouses is not possible. But, growing crops in the open field leads to lower yields, due to virus-carrying insects. A net-house solves these challenges by both protecting the crop from insects and enabling airing of the growing area. These nets are required to have specific optical properties, good mechanical strength and long-lasting outdoor performance.

Tosaf offers specially-designed colors and UV MB with excellent dispersion that provide good processability.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

Insect repellent MB

It is increasingly important to improve air flow in net houses, but in increasing the hole sizes to achieve this, the crops become vulnerable to insects. We have developed an optical insect repellent MB, which mainly affects whiteflies and thrips, to enable crop production at a lower mesh net, whilst providing protection from virus-carrying insects.

High chemical resistance UV

Shade and mesh nets are produced at very high extrusion temperatures at which the market’s benchmark for UV with high chemical resistant is not stable. We have developed a UV MB that is suitable for these process temperatures, while also giving good UV stability to the polymer when high levels of pesticides are used.

Our Products

UV

The production of tapes and monofilaments are high-throughput processes that involve high processing temperatures. We have designed a specialized UV MB that does not cause tearing of the tape and monofilaments, and does not wear down the blades that cut the tapes.

White

Our high-quality white MB contains an outdoor white pigment that is very well dispersed, to avoid tears in the tapes and monofilaments and make it suitable for this application.

Green

For a green MB to be suitable for this application and avoid tears in the tapes and monofilaments, it must contain very well-dispersed pigments with high light fastness and weatherability. Our high-quality green MB gives producers all these qualities.

Brown

For a brown MB to be suitable for this application and avoid tears in the tapes and monofilaments, it must contain very well-dispersed pigments with high light fastness and weatherability. Our high-quality brown MB gives producers all these qualities.
