INTRODUCING AG-TUFF GOLD: Plastic Technology Pty Ltd is proud to announce the introduction of AG-TUFF GOLD to its AG-TUFF range of products.
at the company’s plant in Reservoir Victoria, AG-TUFF GOLD Greenhouse
Covers have superior qualities for the most demanding outdoor
specifically developed additives blended in accordance with a special
proprietary formula and the use of the latest in computer technology
are combined to ensure the correct mixing of the different additives to
produce the unique properties inherent in the AG-TUFF GOLD product.
GOLD now contains a specifically formulated additive which virtually
eliminates the problem of weakness along the folds. The new blends in
AG-TUFF GOLD ensure that the folds are twice as strong making failure
along the folds a thing of the past.
state of the art UV protective additive (HALS) ensures that AG-TUFF
GOLD is better protected from damage and lasts longer than conventional
polyethylene covers. Life expectancy for polythene greenhouse covers
used to be 18 months to 2 years. AG-TUFF GOLD has a life expectancy of
between 3 to 5 years.
GOLD has excellent light transmission qualities, resists stress in the
heat and shrinks less. Not only will AG-TUFF GOLD resist melting from
hot hoops, there is less chance of tearing at the tunnel ends. In
colder areas AG-TUFF GOLD won't readily become brittle and it has a far
greater flex-crack resistance. AG-TUFF GOLD's superior weather
resistance minimises the need for repairs.
because AG-TUFF GOLD is produced in Australia, you have the comfort of
knowing that the manufacturer is right here to personally assist and
advise on any problems being encountered and to develop new films to
meet the specific needs of the Australian grower.
AG-TUFF GOLD is available in the following grades:
GOLD The work horse film. It is tough, it is strong and it lasts.
Designed for very high clarity (light transmission) and able to handle
wide temperature ranges.
GOLD (AF) The same film as AG-TUFF GOLD but with the addition of an
Anti-Fog agent. This film inhibits the formation of large water
droplets on the inner surface of the greenhouse or tunnels preventing
damage to leaves and flowers, keeps leaves dry and therefore reduces
the incidence of disease and maximises light transmission by keeping
the film clear of water droplets.
LIGHT As the greenhouse ages with the build up of dirt and rain spots,
the light emission decreases. AG-TUFF LIGHT is specifically designed to
enable growers who require maximum light and clean bright tunnels to
replace the tunnels on an annual basis at an affordable price. This
material is thinner in gauge and does not have the same life expectancy
as regular Agtuff.
roll of AG-TUFF GOLD Greenhouse film is double wrapped in cardboard and
poly to protect it from damage. Each roll is clearly labelled and
includes a lists of do’s and don’ts on usage of the film and a printed
code number for easy identification of the date of manufacture.
AG-TUFF range of products are constantly being extended and developed.
Currently trials of chemical resistant films are being tested, not by
scientists in a far away overseas laboratory, but by growers in
Australian fields where new products can be evaluated under real
