Gintec Aluminet can be used to protect crops such as ornamentals,
flowers, foliage, fern, tree, and vegetable seedlings. An excellent cloth for
crops that are highly susceptible to heat stall during warm weather.
Gintec Aluminet is a special knitted screen made from metallized HDPE (High
Density Polypropylene). The fibers are produced from mono-oriented HDPE giving
the fiber durability and longevity. After an aluminum metallization process,
the films are covered with a special anti-oxidation coating. The net is knitted
into a precise uniform texture that meets the ASTM-D 3887 standard.

the perfect cloth to cover the outside of a greenhouse. It does not absorb heat
. Its dual functionality both shades and cools the greenhouse.

install. Gintec Aluminet is also used as a direct covering over vegetable crops
. The aluminized screens not only provide shade, but also protect against frost
. Under actual field trials, crops covered with Gintec Aluminet during frost
conditions had no damage.
