Types of Plastic
We accept several types of plastic - we will describe a few of our main ones below:
What is it used for: Irrigation
Drip Tape: Thin walled, made of special grade polyethylene material. It is also called as collapsible hose, once pressurized it becomes round and collapses on depressurizing.
Drip Tube: Thicker wall than drip tape, which allows it to keep its form when water is not present. This tube is pressure compensating and tends to have a longer life than drip tape.
What is it used for: Covering Metal Framed Green houses to assist in humidity retention
Description: Usually semi-clear, approximately 5-6mm in thickness.
Requirements: Must be as free as possible of dirt and moisture.
