Product ID: CH0005
Formation of condensation on the inner surface of a polytunnel cover can be harmful to plants, annoying to personnel, & can reduce light transmission by as much as 50%.
Sun Clear is a non-toxic coating that reduces the effects of condensation. A misting Sprayer or roller can apply it to any type of polythene cover, even with existing crops growing.
When Sun Clear is applied, light transmission will be significantly improved. Condensation will run down the inside of the Polythene cover. A single application can last 2-5 years.
Polythene can be manufactured that offers condensation control (Anti-Fog). What is commonly not known, is that this treatment does not last beyond ONE year - The additive ultimately gets washed away and the polythene cover will eventually be depleted of the condensation controlling, additive.
A bottle of 568ml has an indefinite shelf life and will provide coverage of approximately 5,000 sq.ft - enough to cover a First Tunnels ‘20ft x 72ft’ polytunnel twice times over.
A water based solution, developed to stop greenhouse dripping in flexible, rigid plastic or glass greenhouses, tunnels and other plastic structures.

Use white vinegar with a dilution ratio of 10-1. 10 parts water to 1 part vinegar. Algon also removes Sun Clear.
Noticed other polythene suppliers sell polythene that claim they reduce condensation, but the cost of these films put me off, this bottle was more cost effective and I reckon I've enough to coat my film 10 times. Also put this on my bathroom mirror, and wow, it works....
This works like magic, spray on and leave
Not sure if it works yet watch this space rather pricy
Applied easily.... We shall have to wait for the results.
