Each layer of Nikoflex performs a specific function. By the skilful blending of polymers only the smallest amount of chemical additive is needed. Nikoflex film retains its superior properties over a longer period of time than any other greenhouse film that we know of.

Nikoflex greenhouse film is manufactured to ISO 9001.

Nikoflex film provides both a global light transmission (PAR) of 91% and a light diffusion of 23%. The film actually reduces shadows, helps prevent burning, and ensures better distribution of light even to the lower parts of the plant. High light transmission is essential for photosynthesis and plant growth. However, light diffusion also increases photosynthetic efficiency. Nikoflex film contains 15-30% more UV stabiliser and can be expected to last in excess of 5 years under normal growing conditions.

Light Transmission & Diffusion:

High light transmission is essential for photosynthesis and plant growth. However, light diffusion also increases photosynthetic efficiency. Nikoflex film provides both a global light transmission (PAR) of 91% and a light diffusion of 23%. The film actually reduces shadows, helps prevent burning, and ensures better distribution of light even to the lower parts of the plant.

Thermic Properties:

With an IR absorption of over 80% and a high EVA content, Nikoflex film prevents major heat loss while relying less on chemicals and more on natural non-volatile polymers.

The benefits achieved using thermic films such as Nikoflex include:

  • Lower energy costs
  • Temperature is more evenly controlled with smoother drops and increased night time temperatures
  • Greater protection from frost
  • Earlier crop harvests
  • Higher quality yields

Anti Static:

The special anti static outer layer repels dust, dirt and industrial pollutants. This ensures optimal light transmission.

Anti-fogging effect:

Special anti-condensate additives lower the surface tension between film and water. This results in a continuous thin layer of water running down the greenhouse sides and prevents the formation of water droplets.

Warranty:

Nikoflex film contains 15-30% more UV stabiliser and can be expected to last in excess of 5 years under normal growing conditions.
