AGC’s product range of fluorinated materials includes the super thin fluoropolymer film branded F-CLEAN. This film, also known as ETFE foil, improves the growth efficiency of fruits, vegetables and plants inside large-scale greenhouses. F-CLEAN™ ETFE film has a higher rate of light and UV transmission than glass, polyethylene or polycarbonate, allowing the full spectrum of solar light to pass through into the growing area. This results in earlier blooms and more colourful petals, as well as sweeter fruit and vegetables.
F-CLEAN™ is moreover treated with an anti-drip coating, preventing condensation and potential drip damage to the crop. Due to the low surface energy of the fluoropolymer film dirt gets washed away easily by rain and so it is practically self-cleaning.
