Plastic mulching films are an essential part of today’s agriculture market, keeping heat and moisture in the soil and preventing weed growth.
PCPPL offers a wide range masterbatches that are ideally suited for mulch applications like Silver, Black, UV, etc. These include colors that help control light transmission and heat retention.
Thanks to technological advances, PCPPL is able to produce tailor-made additives for use in greenhouse films, to support the dual goals of a reduced need for arable land and maximum yields per acre. Our range of products address the key requirements of controlled heat/light transmission, controlled mechanical properties and excellent UV stability with high chemical resistance.
Working together with film manufacturers, we apply three decades of experience and know-how that have made us world leaders in our field to design the exact film that meets specific crop, location and climate requirements.
Due to global warming, there are large areas of the world where crop production inside greenhouses is not possible. But, growing crops in the open field leads to lower yields, due to virus-carrying insects. A net-house solves these challenges by both protecting the crop from insects and enabling airing of the growing area. These nets are required to have specific optical properties, good mechanical strength and long-lasting outdoor performance.
PCPPL offers specially-designed green & other colors and UV MB with excellent dispersion that provide good processability.
In cold countries, maize and grass are grown during the summer, but need to be stored for use throughout the year. A plastic film is used to store the silage and maintain its nutritional value. Due to the high value of the silage it protects, it is crucial for the silage film to withstand extreme weather and resist tear for an entire year.
PCPPL products address the key requirements of mechanical strength, thin gauge extrusion, high opacity, excellent UV stability with minimal effect on cling performance.
In severe conditions where high concentration of Sulphur based pesticides and insecticides are used, the films and shade nets do not sustain themselves and gets damaged before their life incurring huge losses to the agriculturists and the business associated with the industry.
In association with end user, PCPPL has developed Ultraviolet (UV) absorber masterbatches made using patented technology containing 3rd generation additives to provide optimum performance and long life in severe conditions where even sulphur based insecticides and pesticides are used.
With high gloss, high % of carbon and TiO2 and extremely proper dispersion provides the manufacturers great tinting strength at lower dosage with the smoothest finish on the film.
It is manufactured to provide a high surface gloss, similar to a metallized plastic piece.
Due to high reflecting nature, the film protects the crops and the soil from possible adverse weather conditions.
PCPPL silver color is used for crops that need UV light for color formation and to repel insects that use the UV light to navigate.
Green is a photo-selective color that blocks the light in the PAR to eliminate weeds, while transferring the light in the NIR to heat the soil.
s PCPPL green color has very unique optical characteristics designed especially considering low dosage, high gloss and good film physical properties for the customer.
The production of tapes and monofilaments are high-throughput processes that involve high processing temperatures.
s Designed a specialized UV MB that does not cause tearing of the tape and monofilaments, and does not wear down the blades that cut the tapes.
The role of PCPPL additive masterbatches is to improve the performance the agri products.
They can protect and improve optical properties and film product appearance, limit flammability in compliance with regulations, and enhance the processability of plastics.
PCPPL has a wide range of additive masterbatches which cater to the customers’ specific needs.
We provide a dazzling array of colors designed to manipulate light, temperature, and moisture and repel insects as per the crop and weather specification.
