In 2003 a new 3-layer production line of US & German origin has been installed for increasing the production of specialised polytunnel films.
The line is designed to process the latest generation of ultra-strong polyethylene resins and is controlled with a sophisticated computer system.
A tailor-made double C-folding system with fully automated winders offers the possibility of different folding configurations and roll sizes for ease of storage, handling and installation.
Increasing capacity by 50 % and at the same time improving flexibility and cutting-down response time, this new line stands at the forefront of PLASTIKA KRITIS' effort to be the No. 1 producer of poly tunnel films worldwide.
PLASTIKA KRITIS was the first company in the world to use 3-layer technology for producing greenhouse films (1983). It, therefore, possesses valuable experience in this state-of-the-art technology.
3-layer films consist of 3 inseparable layers of different polymers and additives. Each of them contributes to the quality of the film with its useful properties, thus combining all their advantages for optimum performance.
PLASTIKA KRITIS is the only agricultural films producer who manufactures in-house all additive concentrates (UV, IR, anti-drip, anti-fog, etc.) that provide to the films their special properties.
This offers to PLASTIKA KRITIS a unique flexibility in producing, at lower cost, a wide range of films adapted to the specific requirements of each area or crop.
The in-house production of concentrates ensures the optimum selection of additives as well as the control of quality from A to Z, providing to the company a unique ability to combine competitive cost with outstanding quality.
