Effective sunburn protection for watermelon, melon, apples, pomegranate, tomatoes, cucumbers or strawberries. Sun-exposed fruit surface temperatures are normally 10º to 18ºC higher than the official, measured air temperature. When temperatures are higher the risk of damages increase: greater than 40ºC, it exists a high risk of a necrotic patch; greater than 35ºC, the risk of browning damage becomes high and, between 30º to 35ºC, the damage is variable depending on wind, sunlight intensity (cloud cover), humidity and level of fruit acclimatisation to sunlight and other climatic factors that make influence on crops.
- It prevents fruits from darkening by solar burns.
- Filtering part of the UV, vis & IR light reducing the surface temperature and oxidative load on fruits.
- Increase production, quality and commercial yield of the harvest due its effects.
- Barrier effects on the surface of plant avoiding dehydration due high temperatures.
- Increases post-harvest half-life of the fruit.
- The particle structure facilitates the superficial coverage of the fruit.
