Shade nets are crucial for plant protection and agricultural yield, and their varying colors often raise questions about their production process. This blog clarifies whether shade nets are colored using added dyes post-production or if the color is integrated during manufacturing.
What is Dye?
Dye is a substance, often a liquid, used to impart color to textiles, making them appear more appealing or suited to specific purposes.
What are Masterbatches?
Masterbatches are granules utilized to color plastics during the manufacturing process.
They are concentrated mixtures of pigments or additives encapsulated into a carrier resin.
Are Shade Nets Colored Using Added Dyes?
No，shade nets are colored using specified masterbatches mixed with HDPE particles and other additives, like ultraviolet stabilizers, during production.
This mixture is drawn into plastic threads and then woven into nets.
This ensures the longevity of color and eliminates harmful substances that could affect plants and the environment, avoiding the potential issues associated with post-production dyeing.
The use of masterbatches in the production of shade nets integrates color from the onset, offering an eco-friendly, durable solution.
This method guarantees color longevity, plant safety, and environmental protection.
