Mulch Films

The mechanical performance of The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) plastics makes them an ideal choice for mulch films.

Mulch films serve a number of different purposes. Transparent mulch film is used to encourage early season plant growth and early cropping, whereas black mulch films are used to control weed growth and white films provide reflected sunlight for the plants. In all cases, a more effective use of the available water is achieved. Most mulch films are 10 to 50 microns in thickness and used in widths up to 3 meters
