Agro wires are specially designed monofilaments that can be used to replace traditional steel cables and wire in applications such as farming, agriculture, vineyards, orchards, culture under cover, wind breakers, green houses (shading and roofing), safe animal husbandry fences, dam and pond cover, marine cultures, and a variety of other things.
Agro wires are made from Nylon and Polyester, and their benefits are given below. Depending on the use, one would select between the two. The majority of the benefits these lines provide over traditional metal cables are the same, with a few notable exceptions that make them the preferable choice for specific applications.
Agro wires are lighter than steel cables making handling much easier than steel cables resulting in a much easier and faster installation than steel cables.
Once the Agro wire is properly tensioned it requires no maintenance and does not sag further because of the low stretch factor of PET.
Agro wires are highly U.V and weather stabilized. The wire does not degrade from exposure to sunlight and requires no maintenance in even extreme weather conditions.
One of the many advantages of the line is its stability against extreme temperatures which prevents melting and damage to the plastic film covering used in greenhouses to prevent frost damage to plants.
Agro wire does not rust and are non corrosive. The agro wire exhibits good resistance to chemicals and fertilizers and hence lasts longer.
Agro wire does not damage plants, animals or the environment.
One of the other advantages of using this wire is that it does not conduct electricity or currents making it a safe alternative in case of lightening.
PET Agro wire exhibits lower elongation and lower water, humidity or moisture absorption making it the preferred wire for many applications.
