2035 Vari-Shade Concentrate, 1 qt. (C2035)



Greenhouse Shading Paint

Vari-Shade screens out excess summer sun, but becomes transparent during rainy weather to allow more light into the greenhouse. When Vari-Shade dries it turns white, resuming its shading effect. The wet/dry-clear/shade cycle can repeat indefinitely as weather conditions change. Vari-Shade can be thinned with water to provide the shading density desired. Apply with roller or brush. 1 quart covers approx. 800 sq. ft.

Note: We may not be able to ship when destination temperatures are below 25° F because the product contains water and may freeze. We will hold your order until it is safe to ship.
