This document specifies the requirements related to dimensional, mechanical, optical and thermal characteristics of thermoplastic films used for covering permanent or temporary greenhouses and walking tunnels and low tunnels used for forcing and semi-forcing vegetable, fruit and flower crops.Lay-flat perforated cover films are also in the scope of this European Standard.It specifies a classification for the durability of covering films and the test methods referred to in this standard.This European Standard specifies also test methods for the determination of the chlorine and sulfur contents of films subjected to use.This European Standard is applicable to thermoplastic covering films used in agriculture and horticulture in Europe, in the thickness range 20 μm up to more than 250 μm, based on polyethylene and/or ethylene copolymers materials, of the following types: non-thermal films, thermal clear films and thermal diffusing films.This European Standard also defines guidance for installation, use and disposal of covering films. It defines the conventional expected lifetime, as well as rules that allow evaluating the remaining use potential in the event of a failure before the normal end-of-use date.

This European Standard specifies principles and requirements for the mechanical resistance and stability,
serviceability and durability for design and construction of commercial production greenhouse structures
irrespective of material, including their foundations, for the professional production of plants and crops.
Fire resistance-related aspects are not covered in this standard.

This European Standard specifies the requirements related to dimensional, mechanical, optical and thermal characteristics of thermoplastic films for mulching applications in agriculture and horticulture.
These mulching films are intended to be removed after use and not incorporated in the soil.
It specifies a classification for durability of mulching films and the test methods referred to in this document.
This European Standard is applicable to thermoplastic mulching films, used for agriculture and horticulture in Europe, based on polyethylene and/or ethylene copolymers, of the following types:
-   transparent films;
-   black films;
-   reflective films (e.g. white films, black/white films and black/silver films);
-   films of other colour(s) for weed control (e.g. green, brown).
This European Standard also defines installation, use and removal conditions of mulching films.
NOTE   Mulch films are considered as highly contaminated by soil and vegetal residues: the observed rates (or levels) of contamination of mulch films can vary from 70 % to 90 %. Therefore the film thickness is a key factor on the rate of contamination, the thinnest films (e.g. less than 25 µm) will be the mostly contaminated, difficult, expensive to remove, recover and recycle.

This European Standard specifies the requirements related to dimensional, mechanical, optical and
thermal characteristics of thermoplastic films used for covering permanent or temporary greenhouses
and walking tunnels and low tunnels used for forcing and semi-forcing vegetable, fruit and flower crops.
Lay-flat perforated cover films are also in the scope of this European Standard.
It specifies a classification for the durability of covering films and the test methods referred to in this
standard.
This European Standard specifies also test methods for the determination of the chlorine and sulfur
contents of films subjected to use.
This European Standard is applicable to thermoplastic covering films used in agriculture and
horticulture in Europe, in the thickness range 20 μm up to more than 250 μm, based on polyethylene
and/or ethylene copolymers materials, of the following types: non-thermal films, thermal clear films
and thermal diffusing films.
This European Standard also defines guidance for installation, use and disposal of covering films. It
defines the conventional expected lifetime, as well as rules that allow evaluating the remaining use
potential in the event of a failure before the normal end-of-use date.
NOTE These rules allow estimating the residual value of the films. These provisions only apply to the film
itself and the damage it has undergone. Any other problem falls within the scope of professional practices and the
general terms and conditions of sale.

This European Standard is applicable to transparent films, transparent clear and diffusing films (thermic) and black or black/white films based on polyethylene and its copolymers, which are designed to be used for mulching  the vegetable, fruit and flower crops.
This European Standard specifies the basic requirements for the optical and mechanical characteristics of various types of film.
From a detailed consideration of the different mulching plastics films used in agriculture and horticulture in the European market, different types of film are considered:
- transparent films (normal)
- transparent clear and diffusing films (thermic)
- black and black/white films
The range of thicknesses considered is from 10 µm up to 250 µm.
