Poly Panels.....

I am in process of building a greenhouse. I have found the panels but wonder if they are translucent enough at 70% Can anyone help??

Here is a link that might be useful: FarmTek panels

First, that's a good price. Second, why are you getting white? are you growing in summer and need to cut heat down? What will you do in winter? We need more info for a better answer...

Those just say corregated plastic. It almost implies they are poly carb because of the shipping information......but you'd better check to see if they really are. I think not, given the price. They really don't give any specs with it. Where did you find out they have 70% light transmission? They do not indicate they are UV stable. If they aren't, they'll yellow, and crack eventually.
Sooner rather than later.
