The aim of this project is to develop a method for determining the lifespan of coatings on glass in accordance with use in greenhouse horticulture and determining the various influence factors on aging. The innovation within the project is the development of a new method which in the future can also be used for testing the aging of other materials used in greenhouse horticulture (screens, foils) inside the greenhouse.
