Plant protection clips and hoses

The protection of plants is one of the most important factors in the area of horticultural and agricultural technology. REHAU offers two solutions which fulfil this requirement; our RAUTOXAM hose for the dispersion of pesticide treatments and our silicone grafting clips.

Grafting clips

Held together naturally

REHAU grafting clips made from a special silicone formulation are used when grafting the heads of fruit trees as a binding element between the base and the fruit variety.The little helpers also ensure at the same time that the connection has the necessary stability.

Product range

The clips can be used for all fruit and vegetable types that require grafting. Different seedling grafting clip diameters are available;

  • 1.3 mm
  • 1.6 mm
  • 2.1 mm
  • 2.7 mm

Advantages

  • Due to the elastic behavior of the special silicone formulation, the tightness of the grip orientates itself to the resistance of the stalk. Squashing of the stalk is therefore avoided.
  • In addition to this, the clips are highly flexible and the prevention of growth between the base of the graft and the head cutting is avoided.
  • The cutting grows out of the clip with time, i.e. the clip falls off once the grafting process is complete.
  • The physiologically harmless nature, the heat-resistance and possibility of sterilisation (in the case of an increased requirement for no bacterial contamination) are other advantages which support the use of seedling clips made from the special REHAU silicone formulation.

Pesticide tratment hose

Don't give pests a chance - When handling pesticides, safety is top priority.

'RAUTOXAM' hoses are therefore subject to very strict quality inspections and fulfil the directives and accident prevention guidelines of the trade associations for the agricultural sector.

REHAU's 'RAUTOXAM' hose is used in the dispersion of pesticide treatment as part of the agricultural process. It is used with agricultural machinery.


Properties

  • Abrasion-resistant
  • Weathering and ageing-resistant
  • Cadmium-free
  • Easy to handle
