Features and Benefits of our Silage Bale Wrap
Bale wrap is one of many terms used to describe silage wrap and predominantly refers to the film for wrapping big round bales. These bales are formed for the purpose of making fermented silage from the baled and wrapped fodder materials.
In terms of the differences that dictate the quality of bale wrap, the number of construction layers in the manufacture of the film will have a big influence on how that film behaves and ultimately how it performs.
We supply a range of bale netting and silage wrap options to suit all applications. Manufactured to high performance requirements, our products give you more stretch, more UV protection and better protection from oxygen ingress. From the higher performing 7 layer constructed films through to the 5 layer standard plastics, our range has got you covered for every application, every condition, any fodder material or bale shape.
Bale Wrap Construction Layers – Why it’s important
The number of layers in co-extruded silage film generally ranges between 3, 5 or 7 layers. While many years ago a 3-layer constructed bale wrap film was the standard, performance was improved with the introduction of 5-layer films to suit more demanding machinery. Nowadays, the benchmark appears to be 7-layer films, which for the purpose of wrapping round bales, are considered to have superior performance over 3-layers, and to a lesser degree 5-layer bale wrap products.
The advantages in performance are particularly in the areas of puncture resistance and tear resistance with the higher number of layers. So, for more challenging materials, 7-layer films are preferred, as they not only provide high performance in their main function of keeping your fodder protected, but they can also lead to better shaped bales.
While there have been recent inroads into the development of 9-layer film, these are generally more suitable for industrial applications over fodder conservation due to the film’s behaviour.
Our 5 layer and 7 Layer Silage Wrap Films
Our silage bale wrap range consists of only European made high quality products. Some machinery operates on a low stretch ratio of 50-55% and, in this case, doesn’t really push the extreme limits of the film. Therefore, the farmer or contractor will be more concerned with the price of the product over its performance. Our 5-layer film is generally less expensive and an excellent option in this case. It offers good quality results for a fair price and will work well in most all conditions.
In addition, the 5 layer range also offers a stretch of up to 70%, allowing farmers to do more with less. It’s also extremely user-friendly, offering the correct opacity to clearly identify when wrapping is adequate.
Our 7-layer coextruded films, on the other hand, offer total uniformity in the film thicknesses, meaning there are fewer weak spots that can occur due to the film being thinner in certain spots. This uniformity offers a smoother operation with fewer breakages and better dart impact features in the film as well, making it perfect for wrapping stalky crops. This film is preferred by serious machinery such as Goweil or McHale Twin Orbital wrappers, which have an aggressive start with a higher stretch rate of 70%. Machinery like this will generally require a quality 7-layer film for maximum performance, while a lesser quality film will have its limitations exposed with such machinery.
