Silage Films

Top Image

In cold countries, maize and grass are grown during the summer, but need to be stored for use throughout the year. A plastic film is used to store the silage and maintain its nutritional value. Due to the high value of the silage it protects, it is crucial for the silage film to withstand extreme weather and resist tear for an entire year. Our products address the key requirements of mechanical strength, thin gauge extrusion, high opacity, excellent UV stability with minimal effect on cling performance.

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS

Oxygen Barrier

The market for multi-layer barrier films in agricultural applications is constantly growing. This is particularly so in the context of silage film, which is produced with a PA layer or an EVOH layer. Since neither polymer is compatible with the PE in the adjacent layers, a tie layer is needed to allow for adherence of the PE and barrier layers. The accepted method for producing these films involves a 5-layer extruder. We have developed a new barrier MB that enables the production of barrier films without the need for a tie layer, allowing production of barrier film using a 3-layer extruder.

Our Products

UV

Stretch silage film and thick silage film are exposed to harsh weather conditions, from the cold of snow in winter to the heat of direct sunlight in summer. The straw and hay that they are protecting can cause a hole in the film, and even a slight degradation of the polymer can trigger the complete rupture of the film. Our UV additive provides sufficient UV protection to the polymer, to avoid any degradation of the film.

Green

We combine a well-dispersed, tailor-made color match that has high light fastness and weatherability, with a UV package to produce an MB that is ideal for producing both thin stretch films and thick silage film.

White

When producing white MB for silage applications, we use outdoor white pigment with a very good dispersion. Not only is there is no need to interrupt production for regular cleaning of the die, but the silage film will last for a few years in the field, without suffering from premature degradation.
