Silage wrapping is a silage film typically used in higher-moisture, high-flow baling applications. The silage wrap allows the wrap to contract and expand with changing temperatures during the drying process, and this feature allows for an earlier crop time even when using traditional dry baling techniques. It also allows a more even finish, as smaller bubbles are not blown out during the drying process. A well designed and maintained silage wrap can even improve moisture-holding capacities and overall plant yield.
There are many advantages to using an intact silage wrap. The wrapping provides a much tighter fit, providing better puncture resistance; this is most apparent during the initial application process. The tight fit provides additional protection against moisture that could potentially cause the formation of mould, mildew or rot. The tight fit also provides a consistent diameter, allowing the proper airflow through the material and reducing moisture build-up.
While there are some trade-offs with design, the flexibility of the silage wrap allows for unique and exciting designs. For example, several firms use silage wrap to create decorative borders on their structures, terraces, fences and plaques, and while these boundaries require a different method of application than traditional baling, they are lovely and practical. Other companies have applied silage wrap to cover unsightly and unattractive mouldings on structures, such as walls and baseboards.
Silage Wrap SA is also frequently used to protect hot tub covers and hot tub accessories. Hot tub covers and accessories are often subjected to condensation, rust, and moisture. As a result, the cover often becomes saturated with water and requires protection before properly sealing and protecting the tub from the elements. Companies that specialize in baling can craft customized wraps to meet an individual’s specific needs. For example, the wrap can be custom-made to prevent the cover from submerging in standing water, preventing mould or mildew from forming. It can also prevent moisture from damaging the finish on the cover or protecting the material from corrosion, cracking, chipping or warping.
There are a variety of uses for silage plastic wrap, although the application most frequently seen is wrapping large items. Typically, bales are large sheets of protective plastic, most typically woven in a standard weave to produce a sturdy covering. However, if the bale is more significant or complicated to work with, the professional may customize the wrapping to provide the best outcome for the customer.
Bales can be used for various reasons, including general transportation and storage, protecting supplies during manufacturing and on-site disposal, and protecting and maintaining plant equipment. In addition, because they are made of the same durable and robust plastic film as most traditional plastic packaging materials, bales are ideal for use with sensitive or delicate supplies and products. Some manufacturers even place transparent bales in areas where industrial waste is burned off. It helps reduce contamination of nearby landfills and ensure that toxic chemicals do not leak into the local groundwater.
