Suitable for all balewrappers

Silotite is suitable for use on all types of balewrappers including modern, complex machinery. Its consistently reliable, trouble-free performance enhances baling efficiency and throughput.


High puncture & tear resistance

The exceptional puncture and tear resistance of Silotite enables the film to cope easily with the impact of the shoots and stalks associated with stemmy, forage crops.


Greater resistance to oxygen ingress

The need to create the best possible air barrier is paramount to good crop fermentation. Thanks to its superior construction Silotite provides a highly effective barrier that impedes oxygen ingress.


Consistently good elasticity

Silotite has the high strength and flexibility required to retain a good bale shape post wrapping in addition to maximising bale density in the baling chamber.


Optimum adhesion level

Silotite’s optimised adhesive seals the bale effectively to help generate ideal anaerobic conditions. As well as enabling day and night wrapping this effective adhesive leaves no residue on the pre-stretch rollers.


UV protection in all climates

Silotite is manufactured to suit the various climatic conditions of the world.  This ensures that Silotite can withstand extremes of temperature to keep bales safe and secure during storage.


Certified to SP Standard

Silotite has been assessed and certified by the SP Technical Institute of Sweden (now called RISE), a leading international research institute. Certification involves a comprehensive examination of both the manufacturing processes and the finished product to ensure rigorous production standards.


Environmentally friendlier

Silotite is fully recyclable.  It can be recycled for use in a range of products from refuse sacks to street furniture.  Additionally, it can be reprocessed for energy where incinerator facilities exist.

10 Top tips of bail wrapping.

  1. Only ensile good quality grass, cut at the optimum growth stage, ideally 40-50% dry matter (DM). For haylage do not exceed 60% DM. Swath should be uniform in height, density and DM, and the full width of baler pick up. Bales should be dense and cylindrical in shape.
  2. Check that when on the wrapper, the centre of the bale is horizontally in line with the centre of the film reel.
  3. Check for correct percentage of film pre-stretch by making two marks horizontally 10cm apart on the film reel. Slowly commence wrapping, and locate these marks on the bale surface and measure their distance apart. As an example, for 70% stretch they should be 17cm apart
  4. Check on the bale for correct ‘neck-down’.
  5. Check that film overlap is no less than 50%.
  6. Ensure that a minimum 4 film layers are applied to all areas of bales with DM between 30% and 50%, and minimum 6 layers for those over 50% DM, all square bales, and all bales where the crop is of a coarse nature or is handled multiple times.
  7. Wrap at the stacking area if possible, but if not, move bales from field immediately after wrapping.
  8. Never use a spike to stack bales, and repair any damage to bales during the storage period immediately.
  9. Protect bales from birds, vermin and any chemicals that may reduce the UV protection that is in the film.
  10. Always read film and wrapper instructions before use.

Why use a high quality silage film, and why maintain air tight storage?

  1. Bacteria on grass remains mostly dormant.
  2. By using high quality, low oxygen permeating films and sealing air tight, you starve the bacteria of oxygen.
  3. By starving bacteria of oxygen, you help to create the anabolic activity. (essentially the bacteria wakes up and begins to multiply)
  4. The bacteria produces lactic acid which brings down the acidity.
  5. It is this process that preserves the grass.
