Lighter and strong, yet easy to use and cost-effective – the Siloform range has a lot to offer. Their innovative silage sheets are produced on the latest extrusion lines using superior raw materials to create highly effective film blends. These advanced manufacturing techniques deliver a consistent film thickness across the whole sheet – a feature that enhances the film’s oxygen barrier to provide a consistent level of protection across the crop surface.
Manufactured as a two-colour sheet with green on the upper face, the Siloform range of high performing silage sheets offer impressive resilience and hardiness – ideal for on-farm working conditions.
An incredibly tough and flexible film, SmartSeal adheres to the surface of the silage pile directly beneath the Premium white/black sheet. This prevents pockets of trapped air, significantly reducing aerobic spoilage.
Take your herd health to the highest levels by sealing the silage surface from damaging oxygen penetration. Ensure optimal anaerobic fermentation and a premium easy-to-digest and highly nutritious feed.
In independent laboratory tests, SmartSeal’s Oxygen Transmission Rating (OTR) was lower than competing brands of vapour barrier film, ensuring the lowest transmission rate of oxygen and aerobic fermentation that can spoil a significant amount of silage.
OTR ratings will vary from test to test based upon many factors, including whether air or pure oxygen was used for the test, as well as temperature and humidity. RPC BPI Agriculture SmartSeal OTR tests were conducted under static, consistent parameters to prevent rating variances.
Manufactured to rigorous production standards the pioneering Visqueen silage sheet range can create the ideal ensiling environment. Known for high strength, puncture resistance and an excellent seal, the Visqueen range benefits from the latest 5 and 7 layer blown co-extrusion technology. These technologies enable the most effective placement of raw materials so that they reach those parts of the film where they are most needed. This ensures the UV stabilisers are on the outside to face the weather with the inner layers bearing the high strength and puncture resistance elements of these exceptionally strong sheets.
Visqueen Clingseal – a thin, flexible, low permeability sheet that reduces top and shoulder spoilage – sits directly beneath the traditional silage sheet, where it closely ‘clings’ to the clamp surface. In doing so it prevents pockets of trapped air forming to significantly reduce aerobic spoilage. In addition to providing an additional air seal it creates the right anaerobic conditions to deliver enhanced silage quality. Visqueen Clingseal is especially beneficial when ensiling moist feeds like brewers’ grains and crimped maize – higher value crops that are more susceptible to wastage.
