Perfection in only four layers

A combination of modern manufacturing techniques and quality raw materials including high-carbon resins has given Volac Topwrap the strength and protection necessary for big bale silage wrapping. For high dry matter (greater than 40%) round bales, all square bales and heavy chopped bales, six layers are recommended. The number of bales per roll of film varies according to the size of the bale, the temperature of the film and how much pre-stretch is used. The following table illustrates the Volac Topwrap required for standard 1.2m x 1.2m bales with the film stretched to 70%.

Calculated to the nearest whole number based on 24 rolls of 500mm, 40 rolls of 750mm per pallet

Volac Topwrap Eco-Green film

Bales image

Features and benefits

Variations in the surface temperature of a wrapped bale will affect the quality of the silage and the degree of spoilage. Higher temperatures encourage spoilage organisms such as yeasts, moulds and clostridia.

Research has shown that the colour of the film can significantly influence the surface temperature of the bale by up to 20°C. Higher temperatures increase the permeability of the film to air and the resulting combination of air and heat in the humid conditions inside the bale are ideal for the growth of spoilage organisms, which leads to the loss of valuable nutrients.

Spoilage Graph

Volac Topwrap Eco-Green film has been specifically designed to minimise temperature variations in all weathers, helping prevent proliferation of spoilage organisms all year round, making it ideal for all UK and Irish field conditions.
