Powertite

Film & Film bale wrapping systems have become more and more popular in recent years as contractors and farmers strive to create near perfect bales with as little waste as possible. Advantages include, a significantly better oxygen barrier; easy film removal; easier recycling; less waste; and enhanced silage quality.

We have been producing Powertite 1.38m x 1750m for many years now as a great alternative to standard Net Wrap. Our new Powertite 750mm x 2200 represents an evolution in our range to take advantage of the capabilities of newer balers.

Powertite is a barrel film that is made from a 7 layer technology.

As Powertite is made from the same material as Silage Wrap, no separation is required after use from your Silage Wrap. Both Silage Wrap and Powertite can be recycled together.

Why Powertite?

  • Better oxygen barrier.
  • Less waste. 50% reduction on DM losses (on an actual farm trial).
  • Easier film removal and recycling.
  • 10% denser bales.
  • 66% of the bale covered with 3 or 4 more layers of plastic.
