Silage Film

Optimum Protection Thanks to High Tear Resistance.

When you choose a silage covering film, quality should be your primary concern, because only top-quality films guarantee high-quality forage. A good quality silage film reliably protects grass or corn silage against oxygen, bright sunlight, and mechanical loads.

Quality

By using a special production technique, CLAAS has been able to reduce the film thickness of CLAAS Silofolie Plus to 100µ while at the same time increasing both the tensile strength and the stretch of the film.

Strength and Adaptability

Conventional standard film requires a thickness of 150 - 200µ to ensure it does not tear. However, the thicker the film, the stiffer it is on the silage, and causes trapped air, which adversely affects the fermentation process. A special production technique has been used to reduce the film thickness of CLAAS SILOFOLIE PLUS to 100µ while at the same time increasing both the tensile strength and the stretch of the film.

Protection Against Excessive Warming

CLAAS SILOFOLIE PLUS has a black side and a white side. We recommend that you have the white side facing upwards, as the white side reflects the sunlight. Underneath a dark film, temperatures of 158 - 176° F (70-80 C°) are not unusual in the summer. When the film warms up, the gas permeability also increases hugely. This reduces the energy content of the forage, and thus ultimately the milk yield.

Comparison - Requirements DLG

A comparison with a standard film shows that CLAAS SILOFOLIE PLUS clearly exceeds the requirements of the German Agricultural Society (DLG):
