7 Layers are a Further Technological Advance

Published


The Visqueen silage sheet range from RPC bpi agriculture has underlined its market leadership and ongoing innovation with the introduction of 7 Layer Technology silage sheets.

The recent launch follows a £4m investment in the company’s UK manufacturing infrastructure and represents a further technological advance over Visqueen’s 5 Layer Technology films that have set the performance benchmark in the industry for the past decade.

The 7 Layer blown co-extrusion manufacturing process maximises the individual performance characteristics of the silage sheet. Like its 5 layer predecessor, all the layers are brought together to form one uniquely strong yet versatile and lightweight film structure. However, with seven layers to choose from, additives and other raw materials can be inserted with greater precision during the manufacturing process to create dedicated film layers for performance characteristics such as UV protection, puncture resistance, tear resistance and strength.

Such technically advanced manufacturing processes ensure that all the mechanical aspects of the film are maximised resulting in a reliable, stable, high performing silage sheet.

Being lighter, Visqueen silage sheets are easier to handle and apply to silage clamps of all sizes. The advanced manufacturing techniques also enable smoother gauge control that delivers a consistent film thickness across the whole sheet. This provides an enhanced oxygen barrier and a more consistent level of protection across the clamp surface.

The durable Visqueen silage sheet range is strong enough to withstand the rigours of the tough farm working environment where its robust impact features help to prevent tears and splits occurring during the clamp sheeting process.
