Silage Sheet & Stretch

conserving animal feed the right way

Lumicene Supertough®– the ideal booster of recycled PE for Silage sheet

Silage sheets need to provide the right environment to the protected foodstuff in order to ensure the correct fermentation process and conservation. This results in optimized mechanical and barrier properties.

Due to the quest for resource efficiency, a  silage sheet often contains a high amount of recycled product.  Since Total Lumicene Supertough® have superior mechanical properties, it is used either as a recycling booster or  to downgauge film.

With its excellent melt strength, Lumicene Supertough®  is the ideal partner to extrude  large silage sheets  on a blown film line.

 

Lumicene® & EVA  – For thin but better silage stretch

Silage stretch needs to protect the foodstuff in order to ensure the correct fermentation process and conservation of the bales. This results in demanding requirements for mechanical properties and barrier properties.

Since Total Lumicene® combines good mechanical properties with the requested drawability, you will get an optimal performance of the silage stretch.  

Our EVA range with a wide range of vinyl acetate percentages can help you achieve the right cling effect around the bales. With the suitable rheology of one of our EVA products, you are sure of the correct drawability and bubble stability on large extrusion lines. 

Thanks to the combination of our Lumicene®  and our EVA, we provide to the agricultural market a Total solution for silage stretch.
