Silage films are used as most conventional conservation means.

The fodder is silaged and covered with a film. In this way the best possible conservation of the fodder during winter is guaranteed. This is a very easy method as no special machinery is required to install the silage cover.

Silage films are available in different sizes, widths and colours, depending on the specific needs of each market. All silage films consist of 3 layers (co-extrusion technique).

Next to the conventional silage films in 150 µm and 200 µm, RKW Hyplast managed to develop thinner and stronger films with newer raw materials (mLLDPE) and the newest production techniques.

Colours: transparent, white, black, black/white, green/black, green/white

Maximum width: 20 m

A silobag is a flexible tube, made of high-grade raw materials. It can be closed hermetically and, as a result, the nutritional juices, being present in the silage, cannot leak away. RKW Hyplast was one of the first producers of silobags.

A very high quality film, Hytibag, has been developed, enabling to store forage or grain (manipulated or not) for long-time conservation using special bagging-machines. RKW Hyplast has strong partnerships with producers of bagging-machines and is able to produce a silobag for every machine and application. Hyplast silobags meet the severest market requirements and are perfectly suited for many applications like: composting, conservation of juicy products or loose dry products, fertilizers and others.

Hytibat is used as cover film on stables or houses (e.g. for breeding chickens). The stable is usually built as a frame covered with film. For this application, a double layer film is used with an insulating layer in between.
