At this year's SIMA in Paris – being held from February 22–26, 2015 – RKW Group presents films and round bale net solutions for the agricultural industry.

Polydress® O2 Barrier 2IN1 is the combination of silage and a vacuum film with an oxygen barrier that is 6 to 10 times better.

For the round bale film, glue has been completely eliminated. This ensures a fault-free wrapping process.

The round bale net Rondotex® IM-PRESS 1.25 m has strengthened lateral threads that ensure improved durability and simplify the practical work in the fields.

For high crop yields and efficient work processes

Michelstadt, January 27, 2015 At the SIMA in Paris, RKW will once again present its entire range of expertise as a solution provider for agricultural films and nets. Highlights of the presentation at Booth 6D 121 are film innovations for the agricultural industry. These include the multiple award-winning Polydress® O2 Barrier 2IN1, a combination of silage and a vacuum film with up to 6 to 10-times improved oxygen barrier.

At the heart of this year's SIMA in Paris, the company will present silage films that are up to 20 meters wide, silage tubes, round bale nets, additional agricultural films as well as construction films, pond liners, and geomembranes.

The agricultural films manufactured by RKW, the leading manufacturer of plastic films and nonwovens, are largely used in diverse areas of the agricultural and horticultural industries. Examples are the use in the construction of reservoirs for the watering of cultures, in the creation of optimal growth environment in film greenhouses, or also in the reliable storage of the harvested feed in round bale nets and silage sites. They can withstand significant burdens, are tear-proof, and waterproof. One example is the trade fair highlight Polydress® O2 Barrier 2IN1, a combination of silage and a vacuum film with improved oxygen barrier. The film innovation has already been awarded multiple times.

Beyond this, RKW will also be presenting its Polydress® Round Bale Film. Not using a glue additive ensures a fault-free wrapping process. In addition to the well-known Rondotex® Evolution with a wrapping width of 1.23 – 1.30 meters, RKW also has a round bale net in its agricultural net portfolio with strengthened vertical threads: the Rondotex® IM-PRESS 1.25 meters. This ensures a greater tearing force and simplifies the practical field work in these major areas: Due to the wider net, the wide run characteristics improve. This increases the security of the edge coverage. Furthermore, the net in-feed is optimized in the round bale presses, which ensures that the nets can be separated more easily. With its working width of 1.25 meters and lengths ranging from 2,000–4,000 meters, Rondotex® IM-PRESS 1.25 m can be used with all presses that have a core in-feed of 1.26 m.

The RKW Group is specialized in name-brand products for the agriculture and horticulture industries as well as for engineering and hydraulic engineering applications.
