The initial tensile strength of the bale netting fabric is maximized. But after a while, under the influence of UV rays and other environmental factors, as well as due to the “load” from winding and holding the bale, this indicator decreases. When used correctly in temperate climates, the bale net will retain 50% strength after 12 months.
A decrease in the strength of the bale net can occur due to the high pressure of the packed crop. For example, straw is more “explosive” than hay, which we have already covered in another article. Therefore, it is very important to follow the recommendations for the number of net layers on the bale. In addition, in areas with high UV radiation, it is better to cover bales for long-term storage to reduce environmental impact.
The Polipak net contains a UV stabilizer. This ensures that at least 50% of the original tensile strength is retained after 12 months of outdoor storage.
To keep your bales strong and hold the feed securely for as long as possible, we recommend:
