The netwrap alternative

Baletite is an innovative 5 layer pre-orientated film that replaces traditional netwrap in round silage bales.  Specifically created for the next generation of baling machines that can apply film instead of net, such as the McHale Fusion 3 Plus, Krone Comprima and Orkel hiQ, Baletite has been designed to enhance the ensiling process and protect the bale contents.

Being a film, Baletite provides an additional air barrier whilst helping to retain a better bale shape by exerting a tighter grip around the bale circumference.  Plus, it reduces wastage of valuable silage wrap, as, unlike netwrap, no baled fodder can become enmeshed in it.

Its production from the same base material as balewrap means users don’t have to separate the Baletite from balewrap after use.  Instead, both Baletite and the accompanying balewrap can be recycled together thereby saving valuable time and labour costs.

Superior oxygen barrier

Baletite bales benefit from an enhanced ensiling process resulting in better crop conservation thanks to the increased oxygen barrier afforded by the extra film layers around the bale circumference.

Exceptional puncture resistance

As a pre-orientated film manufactured using modern 5 layer blown film extruders, Baletite offers exceptional puncture resistance even with tough, stemmy forage crops.

Additional bale edge protection

Baletite’s ability to cover the bale from edge to edge offers additional protection around the edge of the bale - especially useful when baling stalky crops.

Optimal cling capacity

Baletite exerts a tight grip around the bale circumference to compress content and expel oxygen faster.

More compact, denser bales

Due to the high tightening force, Baletite creates tighter, more compact bales that benefit from a more rounded shape.

Smooth film surface

Baletite is easier to remove as no fodder can become enmeshed as with netwrap.  Bales can be unwrapped quickly and easily.

Unique sleeve packaging

In addition to being 100% recyclable Baletite’s sleeve packaging offers reel protection during transit and loading in addition to providing product information and usage instructions.

Easier to recycle

Baletite is 100% recyclable and its production from the same base material as balewrap mean that there is no need to separate and segregate these films for recycling as they can be recycled together.

Baletite is manufactured in ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 accredited manufacturing facilities.

Each reel is individually labelled to ensure 100% traceability in the unlikely event of a problem.

Baletite is recommended for use on grass silage, maize and sugar beet. It is not recommeded for straw or hay, given the limited UV stability.
