Silostop Black Ultimate Oxygen Barrier Film is recognised worldwide as the leading Oxygen Barrier film for delivering optimum silage quality.
Silostop Black is thin, light and very strong, making it easy to handle and apply. Its unique oxygen barrier properties are proven to be over 100 x more effective than conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic, and it stops even more oxygen when compared with clear "clingfilm" type products.
Typically users save between $0.75 to $4 per ton (£0.50 to £3.50 / €1 to €4.50 per tonne) of silage by covering with Silostop instead of conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic.
Surface spoilage is virtually eliminated, saving you money on labour to remove waste silage.
Dry matter loss in the top 3 feet (1m) of silage is reduced by up to 50% compared with conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic.
Aerobic stability is increased by up to two and a half days, so silage on the feedout face and in front of the cows stays fresh and nutrient rich longer.
Despite being considerably thinner than conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic, Silostop is strong, durable and safe to walk on without the risk of tearing.
Silostop films are thinner and less bulky than conventional plastics and are therefore cheaper to recycle or dispose of.
All Silostop facts are backed up by years of published research.
Silostop Black must be protected from physical damage with a second layer (e.g using Silostop Open Net, Anti-UV Cover or regular silage covers).
