More detailed description of Silostop® Ultimate Oyxgen Barrier Orange and Black Films, with benefits, features and product sizes available.

Silostop® Orange Oxygen Barrier Film

Silostop Orange® Ultimate Oxygen Barrier Film is recognised worldwide as the leading Oxygen Barrier film for delivering optimum silage quality.

Silostop® Orange is thin, light and very strong, making it easy to handle and apply. Its unique oxygen barrier properties are proven to be over 100x more effective than conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic and it stops even more oxygen when compared with clear "clingfilm" type products.

Why Silostop® Orange?

  • 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 to conventional black / white-on-black PE plastic.
  • Aerobic stability is increased by up to two and a half days, so silage on the 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® Orange must be protected from sunlight with a second layer that provides UV light protection.
