Vacuum- and Sidewall Films for Optimal Silo Coverage

Frankenthal (Germany), January 15, 2019 - Following the restructuration of its silage films portfolio in 2017, RKW has once again expanded its new Polydress®line: vacuum- and sidewall films are now produced in a new design. In the future, the company will offer the films produced at the Michelstadt site in the categories Polydress® Classic and Performance. The previous qualities will thus be completely replaced. The expanded portfolio's consistent design offers farmers significant added value in terms of work efficiency and silage quality, covering the full range from sustainability to cost-saving needs in agriculture.

With its uniform packaging and revised composition, the newly categorized vacuum and side wall films Polydress®SiloClassics and the vacuum films Polydress® SiloPro will complete the RKW Group's silage portfolio. Hence the system supplier for special film solutions complements its extensive range of silo films. "With the clear categorization of our Polydress® line, which now also applies to vacuum and sidewall films, we specifically address the different needs and requirements of our customers," explains Stefan Kwiatkista, Sales Director Agriculture "Thanks to the packaging's clear design and easily understandable pictograms and QR codes, we also offer retailers and end users a simplified orientation within our range of films and facilitate their purchase decisions."

Highest quality, maximum efficiency

RKW offers a broad portfolio of vacuum films in the Performance category: The transparent, blue and green Polydress®SiloPro 40 vacuum films with widths of six to twenty meters are available in lengths of 50, 200 and 400 meters and characterized by high mechanical tensile strength and tear resistance.

The Classic category will prospectively include the transparent vacuum film Polydress® SiloClassic 40 with black outer packaging, which is suitable for standard applications and provides for adequate protection. The Classic variant is also available with widths of six to twenty meters and running lengths of 50, 200 and 400 meters. The Classic category is complemented by the black side wall film Polydress® SiloClassics 120, which is two to six meters wide and has a running length of 50 meters.
