Grain Bags

  • Mechanical resistance: e.g. Perforation resistance
  • Thermal resistance
  • Good stretching
  • Internal temperature stability
  • Impermeability
  • Reflection of solar rays
  • Filtration of ultraviolet rays
  • Durability
  • Flexibility
  • Softness
  • Internal opacity to block out the sunlight

Grain bags are manufactured from polyethylene through a three or five-layer co-extrusion process, each layer with different and specific properties. These layers are melted, thus producing a single uniform film, inseparable and with great resistance. The polyethylene is 100% virgin resin, to ensure quality and consistency throughout the film. Additives such as titanium dioxide and UV stabilizers are added to the white (external) layer and a high concentration of carbon black is added to the black (internal) layer.

Advantages of storing in grain bags

  • A very low cost per tonne of stored grain.
  • It allows you to classify the stored grains regarding its quality and commercial identity (Quality Assurance Control).
  • The capacity of the storage facilities is remarkably increased.
  • It enables you to increase the operative capacity of harvesting.
  • Easy sampling of grains stored by means of a conventional sampler.
  • High-priced freights during harvest season can be avoided.
