A bale wrap is an agricultural implement mainly used to wrap bales wrapped in tar paper to become tarpaulin. The wrapping shape is like a cylinder, and the product is shaped like a cylinder with a flat bottom and a flat top. The tar paper is cut into strips, and the strips are connected and tied with string. The tar paper is then folded into a cylindrical shape and tied.
This wrapping is mainly used to store and ship agricultural products, though it has other uses also. A bale wrap has a wide variety of uses, and it can be customized as per the requirements. Bales, which are flat, cylindrical and round, are wrapped using this technique. It can also be called inline wrapping, curved wrapping or barrel wrapping.
It is the most commonly used wrapping technique, and it is used both for small bales and huge ones. There are two types of bale wraps available. The flat wrap is available in two types of sizes, i.e. Flat Rate Mil or Flat Rate Multi-Layer. The Flat Rate Mil is available in different sizes, and they are priced according to the sizes.
The second type of bale wrap is known as the Multi-Layer. It is mainly used in the states where there is a need to store large amounts of stock. They are available in different sizes, and the price is also different. The multi-layers are also available in different colours. The names of the colours are mentioned along with the dimensions. If the dimensions of the bales are not mentioned, then the suggested colour should be the same as that of the product.
The flat rate bale wrap is the cheapest of all the different techniques of wrapping bales. It is made up of strips of paper fitted together and secured by a rubber or metal band. This type of bale wrap is available in two kinds, i.e. flat rate flat and premium grade flat rate. The premium-grade bales are superior strength, but they cost more than the flat rate ones.
These are called the tumble wrap or tumble bales. They are made up of a cylindrical shape, and they come in various sizes. The cylindrical shape is created due to the cross-sectional area of the wrap. Due to this design, there are fewer chances of wetting the paper or loose ends. There are more advantages of tumble wrap than other techniques of bale wrap, and they are preferred for their superior strength and low moisture absorption.
