Baling twines, or baling twine, is typically a fine-sized synthetic or sisal twine used primarily to bind straw or hay in bail applications. Typically, it is used for pruning horse hay and cutting back excess grain. It is often used to secure the corners of grain beds and hold up the tops of stalks, especially during the straw harvest season. As a pruning tool, it provides a firm, secure hold to upright stalks and branches so that they do not wilt or fall over. It is an ideal tool to use when harvesting clover, alfalfa or lettuces, and a wide variety of other plants.
The materials used in UNI PAK baling twine are primarily polypropylene fibres and synthetic resin, which can be dyed in various colours. The dye will adhere to the fibre regardless of the moisture content, and it will not degrade. The colour is generally white, green or even orange. In addition to being strong and durable, the polypropylene polymers are completely recyclable.
Polypropylene was originally developed for packaging and pharmaceuticals, but because it is strong, resilient and lightweight, it has been successfully used for baling twine and various other applications. One application where the material has had significant experience is for use in sisal fibres. Sisal fibres are extremely fine fibres with high tensile strength and are stronger than any other known fibre.
A popular application for baling twines is for nest building. In most cases, they are made from premium sisal fibres, but there are specialty breeders and suppliers who can use any fibre. A typical bale will contain approximately one hundred sixty-two threads. Since the number of threads is normally equal to the weight of the fibre, bales will be able to withstand a tremendous amount of weight.
Many people involved in the hay and nesting business will use the UNI PAK baling twine for their nests and help secure the nest before it is placed on the ground. Once the bales have been securely placed, the owner will add the top to the package and secure it with a string. The string is usually six to eight feet long, depending upon the diameter of the package. Many people will place a hayseed package in one package before placing the top on the bales.
When people purchase new bales of hay, they will sometimes reuse the baling twine to help cover weak areas. In addition, the baling twine can be useful in securing the package of hay after it has been turned into a bed. A UNI PAK baling twine can often be reused on both sides of a hay bale because the string used to hold the bale together can be cut off when it is time to transport it from one location to another.
