The difference between Toptex Blue Cover and bale wraps in agriculture
- There is
a big difference in quality
between Toptex and other brands on the market.
- Toptex Blue Cover is a superior type of fabric compared to other agricultural fabrics, specially designed for the demanding boating life.
- Blue Cover offers higher UV resistance than other agricultural fabrics.
- Toptex Blue Cover has 30% higher abrasion resistance than Toptex bale cover, which in turn has 30% higher abrasion resistance than other cloths.
- Other brands of cloths quickly show obvious mold and moisture damage.
- Boats have sharper edges compared to agricultural bales, which requires more durable materials.
- Blue Cover has a special manufacturing method that prevents weathering and prevents harmful spread.
For obvious reasons, there are many questions on the new tarpaulin for boating: Toptex Blue Cover. Many of the thoughts are of exactly the same nature as on the agricultural side, where Toptex bale covering cloth was launched some ten years ago, with the high demands for mold-free and moisture-free that prevail there.
Toptex Blue Cover is a refinement of Toptex Bale Covering Cloth for agriculture. There is a difference between the boat-adapted blue Toptex Blue Cover and the green Toptex Bale Covering Cloth for agriculture. And it is A big difference in quality compared to other brands on the market. It’s not just a matter of colour; Blue Cover was developed to further raise the bar on quality for the demanding boating life.
Below are pictures of brands other than Toptex and the consequences it has had in agriculture. They show extensive mold and moisture infestation, and we doubt that any boat owner would be willing to accept such a result of winter storage for their boat.
Toptex Blue Cover is a further development of Toptex bale covering cloth with even higher UV
resistance and an additional 30% higher abrasion resistance
than agricultural Toptex (which is already 30% stronger than other brands). If we analyze Blue Cover and other currently existing agricultural fabrics, the following is found:
After a few months in rough weather with moisture, snow and wind, several models of other bale covering fabrics are crumbling and becoming weaker… and weaker. It becomes fairly quickly damage/holes that just get bigger and bigger and then we think of the boats’ slightly sharper edges (unlike the agricultural bales’ soft shapes). Blue Cover is a completely different type of manufacturing with “bonding” to get all the fibers to work together and counteract weathering with damage that spreads. For those who try: make a small hole 10cm from the edge of the Blue Cover, put a finger in and start pulling and tearing as hard as you can, you have now met your match!
In summary, Toptex Blue Cover offers significantly higher quality and durability than other agricultural fabrics and has
been developed specifically for demanding boating
UV resistance and abrasion resistance
As well as a special manufacturing method that prevents weathering and damage-causing spread, it is an obvious choice for boat owners looking for reliable protection for their boats. Finally, our recommendation is not to buy a bale covering cloth to cover your boat as you are guaranteed to get both mold and moisture damage. In addition, a cloth that will not last anywhere near as long as Toptex Blue Cover.
The picture below shows damage from 7 months of storage of bales with other cloth on the market. Heavy mold damage. Big losses.
There has even been fungal formation
Below is a stack of bales after 7 months of storage in the rain and bad weather with Toptex. Extremely dry and nice.
