Glossy coat protects those silage pits

BLACK Tection gives a hard, glossy finish to the walls of silage pits that resists silage adhesion and abrasion by machinery, claims manufacturer Total Bitumen Products.

It says the protective coating is applied easily by brush and dries to a hard, tough and flexible waterproof film. The special bitumen compound is a blend of refined bitumens, mineral fibres, asphaltic gums, solvents and moisture inhibiting non-drying oils.

Black Tection costs about £2/sq m (01942-713436).
