TamaWrap<span class='cotton_plus'></span><sup>®</sup> Yellow Premium for cotton

TamaWrap® Yellow Premium is an unseparated part of John Deere’s On-Board Module Builder Revolution which amazed the agricultural world when it was first launched back in 2009.

  • The on-board module technology replaces the traditional cotton harvesting system which includes basket harvester, boll buggy and module builder.
  • The entire picking process is carried out by ONE machine and ONE operator!
  • The innovative TamaWrap® Yellow Premium is specially designed to avoid the potential of plastic fragments and the risk of cotton contamination.
  • Assures reliable, automatic packaging for non-stop harvesting.
  • Helps to maintain the quality of cotton in round modules which are exposed to extreme conditions.
  • Helps to eliminate waste.

To ensure that plastic wrap material meets a minimum acceptable standard, the US cotton industry and USDA-ARS scientists worked with the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) to develop a standard for round module wrap: “Cotton Module Cover Material Performance”.

TamaWrap® Premium Yellow and/or Pink is Approved Round Module Wrap Product Meets ASABE S615.2 Feb 2022 Cotton Module Cover Material Performance Approved List Maintained by the National Cotton Council.

Each roll has its own ID number located inside the core, and on the leading edge of the first wrap.
Each TamaWrap® has a unique serial number, located on the metallic label of the wrap.

Installation Mark

Every core is marked on its left hand side by black dots on the core and a label inside the core, to assist correct installation

Z–LOCK® system

Tama’s unique Z-LOCK® system provides 4 major benefits:

  1. The Z-LOCK® system connects and separates each individual wrap on a roll, so the roll is made of 24 “ready to use” wraps.
  2. The Z-LOCK® system assures the next wrap is ready to be fed correctly.
  3. The tapered structure maximizes the durability of the tail in windy conditions.
  4. Two types of specially designed adhesive secure the tail of a wrapped module in tough conditions and minimize the risk of cotton contamination.
TamaWrap® Structure

Every TamaWrap® wrap is made of two segments:

  1. The inner layers are a non-tacky film with particular properties which prevent cotton from sticking to the wrap.
  2. The outer layers are a special formulated film which is tacky on one side only.

The combination of these two types of film ensures that the round module will hold its uniformity for transport and processing.
