Any one have an idea on R value for super compressed export Bales.
Any info will be passed on ,
Although I should nominate Peter to join the list.
Is there a seconder out there, and then I will fill you in on his good works.

Subject: R value
As discussed these bales are very well compacted, the dimensions are 400x500x480 45kg or 400x500x240 22kg baled at less than 12% moisture and compressed at 5000 psi. If the bales were sitting on the 400 side, the straw runs horizontal. I inquired about lowering the pressure and he felt the integrity of the bale would be jeopardized, but more pressure can still be applied. I hope that is enough information to calculate a rough R value for both thickness', I look forward to hearing what you come up with. Thanks for helping me out with this, it's very much appreciated.
I have found old studies from around 2003 that calculate between R1.4-2.4 US measure / inch
This R1.4 – 2.4 relates to standard housing bales,
Export ones may equate to the R value for Timber??
