Strapping is the process of securing items or products to prevent them from shifting or moving during transportation. This is done by wrapping a durable material around the item and tightening it to keep it in place. Strapping is a common method used in various industries, including manufacturing, shipping, and warehousing.
There are different types of strapping materials available including Steel, Polyester Strapping (Composite and PET Strapping), and Polypropylene Strapping. Each material has its own strengths and weaknesses, and the type of strapping used depends on the application and the weight of the item being secured.
Steel strapping is a popular choice for heavy-duty applications. It is strong and durable, making it ideal for securing large and heavy items, such as machinery and equipment. If you are looking for a strong and reliable strapping solution, our 19.0mm x 0.80mm High Tensile Steel Strapping is the perfect choice! Made from high-quality steel, this strapping material is incredibly durable and can withstand even the toughest of conditions. It's perfect for securing heavy loads and is ideal for use in the construction, manufacturing, and shipping industries. With its high tensile strength, steel strapping provides excellent resistance to breakage and helps ensure that your products arrive at their destination safely and securely.
Composite strapping is a newer type of strapping material that is gaining popularity in the shipping and manufacturing industries. It is strong and durable, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications. Composite strapping is also lightweight and easy to handle, making it a popular choice for smaller applications.
Need more information about our composite strapping? Look no further than our 19mm De Lama Composite Strapping. Composed of polyester cables in parallel and coated with PET. The strapping has a retraction capacity after tension of up to 4%. It’s safe to use while having the strength to deal with heavy loads where a steel strap has been used. It is also friendly to the environment. Manufactured in France and the whole range of strapping comes under recycled plastic coding.
Another safe and alternative strapping option is our 16mm Tenso Polyester PET Strapping. Suitable for use on loads requiring high, medium, and low strength applications, and due to its resistance to severe weather conditions (heat/cold/humidity), it provides long-lasting durability. It can be applied manually (with metal seal) or with semi-automatic (pneumatic or battery powered) strapping tools or used in fully automatic pallet strapping lines. PET strapping, due to its strength and elastic properties, can be used as an alternative to steel strapping in some applications. Also, pet straps are made from 100% recycled materials which are eco-friendly, sustainable, and effective for securing and packaging various goods.
