Plastic Banding

Plastic Banding

Plastic banding is a high tensile strength banding material that is used in a wide variety of packaging applications including carton closing, bundling, plastic tote security, and tying together unitizing both palletized and unpalletized materials for in-plant transfer and shipment.

When to use Polypropylene Strapping

  • Light weight pallet loads.
  • Light weight bundling.
  • Package reinforcement.

Polypropylene Plastic Strapping

Polypropylene plastic strapping is the most commonly used and least expensive of all strapping materials. It’s light and easy to apply and recycle. Characteristics include high elongation and elongation recovery, but low retained tension.

Polypropylene plastic straps are an excellent choice for light duty palletizing, unitizing, carton closing, and bundling. It is used in all semi-automatic strappers and nearly all stand alone arch machines.

Polypropylene is available in both manual and machine grade and can be sealed with buckles, seals, heat seals, or friction welds.

Polypropylene plastic strapping is designed for light to medium duty materials, palletizing and bundling.

Polypropylene strapping is the most economical for strapping and banding.

Polyester Banding

Polyester is the most rigid of all strapping materials. It elongates significantly less than polypropylene and retains tension over a longer period. Polyester is nick resistant and can be sealed with seals, heat, or friction welds.

Because polyester offers the greatest strength and highest retained tension of all plastic strapping, it is frequently used on heavy-duty loads that need high initial tension along with high retained tension during handling and storage.

Polyester is the strongest plastic strapping product. Polyester provides excellent retained tension on rigid loads.

When to Use Polyester Strapping

  • Light to Medium weight pallet loads.
  • Non-compressible materials.
