Woven Cord Polyester Strapping and Buckles
For years, heavy industry has accepted steel strapping as a necessary evil and has tolerated its potential liabilities as an unavoidable risk. Now modern manufacturing methods coupled with the dramatic increase in the cost of steel have encouraged many companies to seek an economical alternative to steel strapping. The latest generation of super tough, high tensile Polyester cord strap, eliminates the “hidden costs” of steel banding – such as damaged products, injury, downtime, workmen’s compensation, tooling and repair costs.
Woven polyester cord strapping provides the same performance as steel strap, at a fraction of the cost. Recent studies have shown, that with a yield per roll three times that of steel, some companies are saving up to 78% by converting to polyester strapping. Woven polyester cord strapping is as strong as steel but six times lighter. And with higher elongation and shock absorbance properties, will not lose its tension if the load contracts or expands. The standard 16mm strap width will provide a breaking strain of around 600kgs and is ideal for many heavy duty applications.
Has no sharp edges to damage your products or forklift tyres
Can be used on heavier loads traditionally strapped with steel
Does not spring back like steel banding
Has as a very high capacity to absorb shocks during transport
Is non-toxic and will not corrode, rust or stain
Retains its initial tension ensuring stability of loaded pallets
Heavy-grade polyester cord strapping is stronger than light grade steel strap
Is cheaper with up to 3 times more strapping per roll than steel
Zinc Plated Phosphated steel buckles are recommended for use with strap widths of 16mm and above
