Woven Polyester Cord Strapping EquipmentFor 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.Cord strapping has no sharp edges to damage your products or forklift tyresCord strapping can be used on heavier loads traditionally strapped with steelNo sharp edges and polyester does not spring back like steel bandingPolyester cord strap has a very high capacity to absorb shocks during transportPolyester cord strap is non-toxic and will not corrode, rust or stainCord strapping retains its initial tension ensuring stability of loaded palletsHeavy-grade polyester cord strapping is stronger than light grade steel strapPET cord is cheaper with up to 3 times more strapping per roll than steel
