Polypropylene (PP) and Polyester (PET) strapping bands secure goods across diverse logistics, shipping, and warehousing industries. The bands are employed to ensure the safe and stable transportation of loads.
Polypropylene (PP) Strapping Band
Polypropylene (PP) strapping bands are manufactured from a thermoplastic polymer known as polypropylene. This material possesses several advantages, such as being lightweight, flexible, and cost-effective.
Available in various widths, thicknesses, and strengths, PP strapping bands are frequently employed in light to medium-duty applications that do not demand high tensile strength.
The strapping bands are easily manageable, exhibit good elongation properties, and withstand diverse weather conditions. They can be used for bundling packages, securing cartons, palletising goods, and reinforcing boxes.
Polyester (PET) strapping bands
Polyester (PET) strapping bands are crafted from a synthetic polymer renowned for its strength and durability. These bands are produced using polyester fibres and are accessible in various widths, thicknesses, and strengths.
PET bands demonstrate greater strength than PP strapping bands, which provide exceptional tensile strength and sustained tension. With low elongation characteristics, PET strapping bands exhibit minimal stretch under tension.
They can be used for heavy-duty applications necessitating high tensile strength and resistance to impact. PET strapping bands are well-suited for securely fastening heavy pallet loads, bricks, lumber, steel coils, and other weighty or sharp-edged objects.
