Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Strapping Tools And Parts

Poly Strapping

Polyester strapping and polypropylene strapping (jointly referred to as poly strapping or plastic strapping) are the two most widely used types of strapping. While steel strapping was the industry leader for many years, poly strapping of both varieties has largely taken over, primarily due to its cost-effective nature and added safety. Polypropylene and polyester strapping both offer impressive capabilities with their own unique advantages. Generally intended for light to medium applications, polypropylene strapping comes in many different sizes and polymer variations. It is fully recyclable and can be put in place manually, through the use of power tools, or with automated machinery. On the other end of the plastic spectrum is polyester strapping. This variety is ideal for heavyweight duties and is an excellent replacement for those who want to move away from steel. It is durable, rigid, and very strong, making it a great choice for irregularly shaped loads and pallets. Polyester strapping cannot be applied by hand, but power tools and automatic equipment easily do the trick.

Steel Strapping

Steel strapping is the strongest material on the market. If you need the highest strength you can get and low elongation, then steel will likely work best for your application. It's also well-suited to loads with very sharp edges and angles or products that can get incredibly hot. Beyond these, steel strapping offers the highest retained tension, break strength, and working range tension, as well as high humidity resistance. While steel strapping comes with an immense array of advantages, its important to keep a few of its downsides in mind. It is more expensive than all types of plastic strapping and less safefor workers, especiallyduring the removal process.
