All About the PET Polyester Strapping


What is PET Polyester Strapping?

PET Polyester Strapping is known as polyethylene terephthalate strapping. It is a plastic strapping material to secure and bundle goods during transportation and packaging. It is made from polyester resin, which is a strong and durable material.

How does a PET Polyester Strapping work?

PET Polyester Strapping provides a secure and tight hold on packages or products. It ensures that the goods stay in place during transportation or storage. Let us see how the strapping is done:

  • To start with, we ensure that the items to be secured are arranged and positioned.
  • The PET Polyester Strapping roll is fed wound around the items to be secured. The strapping is typically wrapped tightly around the load multiple times to ensure a secure hold.
  • Once the strapping is wrapped around the load, apply Tension to ensure it is tight and secure. This can be done using a strapping tool or machine designed for PET Polyester Strapping. The tool applies Tension to the strapping, removing any slack and ensuring a snug fit.
  • After applying Tension, seal the PET Polyester Strapping to maintain its hold. There are different methods of sealing, depending on the specific strapping tool or machine being used. The most common methods include heat sealing or friction sealing.
  • Once the strapping is sealed, the excess strapping length is cut with a strapping cutter or a sharp knife. A quality check ensures the strapping is properly tensioned and secured.

Benefits of PET Polyester Strapping:

  • Strength and Durability: PET Polyester Strapping offers excellent tensile strength. It best for heavy loads and provides secure packaging.
  • High Retention: It maintains Tension over time. This prevents the load from shifting or becoming loose during transit.
  • Resistant to Rust and Corrosion: Unlike metal strapping, PET Polyester Strapping is not susceptible to rust or corrosion, making it suitable for outdoor and humid environments.
  • Safety: PET Polyester Strapping is safer to handle than steel strapping, as it is less likely to cause injuries due to sharp edges or snapping.
  • Cost-effective: PET Polyester Strapping is generally more affordable than steel strapping.

Factors to Consider Before Selecting PET Polyester Strapping:

  • Load Weight and Size: You need to consider the weight and dimensions of the loads you need to secure to ensure the strapping’s strength is adequate.
  • Transportation Conditions: You need to evaluate the environmental conditions during transportation, such as temperature, humidity, or exposure to UV light, to choose strapping with appropriate resistance properties.
  • Strapping Tools and Equipment: Check compatibility with your existing strapping tools and machinery to ensure seamless integration.
  • Industry Requirements: Different industries may have specific regulations or requirements for packaging and securing goods. You need to ensure the chosen strapping complies with the necessary standards.
