POLYPROPYLENE and polyester are the two basic types of plastic strapping available from Strap & Wrap .
They offer both types in a range of gauges and qualities for use in both hand tools and high production power strapping machines.
Polyproylene is a low cost, low strength strap typically applied to cartons (such as corrugated cardboard carrying meat and fish).
It is available in widths of 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 16mm and 19mm, as well as a selection of gauges and finishes to match specific application requirements.
Polyester is a high strength plastic strap typically applied, by pneumatic hand tools and powered strapping machines, to expanding and shrinking loads (for example it is used to strap bricks and treated timber in the recycling and corrugated industries).
It is available in widths of 9mm, 12mm, 16mm and 19mm, as well as a selection of gauges and finishes to match specific applications.
