Each company is concerned about the safety of its goods during transportation. Strapping (also called banding) is used to fasten, hold, stabilize, or combine items for shipping and storage. Packaging strapping guarantees safe transportation of the goods to clients, maintaining its good condition/appearance and preventing damage.
Strapping for pallets is the most popular packaging option for large cargo shipping, due to its economy and reliability. The physical properties of this packaging material allow you to hold the load in place, despite the inevitable loading during transportation.
A wide range of strapping materials are used in transport industry, such as steel, polyester, polypropylene, woven cord, and composite cord. There are different band thicknesses and widths depending on the weight and properties of the load, as well as storage and transportation conditions.
When you decide to purchase the strapping material to secure your shipping, you should take into account its properties and characteristics. The characteristics that define banding are:
- Breaking strength – the force to be applied for breaking the strap.
- Working range tension – proper tension necessary to be applied to the strap.
- Retained tension – the ability for the strap to retain tension during shifting.
- Elongation recovery – the ability for a strap to remain in size.
Steel Strapping provides the strongest protection compared to other types of banding. The resistance of steel banding to cutting impacts from sharp objects is significantly superior among other similar materials.
Сord Strapping has high elasticity and is, in many cases, the best solution for packing heavy, bulky goods with complex geometries. Due to its high strength, cord strapping can be a good alternative to metal banding. The advantages include safety and ease of use, light weight, resistance to corrosion during storage.
Polyester (PET) Strapping is UV and rust resistant, saving you money. This type of banding is perfect for outdoor uses as it has medium-high holding strength and ensures minimal damage to the load.
Polypropylene (PP) Strapping is cheap and flexible packing material. Used for banding light-to-medium weight packages, such as corrugated boxes, newspapers, etc. Can wrap odd-shaped or irregular shapes.
Plastic Strapping (polyester and polypropylene) is the most common option in package banding and is used in many industries. The low cost of plastic straps makes it the most affordable packaging for commercial companies, for which the economic and versatility of packing materials is important. For example, in the retail industry, plastic strapping for boxes is the most commonly used solution for sending goods to clients.
