Customers today are experiencing the many cost saving advantages and performance benefits associated through the use of polyester strapping over other packaging alternatives.
Manufactured to the tightest industry tolerances, polyester strapping is AAR approved for use with brick and lumber. It has excellent retained tension properties which make it ideal for heavy duty loads that require good initial tension as well as retained tension which keeps the strap tight around the load even if the package settles and shrinks in size.
Since polyester strapping uses either a heat or friction seal to weld the strap, there is no need for metal seals. Further savings can be realized through the cost per foot and most importantly perhaps, invaluable savings through a reduction in damage to your products through the use of seals or staining.
Polyester's unique qualities make it one of the best strapping materials to use for securing any type of palletized or unitized load. Depending on the size of steel strapping currently being used, polyester strapping can provide up to a 25% savings in strapping costs. Polyester can eliminate the need for metal seals in certain applications which provides additional savings and reduces product damage that might occur through the use of other packaging alternatives.
- Proven Performance - Samuel Strapping Systems Research and Development efforts have led to the introduction of industrial strength polyester strapping, approved by the Association of American Railroads (AAR) for open top and closed rail car shipments of Brick, Lumber and other panel products.
- Ease of Disposal - Polyester strapping can be easily disposed of by rolling or bending. Also, it can be cut into small pieces with our HLC80 Strap Chopper and accumulated for recycling.
- Elongation Recovery - Polyester strapping provides approximately 2% elongation at normal work tension, which allows the materials to stretch. The strapping will recover this elongation however, keeping the strapping tight around the package even if the load settles and shrinks in size.
Moisture & UV Resistant Because it is plastic, it is moisture resistant and therefore unaffected by rusting that might occur with other packaging alternatives which may stain or affect the quality of your product before it gets to its destination. Our polyester strapping is also UV resistant to protect strapping from long periods of exposure to the sun. Order, Buy Polyester Strapping Supplies from Hughes.
