What is PET strap?
PET strap is a type of polyester strapping that is increasingly used in place of steel strapping in a variety of industries. It is more lightweight than steel, has high tensile strength and is pre-formed for easy use. It is most commonly used in industries such as food, beverage, corrugated, printing and paper converting.
Types of PET strapping rolls
The two main types of PET strapping rolls are:
- Coated PET roll- this is PET strapping with a plastic or a resin-coated surface. It offers superior protection for heavier loads and/or shipments with sharp edges.
- Uncoated PET roll- this type of PET strapping roll is not coated with plastic or resin and is ideal for lighter loads or those with more fragile contents.
Choosing the Right PET Strapping Roll for Your Business
When choosing the right PET strapping roll for your business’s needs, it is important to consider several factors, including:
- Load Weight and Type: The type of PET strapping material you choose must be capable of withstanding the weight of the load and any sharp-edged items within it. For heavier shipments, coated PET rolls offer superior protection.
- Durability: Look for PET strapping materials that are durable and designed to resist tearing and stretching. Coated PET provides additional protection against abrasion and flexing.
- Cost: PET strapping rolls come in a wide range of prices, so it is important to choose a material that meets your budget requirements without sacrificing quality.
- Ease of Use: The strapping material should be easy to use and have pre-formed loops for easy application.
Choosing the right PET strapping roll for your business’s needs is an important decision. It is important to consider factors such as the load weight and type, durability, cost and ease of use when making your selection to ensure you choose the right material for your needs.
