Strapping Characteristics
Associated Bag Company - Contact Us.
Each type of strapping has certain advantages over the other, depending on the application:

Polypropylene Strapping is economical, lightweight, and quick to apply. The embossed surface strengthens the strap dimensionally and allows for the use of inexpensive non-scored seals. The industry standard for bundling corrugated boxes, printed materials, and boxed foodstuffs, polypropylene strapping is also ideal for many other light to medium duty, bundling, unitizing, and palletizing applications.

Polyester Strapping offers the greatest strength, rigidity, and retained tension of all plastic strapping. Smooth, weatherproof polyester won't rust or stain products, is 80% lighter than steel strapping, and uses sturdy, scored seals. Great for heavier-duty applications like bundling lumber or building materials, and rigid palletizing.

Steel Strapping is the strongest of all strapping materials. Recommended when high strength and shock resistance are essential. Commonly used to bundle and palletize structural steel, building stone, and rail car shipments. Steel's strength and durability are ideal for dealing with heavy, sharp, or hot materials.
