What is Composite Strap & PET Straps?

Packaging and ensuring cargo security are crucial aspects of transportation industries. Two materials that have significantly revolutionized these industries are composite straps and PET straps. This article seeks to delve deeper into the properties, applications, and advantages of these materials.

Composite strap

Often regarded as ‘synthetic steel’, composite straps are the latest innovation in strapping technology. They are manufactured from high tenacity polyester fibres covered in a clear polypropylene coating. Available in a broad variety of strengths and widths, composite straps are perfect for robust applications, especially heavy goods and maritime shipping.

The polypropylene coating amplifies the strap’s resistance to abrasion and allows a slight elongation during transit, ensuring the cargo remains steadfast. They are revered for their high tensile strength, UV resistance, and tension retention ability. Due to the stiffness provided by their polypropylene casing, composite straps are easier to maneuver underneath pallets.

Applications of Composite Straps:

  • They are extensively used in securing heavy goods during transportation.
  • Providing stability to cargo in maritime shipping.
  • For bundling goods in warehouses to optimize space.

PET Straps

PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) straps are considered the most formidable plastic straps and are often used in applications requiring high tension during handling, storage and transport. These straps maintain high tension over prolonged periods and exhibit great stretch recovery, making them an ideal choice for heavy loads.

Along with Daywalk’s strap, which is rated for robust strain, PET straps are distinguished as the most rugged plastic strapping material as compared to polypropylene strapping. They are much safer and durable than steel straps and can retain tension longer because of their higher tensile strength.

Applications of PET Straps:

  • They are suitable for medium heavy and heavy goods strapping.
  • They provide stability to cargo during transit and storage.
  • Often used as an alternative to steel strapping in several applications.

In conclusion, both Composite Straps and PET straps offer a dependable solution for securing goods during transit or storage, replacing traditional steel and plastic straps. They are not only safer but also cost-effective, lightweight, and more flexible than traditional materials.

So, whether you’re in the manufacturing, shipping, or storage business, these innovative products could be the solution to your packaging needs.
