Why Choose Extruded Polyester Strapping? (PET)

Extruded Polyester Strapping, otherwise known as PET, is gaining a high reputation within many industries for its high strength and abilities it holds over other options. Whether it be for transporting goods, or simply for storing packages, Extruded Polyester Strapping is seen as an alternative to Steel Strapping. PET is showcasing an appeal which other strapping services one did, and continue to do, but at a much more reduced cost. Seen as the strongest form of plastic strapping, Extruded Polyester is capable of securing heavy-duty applications which require high strength and a speedy application.

Let’s take a look at why Extruded Polyester Strapping could be the right choice for your application?

Extruded Polyester Strapping is very safe to use. Benefitting both you and your goods, it does not have sharp edges and is soft and light to handle, refraining from cuts and bruises when applying strapping to your loads. PET is a much safer option, which I’m sure your fingers will be thankful for. The soft edges also remove the need for edge protectors, saving you some money in comparison to metal banding alternatives. When used for transporting goods, PET does not present a whiplash hazard to the user, ensuring that your goods will remain secure.

Extruded Polyester proves durability as one of its main strengths. It can defy all odds and hold up to 820kg of goods at once, which is the equivalent to the weight of a car. PET and steel may differ in appearance, but they hold the same properties, so you can place your trust in this Polyester Strapping. Extruded Polyester is the strongest form of plastic strapping available, being twice as strong as Polypropylene. It is capable of withstanding and retaining a much higher tension hold on rigid loads such as bricks, timber and textiles. The high breaking strain shows PET is suitable for heavy loads and long-term storage, making it a practical alternative.

As well as strength, Extruded Polyester Strapping has a number of properties which make it stand out. The elastic featured within this strapping means it can adapt to awkward shapes without the danger of losing any strength. The added elasticity remains intact throughout transit, proving that no matter how much movement or shrinkage there will be throughout the transportation journey, everything will stay secure. The elastic memory prevents indentation and stops your packages and pallets from being destroyed. PET also prevents edge damage and does not kink the edges, as it slips around the edges of the pack better with less friction, therefore providing better tension and holding force during transmit. Extruded Polyester also includes supply fibres within that ensure the strapping will not tarnish, damage or stain your packaging.

As strapping is profoundly used for transporting goods around the country, it is vital that you know and are sure of the material you may be about to use. PET can handle the many stresses that driving different loads around the country may bring. It is resistant to vibration ensuring that your goods will be held firmly in place throughout the journey. This form of plastic strapping is highly resistant to different weather conditions and UV (ultraviolet). Experiencing high levels of rain, wind or UV rays will not affect your load and you can continue your onwards journey – which is not unusual here in the UK as we can experience all 4 seasons in the one day.

Helpful to the environment, Extruded Polyester Strapping is 100% recyclable. Once you are finished using it, it can be correctly disposed of and safely recycled, unlike its metal banding alternatives, which are too tough to recycle. PET is highly suited to heavy-duty applications being frequently used within the furniture, timber and brick industries. PET can store 3 times more strapping on a coil than metal banding, meaning fewer coil changes mid application.

Overall, Extruded Polyester Strapping is a lightweight and flexible product which is easy to handle and will not rust or damage your packaging products.
