PP Strapping is used in medium and low strength applications. It can be applied manually or with semi-automatic or fully automatic strapping machines
It can be used manually with wire buckles, plastic buckles or seals. However, due to very low system breaking strength, it is recommended to be used only with loads that have a maximum pallet weight of no more than 250kg. Otherwise, cargo can be damaged during transport.
Resistance to climate conditions and sunlight is weak. It is preferably and mostly used with automatic and semi-automatic machines. When used with such application methods, parcel packages and light pallets can be strapped very fast and economically.
Depending on the quality there are two types of PP Strapping being produced: Original and First Quality. The Original strap have higher breaking strength than the First Quality type. It can also be used in fully automatic machines without any problems. First Quality strap is mostly used with plastic buckles – seals and manual strapping tools in lighter applications.
PP strapping has high elongation but low breaking strength compared to other types of strapping. Due to its ease of use and its affordability it is the most commonly used type of strapping for lightweight products around the world.
