PET Straps can be used on loads requiring high, medium and low strength applications. They can be applied manually (with buckle) or with semi automatic (pneumatic or battery) strapping tools or fully automatic pallet strapping lines.
Being resistant to severe weather conditions, it shows long-lasting durability against adverse weather conditions (hot/cold/humid.) However, when exposed to sunlight, it loses its mechanical properties. For this reason, it should be stored in proper conditions and never be exposed to sunlight. Sunlight negatively affects mechanical properties of PET Straps in a very short time.
When PET straps are used with semi automatic or with fully automatic machines, it is very safe against impacts during transportation. However, used with wire buckles and seals, system breaking strength becomes very low and therefore this is technically not a suggested method of application as the cargo may be damaged during transportation.
PET strap due to its strength and elastic properties can be an alternative to steel strap in some applications. When used for packaging of the metal products it does not corrode when in contact with the product, it does not harm the product and it is suitable to use in terms of work safety. PET Straps are the preferred cost-effective choice for low to medium weight pallet strapping.
There are two types of PET Strapping: with smooth and with embossed surface. Smooth straps have higher breaking strength and stiffness than embossed straps. In addition, joint’s strength of smooth PET straps is higher than joint’s strength of embossed PET straps.
It is one of the most widely used straps in the world and in our country. Offers the advantage of being completely recyclable. Has higher breaking strength compared to the PP. However the corded straps have higher breaking strength values than the PET.
TARGET INDUSTRIES AND APPLICATION AREAS
Usually used in fully automated conveyor belt systems, it offers the advantage of being swift and safe.
That is why it is widely used in:
- Ceramic industry,
- Wood-chipboard production,
- Lock cobblestones,
- Concrete for the construction industry,
- Predominantly preferred in the food industry
In addition to these areas, PET strapping is preferably used manually in other industries due to non-standard pallet measurements:
- Marble and granite production,
- Metal industry,
- Durable goods,
- Automotive spare parts
All products under CO-STRAP trade mark have their quality control tests regularly performed and are in accordance with international quality norms and standards. Our customers all over the world use our straps safely.
Our products provide very high breaking strength values (equivalent to 90% of steel strapping’s system breaking strength).
