Plastic strapping is strong, lightweight and safe to use. Because of its excellent properties, plastic strapping can be used for a broad range of applications. It is very economical since it has more footage than a coils of steel strapping and therefore a lower cost per foot. It is also easier to handle. DixiePac offers three different products:
Polypropylene strapping is manufactured using the latest technological developments. It is produced against the highest standards to obtain consistent quality and a high degree of reliability. High strength, good elongation and excellent recovery are only a few characteristics of this strapping. It is an ideal choice for light and medium packaging needs. Polypropylene strapping machine meets all requirements of machine and manual applications.
Polyester (PET) strapping is tougher than Polypropylene. It most closely resembles steel strapping in its physical characteristics and performance. Polyester has the lowest elongation of all other non metallic strapping materials. It can absorb shock while retaining tension around a package. It is split resistant and less notch sensitive than other strapping. Being virtually unaffected by environmental factors, this product is an excellent alternative to steel.
