PET Polyester Strapping - Did you know?


That cost considerations are not the only reason to move from steel to plastic PET strapping? Polyester strapping holds certain loads together better than steel. Just apply it with enough tension, and if the load settles, polyester will shrink with the load. When steel bands appear to be loose on pallets, it’s likely because the load has settled. Polyester strapping solves this problem.
