Polypropylene Strapping is the most commonly used and least expensive of all strapping materials. It's light and easy to apply and recycle. These Hand Grade Strapping, Machine Grade Strapping, and Signode Comparable Strapping are perfect for bundling, packaging, sealing, or securing your products, boxes, or objects. Poly strapping is available in both hand grade and machine grade and can be sealed with buckles, seals, heat seals, or with a friction weld strapping tool. Use poly strapping for light-duty palletizing, unitizing, carton closing, and bundling. It is used in all semi-automatic strappers and nearly all stand alone arch machines. We also offer Steel Strapping and Polyester Strapping.

Types of Strapping

Steel Strapping

  • The strongest of all strapping
  • Characteristics: Low elongation • High strength retention
  • Seal: Mechanical seals • notch joint seals
  • Applications: For use with sharp objects like pallets of brick, where low flexibility is desired. Also, use in applications with extreme heat.


Polypropylene Strapping

  • The most commonly used and least expensive strapping
  • Characteristics: Lightweight • High elongation • Low retained tension • Easy to apply by hand or by machine • Easy to dispose • Recyclable
  • Seal: Buckles • seals • heat seals or welds
  • Applications: Light palletizing • bundling • carton closing


Polyester Strapping (PET)

  • The most rigid of all strapping that replaces steel strapping
  • Characteristics: Most rigid • Less elongation than Polypropylene • Long retained tension • Easy to apply by hand or by machine • Easy to recycle
  • Seal: Buckles, seals, heat seals, or welds
  • Applications: Use on heavy-duty loads where high tension and strength is needed; Heavy and rigid pallet loads, replacement of steel strapping
