Strapping, also referred to as banding or bundling, is a technique used to secure and stabilize cargo during transport or storage. It involves wrapping a bundle or container with a sturdy and flexible material, typically made of plastic or metal, to prevent shifting or damage. Material, tensile strength, application, and load capacity vary among the various varieties of strapping and strapping accessories.


This variety of strapping is made from high-tensile steel and provides exceptional strength and durability. Strapping made from steel is suitable for heavy-duty applications and can withstand sharp edges and harsh handling. It is widely employed in industries such as construction, woodworking, and metalworking.


Polypropylene (PP) Strapping: PP strapping is manufactured from polypropylene, a lightweight plastic material. It is inexpensive, simple to manipulate, and can be sealed by heat, friction, or buckles. Common applications for PP strapping include bundling cartons, securing pallet loads, and shipping packages.


Polyester (PET) Strapping: PET strapping has a high tensile strength and exceptional tension retention. It is ultraviolet (UV) radiation resistant, making it suitable for outdoor use. Common applications for PET belting include the logistics, agricultural, and brick/block manufacturing industries.


Composite Strapping: Composite strapping consists of polyester filaments with a polymer coating. It possesses high tensile strength, excellent impact resistance, and minimal elongation. Composite strapping is frequently employed for securing large loads and is suited for applications requiring a high level of tension and protection.


Corded Strapping: Corded strapping is constructed from woven or braided polyester or nylon fibers. It offers superior tensile strength, flexibility, and elongation properties. Commonly, corded strapping is used to bundle and secure irregularly shaped cargoes.


In addition to the various types of strapping, distinct strapping accessories can improve the strapping process.


Strapping Seals: Seals are utilized to secure the strapping's extremities together. They can be made from metal or plastic and come in a variety of designs, including open seals, closed seals, and push-type seals.


Buckles: Buckles are utilized with certain types of strapping, such as PP strapping, to produce a secure connection. They are available in various forms, such as wire buckles and buckles with serrated metal.


Tools for Strapping: Strapping tools are utilized to tension, secure, and cut strapping material. For more efficient and quicker strapping operations, they can range from manual hand tools such as tensioners, sealers, and cutters to pneumatic or battery-powered tools.


Edge Protectors: Typically made of plastic or cardboard, edge protectors are used to protect the corners and edges of packaged products from damage caused by the tension of the strapping.


It is essential to consider the weight, dimensions, and environmental conditions of your shipment when selecting the appropriate lashing and accessories for secure and effective packaging.
