Strapping Application Guide

This guide is to help you determine what type of strapping you will need for your application. The three basic types of strapping are steel, polyester and polypropylene.


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.

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 are needed; Heavy and rigid pallet loads, replacement of steel strapping


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 of, Recyclable
  • Seal: Buckles, seals, heat seals, or welds
