Textile strapping:

In strapping methods textile straps are a real alternative to usual plastic straps made of PP or PET as well as to steel straps.

They distinguish thermselves by a high weather and UV resistance. Its handling is easy and secure. Furthermore the closing of the strap allows with the help of galvanized buckles (for corded or composite strap) or phosphated buckles (for woven strap) a retightening at any time.

A high-quality tensioner should be used to get an optimum pretension of the strap and thereby achieve best securing of the good. Only thus the positive potentials of the straps can be used adequate.

There are three types of textile straps:

a) Corded strap / hot melt strap

The strap is composed of glued polyester threads lying side by side. Due to its high elasticity it is versatile applicable, even at wide range of temperature.

b) Composite strap

The single parallel lying polyester threads of this strap are protected by a plastic coating made of polyethylene and polypropylene. In particular this offers protection against sharper edges and also chemicals like acids and leaches.

c) Woven strap

This strap is composed of lengthwise and crosswise woven polyester fibres. It is extremely tear-proof and does not split, hence it is optimal for securing heaviest goods on load carriers, in boxes, in containers and such like.
