Plastic straps offer you many different priorities over metal alternatives, as the products made of polyester have a wide distribution and application. Polyester straps are cheaper and more affordable, reducing your costs for packing. It is important to note that a lower price does not mean a compromise in quality.
The polyester plastic strap is almost as strong as the steel ones, but it is significantly more flexible and easy to handle. Especially in the case of extreme loads. Polyester straps are very resistant to external weather conditions, even with prolonged exposure to sunlight. And the versatility of polyester non-metallic straps allows them to be used with both hand tools and automated packaging systems.
Plastic polypropylene strap

Plastic textile strap

Its technological characteristics for shrinking and losing allow the plastic textile strapping to cope perfectly in shocking situations and impacts, without the risk of tearing or breaking the integrity. Just like the other non-metal straps, these do not rust and can be exposed to various weather conditions. This type of plastic strap is suitable for handling and strapping miscellaneous goods, as the strength depends mainly on the width of the plastic strap.
