The Benefits of Switching to PET Strap

Are you still using traditional steel strapping for the transport or shipping of goods? Or perhaps you’re still using steel strapping to store away your spares or equipment in your warehouse? Maybe it’s time you switched to something safer and more efficient, such as PET or Polyester Strap.

 

PET or Polyester is a category of polymers that refers to a specific type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). You probably heard of PET as a synthetic fibre polymer in the making of plastic bottles and clothes. However, the PET or Polyester strap described here is a thermoplastic mono-filament type of textile used only for industrial strapping. When held, PET strap feels like plastic but is sturdier.

 

Polyester or PET strap is actually highly resistant to external damage and corrosion. It retains excellent tension when strapped down on any product during transport or shipping. PET strapping has superb anti-split properties. Compared to ordinary steel strapping that can come loose if shaken vigorously or something heavy falls on it, PET straps are incredibly efficient with a higher safety level for handling and storage, making it also very cost-effective.
