Are You Still Using Chain Straps? You Need to Start Using PET Straps

PET strap or PET Polyester Strap is manufactured from Polythene Terephthalate material. It is the best and environment-friendly substitute of steel or chain strap and is used with automatic or semi-automatic battery tools.

 

PET or polyester strapping is the strongest plastic strapping material compared to polypropylene strapping, with Omni-tuff’s strap being rated at a Break Strain of 722kg. PET straps have the highest initial tension that can be applied and retained over a more extended period compared to other plastic strapping materials. 

 

PET strapping is characterised by its very consistent tensile strength and very high elongation. These characteristics are the most decisive factors for safe and reliable method of strapping. Unlike steel or chain strapping, PET straps have high elongation that can absorb shocks and impacts during transportation and handling far better than chain or steel strapping.

 

The advantages of using polyester strapping give superior mechanical features:
  • Rating on par with steel
  • Breaking strength with more extended elongation and outstanding tension retaining capabilities.
  • No damage or contamination of packaging goods.
  • Corrosion and UV resistant.
  • High shock absorption during impacts while in transit.
  • Less pressure on edges of packages.
  • Very superior on single packages that are secured.
  • Strap tension remains tight in cases where the package may shrink during transportation or storage due to ‘memory’ of PET.
  • Secure and clean handling compared to chain or steel strapping.
  • Easily recyclable.

 

For your transportation or storage strapping needs, you need not look far. Omni-tuff has the best PET straps, strapping/sealing tools, and accessories.
