X-Pak strapping is renown in the Australian market for its introduction in the early 2010’s as the go-to alternative to steel strapping. It is also known as Cord Strapping, Composite Strapping or Fiber Strapping. 

Composite strapping is a type of cargo securing material made from a combination of high-tenacity polyester fibers and a polymer coating. It is designed to provide strong, durable, and flexible load restraint for various types of cargo.

Composite strapping is versatile and suitable for securing a wide range of cargo, including heavy machinery, wood, steel, and other goods. It is particularly effective for loads that may shift during transport.

Unlike traditional strapping materials such as steel or metal, composite strapping is lightweight, flexible, and less prone to causing damage to the cargo. It also offers a high level of shock absorption. Some advantages of composite strapping include its high tensile strength, resistance to weathering, minimal risk of damage to cargo, and ease of handling. It is also considered safer for users due to its low recoil.

Yes. It also has highest retained tension and superior shock absorbency in comparison to all non-metal strapping types on the market. As a general rule of thumb, if you’re using a 19mm steel strapping, the 19mm X-Pak strapping will be a suitable alternative.

Absolutely. Enhanced safety is a key advantage—our strapping eliminates sharp edges and hazardous straps flinging people when cut. Additionally, finding an alternative to steel strapping that matches its strength can be challenging, but our Cord Strapping boasts an equally high rating, ensuring efficiency without the need for doubling the strapping amount.

The X-Pak Strapping system is joined using a heavy duty galvanised buckle. Our strapping buckles are also galvanised to ensure they last in outdoor conditions.

The choice of width and thickness depends on the weight and size of the cargo. At X-Pak, we understand the importance of selecting the right solution for your specific needs. To assist you in making a decision, we offer free site visits and assessments to provide recommendations for your cargo. Our team of experts will visit your location, evaluate your product requirements, and provide personalised recommendations based on its weight, size, and unique characteristics.

While composite strapping can be tensioned by hand, using a tensioning tool is recommended for achieving the optimal tension and ensuring a secure load. Tensioning tools help apply the necessary force efficiently. We provide a full range of manual and automatic (battery and pneumatic) tooling to tension strapping. Along with the strap and buckles, plastic or cardboard edge protection may be required on sharper edges. Part of our range also includes rubber friction matting. 

Yes, composite strapping is designed to be weather-resistant and can be used for outdoor shipments. Its resistance to UV rays and moisture makes it suitable for various environmental conditions.

Composite strapping can be reusable depending on the specific conditions of its use and any damage it may incur. Regular inspection is necessary, and damaged strapping should be replaced to ensure cargo security.
Like most strapping, there are many composite strapping manufacturers in China, SE Asia and a few in Europe. There are no Australian manufacturers of cord or composite straps. We source our strapping out of Europe or Turkey and tooling systems from a combination of Taiwan, USA and Germany.
The most common setup for a new user of composite strap is to purchase a starter kit. We keep these as a common stock item and for every strapping size available. A starter kit includes a dispenser cart, a tensioner, 2 rolls of strapping, a carton of buckles and a feeder rod. After ensuring it’s the right product for you, we can get you a quote and process your order in the same day!
