Composite strapping is a high strength strapping product manufactured from high tensile polyester fibres, coated in polypropelyene. It has multiple layers of material, making it as strong as steel strapping. This type of strapping is more flexible than steel and unaffected by moisture and the elements. The strap is used in conjunction with heavy-duty galvanised buckles to ensure the strap is resistant to rusting. It’s important to note that composite strapping elongation recovery is high due to the elasticity of the product so your load will remain tightly bound even if the load shifts during transportation (think of the basic concept of a rubber band!).

The Most Effective Applications for Composite Strapping:

  • Packing steel bundles of heavy engineered products
  • Binding building materials such as concrete blocks, timber and glass.
  • Strapping and shipment of bundle items.
  • Fastening materials to skids, crates, or pallets.
  • Securing loads for shipping containers.

Composite strapping is used for many applications requiring a high-strength and durable strap without the inherent rusting problems of steel strapping.

Steel strapping can rust over time which causes the product to become brittle and more likely to break than composite strapping. Composite X-Pak strapping also has a better resistance against oil, grease and solvents common in numerous industries, including automotive, manufacturing, chemical processing and construction.

It is also More Flexible than Steel Strapping.

One of the other benefits of composite strapping is its flexibility. It can be bent over corners, around sharp objects, in ways that steel strapping cannot. This flexibility allows it to be used more efficiently in many situations. Because the product is manufactured from a mixture of different resin materials blended with multiple layers, it’s more flexible and easier to work with than its metal counterpart, allowing it to be an ideal alternative to steel strapping.

Composite Strapping is Safer to Use than Steel Strapping

Poly Composite Strapping is lighter, making it easier to handle and store. This can reduce the risk of injury in an accident or lifting a heavy load. Poly Composite Strapping also has a lower static charge than steel strapping and is less likely to spark during use.

In addition, composite strapping has a similar tensile strength to steel strapping, meaning it can be used for similar applications.

Composite Strapping is Becoming the Leading Restraint for Industrial Applications.

It is apparent that composite strapping has more benefits compared to steel straps. It is more flexible, stronger, and safer to use. It can also be used in various applications where steel straps cannot be used.
