Pallet strapping is one of the most effective ways in which products and packages are bundled, palletised, or strapped together to form cargo. Strapping is a form of security and package protection that is used in a variety of industries.

PET strap heavy-duty is ideal for large products that require high tension and a vital strapping accessory to hold them together while in transit. This article will discuss the benefits of using PET strap heavy-duty for your products. 

What exactly is a PET strap

PET or polyester strap is a strapping accessory manufactured from polythene terephthalate material or PET chips. It is an excellent alternative to steel straps. PET strap heavy-duty can either be used with a manual strapping tool that uses clip sealing or PET strap sealing. PET strap has a superior strength-to-weight ratio than steel straps. 

What are the advantages of PET strap heavy duty? 

  • Durability 
  • PET strapping is a more durable method compared to steel straps. It has an elastic effect that continues, shrinking cargo tighter and ensuring excellent security and safety. The PET strap heavy-duty has high tension and retains it for longer when compared to steel straps. This is due to the higher tensile strength. PET straps can be relied upon to adjust while the cargo contracts or expands because of the pressure or changing weather conditions.

  • Environmentally friendly 
  • Suppose you like taking caution about how you impact the environment with the accessories and materials you use for your packaging. In that case, a PET strap is ideal because it is environmentally friendly and weather and UV-resistant. It can retain its tensile strength and elastic effect even when facing weather changes or extreme heat from the sun. PET strapping is environmentally friendly because it is easily disposable for recycling after its removal from the cargo.

  • User-friendly 
  • You don’t have to worry about your employees getting injured or having difficulty using PET straps. This is because they are user-friendly and very safe, and economical. PET straps are lightweight, although they have a better strength-to-weight ratio, making them far more economical when compared to steel straps. Regarding safety, PET has smooth edges, so it is less likely to cause personal injury or forklift tyre damage, well tensioning, or cutting.

  • Protects products from damage 
  • Unlike other strapping accessories, PET strapping heavy-duty does not have sharp edges, making it less likely to damage products, materials, or cargo. Also, unlike steel straps, it does not rust from any moisture during the rainy season. Ideal for strapping cloth, fibres, cotton, and other products that need to remain clean and intact when in transit.

  • Highly flexible 
  • PET strapping possesses highly superior flexibility and can maximise product protection. This is because it is more elastic compared to other strapping accessories. This is essential when securing heavy loads throughout travelling time, mainly if your product is transported on the road.
