What Is Poly Strapping?
Poly strapping can be one of two things. Either polypropylene strapping or polyester strapping. Each type of strap has its own benefits and features.
Poly strapping is arguably the most commonly used and least expensive of all strapping materials. This is because it is light and easy to apply and recycle. It makes it the perfect material for bundling, sealing, or securing your products, boxes or objects. We offer this application as a few different materials.
Poly Strapping Terms
Polypropylene and polyester strapping both offer great benefits for tight holding and durable protection of products and objects. However, there do have different applications where one may be better than the other. Here are two key terms for benefits of poly strapping to know when using the material for packaging, palletizing, or shipping.
Elongation recovery refers to how much a piece of poly strapping will revert back to its original state after it gets stretched. Since the poly strapping needs to absorb impacts, it needs to elongate in order to do so. Once it stretches, it needs to "recover" and get back to its original state. It cannot simply stay loose, since that leaves the items open to possible damages. When you use poly strapping in extreme temperatures, like scalding hot or freezing cold, then the elongation recovery may be impacted in a negative way.
Retained tension is the amount of tension or tightness that remains in a length of plastic strapping after a certain amount of time. It goes without saying, but you want good retained tension so the package or object stays secure while in transportation. When it is tight, less damage occurs, which saves everybody money and a headache.
The Challenges of Applying Poly Strapping
All types of strapping are susceptible to problems and issues. Even the extremely durable steel strapping. In most cases when strapping fails, it comes down to poor application and not a flaw with the strapping itself. In other words: user error. So no matter how much experience you have using the material, always pay close attention when strapping your loads.
