Remember: Strapping is applied using tension, therefore when removing strapping materials use caution, eye protection is recommended.

Why choose polypropylene Strapping?
Polypropylene strapping is the most common form of plastic strapping, lightweight, economical and resistant to liquids and corrosives, widely used for light to medium duty applications including baling, carton closing and light weight pallets. Holding the title of the most versatile strapping material, it can be applied with manual tools, friction weld tools or semi and fully automatic strapping machines. It is also the most flexible strapping material, with high elongation properties it offers the most β€˜stretch’ of all strapping materials, therefore it has the flexibility to easily bend around irregular shapes and withstand shock without breaking.

Using a Semi-Automatic Strapping Machine

Strapping packages with semi-automatic strapping machines is completed in 3 simple steps:

  • Dispense a piece of strapping to begin.
  • Place the package on the machine table.
  • Pass the strap over the top of the package and back down the opposite side of the package into the channel on the top of the machine.
    From here the machine will tension, heat weld seal and cut the strap. Your package is ready to go! This can be done up to 17 times per minute, no seals or extra tools are required.
