High Performance Polyester Strapping Supplier

PAC Strapping High Performance polyester strapping is engineered to provide you with a consistent, high quality product for your toughest strapping applications. Uti – lizing the latest in technology, our experienced manufacturing team sets rigid quality standards and maintains a relentless commitment to producing a range of polyester strap that consistently performs in the most demanding applications.

The PAC High Performance Polyester Advantage

Unlike alternative strapping products, PAC polyester combines the strength of steel strapping with the safety and economy of plastic to maximize performance. The result is a more secure load at a lower cost than many alternatives.

Some of the many advantages of PAC polyester over alternative products are:

  • Split Resistance – A small nick or cut will not propagate across the width of the strap.
  • High Retained Tension – The high tension capability of PAC high performance polyester allows it to be applied tight. Once it’s on your load, it stays tight … 50% tighter than nylon and up to five times tighter than polypropylene.
  • Elongation Recovery – Applied properly, PAC high performance polyester will stretch under tension. However most of the elongation is recovered after the initial application. The result is a strap that stays tight even when loads are shrinking and settling during transit.
  • Environmentally Sound – PAC polyester is easy to recycle and nearly impervious to weather conditions.
  • Not just a “cheaper” alternative to steel – For many applications, it’s a better solution. Historically, steel strapping has been the preferred choice for certain types of loads. PAC high performance polyester is now a better alternative for many of these applications. Unlike steel, PAC polyester has “shock reserve”. This allows the strap to compensate for stresses during transit and enables it to recover so it stays tight. PAC high performance polyester also has several other advantages over steel strapping.
    • Safety – Not only is the danger of recoil injuries greatly reduced, PET coils weigh about half the weight of steel coils, reducing potential lifting injuries.
    • Weather Resistant – Unlike steel, PET won’t rust. It is virtually unaffected by weather conditions and is naturally UV resistant.
    • Recyclable – Easy to recycle, PAC polyester can be cut into small pieces and accumulated for recycling.
    • Cost Savings – Typical steel applications that can be converted to PAC High Performance Polyester can yield savings of 25 – 50% over steel costs. Additional savings are frequently realized in labor and other costs associated with using steel strap. Paybacks on equipment and tooling can be quick and the resulting return on investment considerable.

Application Methods

PAC High Performance Polyester can be applied several different ways using a variety of tools and systems, all available from PAC Strapping Products, Inc.

Manual Tools – For lower volume applications, a manual tensioner and sealer using a special serrated seal to maximize joint efficiency are a cost-effective solution.

Power Tools – Battery and Pneumatic – Power tools are a cost effective method of application for both higher volume and higher tension requirements. They carry several distinct advantages, including high seal joint efficiencies, consistent tension, and the cost savings associated with a friction weld vs. a mechanical seal.

Automatic Strapping Machines and Systems – For high volume applications, PAC can provide a range of solutions from stand alone strappers to complete systems for pallet conveying, wrapping, and strapping. Our systems specialists can handle every aspect of your system application: design, build, installation, and maintenance.

Application Tips – Polyester Strapping

  • For maximum performance, polyester strap should be tensioned to the working range (50–70% of break strength).
  • Be careful not to overspecify polyester strap. Higher residual tension is often possible by applying PET at a higher tension,
    not a heavier strap.
