VK 30 Retrofitted to a Steel Machine

Polyester's unique qualities make it one of the best strapping materials to use for securing any type of palletized or unitized load. Depending on the size of steel strapping currently being used, polyester strapping can provide up to a 25% savings in strapping costs. Polyester can eliminate the need for metal seals in certain applications which provides additional savings and reduces product damage that might occur through the use of other packaging alternatives.


Proven Performance
Samuel Strapping Systems' Research and Development efforts have led to the introduction of an industrial strength polyester strapping, approved by the Association of American Railroads (AAR) for open top and closed rail car shipments of Brick, Lumber and other panel products.


Ease of Disposal
Polyester strapping can be easily disposed of by rolling or bending. Also, it can be cut into small pieces with our HLC80 Strap Chopper and accumulated for recycling.


Elongation Recovery
Polyester strapping provides approximately 2% elongation at normal work tension, which allows the materials to stretch. The strapping will recover this elongation however, keeping the strapping tight around the package even if the load settles and shrinks in size.


Moisture & UV Resistant
Because it is plastic, it is moisture resistant and therefore unaffected by rusting that might occur with other packaging alternatives which may stain or affect the quality of your product before it gets to its destination. Our polyester strapping is also UV resistant to protect strapping from long periods of exposure to the sun.
