What contributes to choosing the right quality plastic strapping?

  • Composition of base material
  • Breaking strength
  • Elongation percentage
  • Dimension stability 
  • Surface resistance 
  • Weight and finish

In order to achieve the best results, FROMM checks the plastic strapping it supplies rigorously against these points.

Applications and industries

PP strapping has played a major role in packaging since the 1970’s. It has proven to be an efficient and economical solution for securing packages and pallets, with its ability to be produced in almost any standard colour and printed with ease of brand identification. 

It remains a favourable solution for:

  •  Strapping newspapers and printed matter
  •  Small bundles of wood and profiles
  •  Strapping of boxes and light loads on pallets
  •  Agricultural and horticultural products
  • Paper rolls or pallets made of corrugated or cardboard plates

It is worth noting that as it loses more than 50% of its original tension within the first 24 hours and is poorly resistant to UV, it is best suited to lighter loads.
