PP strapping

PP strapping is produced in 5 – 16 mm strap width and 0.35 – 1.25 mm strap strength. Breaking strength reaches from appr. 70 kg to 500 kg for 15x1.25 mm. Hence, with the same strap width and thickness PP strapping reaches only ~ half of PET strapping's breaking strength. In contrast, elongation is with around 20% significantly higher.


If PP strapping is used with automatic strapping machines, core ID is generally 200 mm. There are some older strapping machines, mainly produced by Strapex, that require a PP strapping core of 280 mm. Some older Signode strapping machinhes also need 150 mm core ID.  When used with manual or battery-powered strapping tools (or with some automatic pallet strapping machines), core ID 406 mm can be considered as standard. Most exotic is core 62 mm - that is required for very old small table strapping machines and only produced by very few companies.


Besides different core diameters and dimensions, PP strapping can also be differentiated by its surface which can either be embossed or smooth. Smooth PP strap manufactured by Signode is called „Dylastic“ strap and is available on core 406 and on core 200 mm. On core 200 mm, it is intended for use with Signode Spirit strapping machines and is thus calles Spirit strap. But most suppliers manufacture PP strapping as embossed version; that is due to the following advantages of embossed PP strap:


If PP strap is processed by an automatic strapping machine, it can be sealed faster due to the bigger surface of the embossed strap. When processed with manual tools, the profiled surface enhances flexibility and breaking resistance. And also costs are lower as strap thicknessed is measured on the embossed surface; hence, less material is required for the same nominal strap strength.

 

LINSTRAP PP straps have fully-automatic grade and can thus be used with both manual and fully-automatic strapping machines. As almost every specification can be manufactured, please consider the table below as extract of all possible specifications. All kinds of PP strap can be manufactured in various colours and also be printed with your company logo or slogan.
