Oak Distribution's Strapping Options
Regular duty steel strapping is a low carbon form of steel strapping produced for light to medium duty applications. Steel Strapping can be used for package reinforcement, unitizing, palletizing, box closures and bundling. The most common sizes of steel strapping are 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", and 1-1/4" and gauges from .015 to .029.
Plastic Strapping (Polypropylene and Polyester)
Oak Distribution stocks a wide selection of polyester and polypropylene strapping in a multitude of widths, colors, core sizes, and break strengths.
- Polypropylene Strapping - Machine Grade and Hand Grade
Polypropylene strapping or poly strapping is available in both machine grade and hand grade and is the most economical strapping and banding solution. It is light and easy to apply and recycle. Polypropylene strapping is used for light to heavy bundling and light palletizing / unitizing applications. Both manual and machine grade poly strapping can be sealed with buckles, seals, heat seals or friction welds. Poly strapping is used in all semi-automatic strapping machines and nearly all stand-alone arch machines.
- Polyester Strapping - Machine Grade and Hand Grade
Polyester is the most rigid of all strapping materials. It provides excellent impact resistance, low elongation and more break strength around corners and edges than steel. Polyester strapping is not affected by temperature and moisture. Frequently used on heavy-duty loads that require high initial tension along with high-retained tension. A replacement for steel in some applications, polyester strapping is considered to be safer than steel. Our polyester strapping is available in both machine grade and hand grade and is easy to dispose of and to recycle.
