Polyester strapping band (PET band) is a thermoplastic polyester strapping material that is used for strapping. PET strapping band is suitable to strap heavy goods due to its characteristics. Therefore it is mainly used in the logistics sector and warehouses where a lot of work is done with stacked goods, packaging and boxes on pallets. PET strapping band is characterized by its strength. The band is elastic, but does not lose its tension. In addition, the strapping band is UV-resistant and can be used outdoors, because the weather will not affect the strapping band. Furthermore the PET band is not sharp and doesnโ€™t leave scratches.

Why use polyester strapping band?

Due to the characteristics of PET strapping band, the strapping band is suitable for strapping heavy goods. It has a high strength, even so high that it could replace steel band when it has the right thickness. Furthermore, PET strapping band is ideal to strap loads that can settle, expand or shrink, because the band is flexible. And, PET band is ideal for loads that are sensitive to shock or shifting environments, because the band will remain its tension.

The difference is mainly the type of material. PET strapping band is stronger than PP strapping band.
