Strapping, also known as palletizing, bundling or strapping, is the process of applying straps to group items together. Strapping is used in many different industries and is often used when shipping large items to contain them during transit. Strapping is done manually or with the help of a strapping machine such as a strapping dispenser or a coreless strapping tool.

strapping comes in many different types and materials. When deciding which webbing to buy, it's important to consider things like the intended use and the weight of the load you're strapping.For example, if you are shipping large industrial goods, you will need a stronger type of belt.

All About Materials

There is a variety of steel strapping options that work for industrial applications. While most types will get the job done, using the right strapping ensures that your materials are secure, protected, and unharmed.

Wet climates or extreme temperature changes lead to rust and corrosion so you need the right strapping for that. If you’ll be storing your materials outdoors or creating a permanent strap for outdoor signage or securing a clamp, this is the strapping for you.

If cost is an issue for you, stainless steel strapping might be out of your price range, making galvanized steel a better option. Galvanized steel is lower cost than stainless steel and still has a long life expectancy. Because it’s coated, you get a reliable performance that lasts longer than most other types of metal.

Regular duty steel strapping shouldn’t be overlooked, however. You can get low carbon steel for less than the cost of many other materials. It reinforces your packaging and keeps heavy products together while also allowing you to stack hefty products confidently.

While plastic strapping is more cost effective for some, it’s liable to breakages, has a lower weight capacity, and won’t be resistant to the elements like steel.
