Polyester’s high tensile strength and low creep for rigid loads makes it an ideal hazard-free alternative to steel strapping.

What is PET strapping?

Made from extruded thermoplastic polyester, Polyester strapping (PET) is an extra tough, super robust strapping solution specifically designed for stabilising heavy-duty packaging, such as bricks, blocks, tiles, metals, pipework and can/bottle pallets. It also has high elasticity properties, meaning it moves with the package. 


You can apply PET strapping tape by hand, and secure using buckles, seals and hand tools or automatic machinery. 


Available in eight different colours (black, clear, green, white, red, yellow, orange and blue), our PET strapping can also be single-colour custom printed for brand identity, usage or security purposes from a choice of up to four standard ink colours (black, red, blue and green). Other colours are available on request. 

We can manufacture PET strapping to suit your exact requirements. We'll even test an existing strap to make sure you get the right strapping – simply submit a five metre length of any strapping and we’ll test to make sure the correct grade is specified for the application, ensuring 100% efficiency.
