Packing with polypropylene PP strap
Polypropylene is an economical material with light and medium-heavy load capacity, for connecting pallets and combining boxes. It is available in different widths, thicknesses, and variations of polymers (e.g., copolymers).
This type of product offers the possibility of greater elongation, but stretching at some point stops, especially when the tape is subject to a constant load.
Packing with polypropylene PP strap is most efficient when using battery strapping tool. Because of that, you will save time and material. When packing with battery banding machine you don’t need clips for packing.
It is not known to the end users that the PP strip will lose 50% of the applied voltage already in an hour, while the loss of voltage will only increase with the increase in room temperature. Therefore, PP strap needs sufficient tensile strength. To speed the packing and operate with sufficient tension most industries are using automatic solutions. The PP tape can be printed, which provides additional marketing benefits.
Advantages: Cost-effective, efficient, easy, easy to use and recyclable, high elongation, reuse.
Weaknesses: low elongation load, not suitable for heavy objects sensitive to environmental factors, greater wearability if used in sharp, hard objects
Methods of application: hand tools, manual tensioner, and stapler, battery tensioner and stapler, semi-automatic machine, automatic machine
