When industries have minimal budgets, they have discovered other forms of strapping like poly strapping and cord strapping to be equally effective in place of steel strapping. They began switching over from steel strapping in order to cut costs. However, Cord strapping is a good alternative and very economical to use. It is strong and durable and very reliable material to pack even heavy loads.
Industry experts believe that cord strapping is equally strong and durable as steel. The cord strapping comes in various lengths and widths and one can choose from a variety of strapping material depending on the type of applications they are using. This strapping is also a cheaper alternative to poly strapping.
Cord strapping is of three types. They are composite, bonded and woven. The composite cord is the strongest, being rigid like steel. There are several tools in the market that can be used efficiently with cord strapping. Some industries use cord strapping exclusively for manual applications. Pneumatic tensioners also use the cord strapping effectively. There are a lot of advantages to using cord strapping. It is very economical and cost effective. It is smooth, strong and safe for both the senders and receivers.
Cord strapping does not damage the packaging and can weather the elements easily. It does not rust like steel and leave marks on the surface of the package. It is chemical resistant and can be re-tensioned easily. Cord strapping is used along with buckles, which are light in weight. Operators prefer to work with cord strapping as it is easy to strap and work gets done quickly. It also has high system strength. This strapping is especially designed for bundling and palletizing cargo. Pneumatic battery powered tensioners like the ASC325 and ASC395 are used effectively using cord strapping.
Depending on the nature of cargo, different types of pneumatic and lashing tools can be used to provide tension at the touch of the button. This makes the packaging effective.
