Nylon strap has the greatest specific strength of the three plastics, the cost outweighs the strength benefits. In the past nylon strap used to be very popular, but over time polyester has replaced almost all of its use. One application that still uses this type of strap is cold room applications, because it does not creep as much as the other types of plastic.

Corded and woven strapping is available in several constructions, generally in polyester and rayon. Because this system uses a buckle for a joint, corded and woven strapping can have larger system strength than steel banding.   Corded polyester strapping also has higher elongation and memory than other strapping systems, which makes it ideal for sea and rail shipments. Because corded and woven polyester is light and soft, it is also a safer alternative to steel banding and is more environmentally friendly as it is generally reusable.

There are specialized types available for specific applications. For instance, in cold climates a strap bonded in hot melt glue can be used because it is weather-proof.

Composite strapping has filaments embedded in it and is often referred to as “synthetic steel”.  It has the highest joint efficiency when used with a buckle is very abrasion resistant.

As experts in load securement and cargo securement, Redback Industries consistently reviews cargo securement rules to make sure we’ve got the right products for the job.

The rules for cargo securement state that that all devices and systems used to secure cargo on or in a vehicle must be capable of meeting the performance criteria. All vehicle structures, systems, parts and components used to secure cargo should be in excellent shape, with no damaged or weakened components that might fail during transport.

For this reason, we recommend either POWERWEB Woven Cord Strapping or POWERFLEX Composite Strapping which both stay tight, and retain tension better than other methods of load securement.  These two products will absorb the shocks of shifting cargo, so that your cargo stays secure, and suffers less damage than it would using steel chain or steel banding.  Not only that, but POWERFLEX and POWERWEB are both easy-to-use, and safe since they don’t snap back like steel banding.

To find out more, check out this demo of our POWERFLEX Composite Strapping.  To read more about the Federal Cargo Securement Rules, visit www.fmcsa.dot.gov.  And to find out how Redback Industries can help you secure your load, visit www.redback.com.

Hand grade poly strapping, is a user-friendly packaging solution that is applied using manual poly strapping tools such as feeders, tensioners and sealers. It is ideal for hand strapping and palletizing in smaller to medium volumes.  Hand grade poly strapping is able to stretch for a snug fit during packaging and has low tension retention.  Manual tensioners and crimping systems are available for low volume applications. Automatic hand tools are used for higher volume applications.  Both manual and automatic tools are available as combination tools, which perform the tensioning, sealing and cutting, or as separate tensioners, sealers, and cutters.

Hand grade poly strapping can be manually applied using wire buckles and tightened using manual strapping tools. The ends of the poly strapping can be fused together using a handheld friction weld, a heat sealing strapping tool or a plastic strapping seal.

Redback Industries carries a complete range of strapping tools and strapping tensioners for securing cargo. Redback’s line of PROSERIES strapping tools is noted for their precision manufacturing, durability, and safety. Industrial strength strapping tools and accessories are economical and require minimal maintenance.

Different strapping needs require different tools – at Redback Industries, we want to make sure you have the right strapping product for the job, along with proper strapping tools.

Machine grade poly strapping, or machine grade polypropylene strapping, is specially designed to be applied using a strapping machine or a tabletop banding machine. You can use both semi-automatic and automatic strapping machines with this type of strapping. The machine grade poly strapping’s high elongation and recovery, as well as its low tension retention, make it an excellent choice for secure and speedy machine strapping and palletizing.

Strapping machines, also known as bundlers, are used for high volume applications or special applications. They are available in horizontal and vertical orientations; bottom seal, side seal, and top seal orientations; semi-automatic and automatic varieties. The automatic versions are designed to be used inline with conveyor systems.
