What is strapping?

Strapping bands are packaging material and used to secure goods such as pallets and boxes for transport. Available strapping material vary in its width and thickness and made out of different materials such as plastic, textile or steel. We at Teufelberger offer plastic transport protection made out of polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET).

What is the difference between PP and PET-strapping?

When choosing the right strap you may ask yourself PP or PET. What is the difference? The most important factor to wether choose PP or PET strapping is the application of the strap, how much load will be exponsed on the strap during transport.

Generally applies:

  • PP (polypropylene) straps are for lighter applications. In general, they are thinner and available in various colors such as white, blue or black. PP is the “classic” strapping band most people know from newspaper bundles or strapped pallets.
  • PET (polyester) straps are usually broader and have a higher breaking strength. In most cases, they are available in green and used for heavier applications such as bundling of metal pipes or building materials.
Purpose of strapping?


  • On common purpose of strapping is to bundle lose goods which cannot packed in boxes. Applications are wide-ranged from newspaper to magazines, from building materials such as bricks and wooden beams to metal pipes and –bars.
  • A good reason to bundle goods is the possibility to count big units more easily if packed into smaller packages. Once goods are packed handily, they can be stored faster and transported easier.


  • Another good reason for strapping is the possibility to close packages or boxes. The strap prevent the opening of the box during transport and goods reach their destination safe and sound. With the help of hand-tools or strapping machines, strapping of goods is an easy and fast task.
  • In addition, opening of a strapped good is easy: pull the strap close to the welding seam and remove the strap in one piece, without any residues or damaging the goods.


  • For applications where goods are compressed straps are a good alternative. The straps tear strength and tension keeps the good in its shaped form and supports a safe transport. Examples are cardboard stacks where straps holds the cardboards tight and bundles of fibers compressed and kept tight into place for transport.


  • Securing of goods is another good example how to use straps. Straps secure the transported good on a pallet and ensure load safety.
  • An important goal is to prevent accidents due to bad load security; therefore, it is essential secure the goods safe (first step within the package, second step within the mean of transportation). Straps can undertake this task, however which strap is suited depends on the individual application as well as on the goods which have to be secured.
