Two plastic strapping materials – Contrax® polypropylene and Tenax® polyester – are the basic components of our plastic strapping systems. We also offer an extensive line of application equipment, ranging from simple hand tools to fully automated, operatorless machines.
Our sales, equipment service, customer service and engineering departments can help you design the optimum protective packaging system for your application
Contrax® Polypropylene Strapping
Signode India manufactures plastic strapping for use with hand tools and high production power strapping machines. Signode India’s manufacturing processes are designed to:
- Control surface properties – to minimize tensioning effort, increase tension-transmission around corners and improve operating efficiency
- Improve split-resistance to increase reliability in tools and power equipment
Contrax® polypropylene strapping is a good choice for light and medium-duty applications, including palletizing, unitizing, bundling, carton closure and reinforcement. It resists splitting and has a smooth, uniform surface so it performs reliably in power strapping machines and hand tools. Contrax® polypropylene strapping has “elastic memory” which absorbs shock and keeps strapping tight during handling and shipping.
Tenax® Polyester Strapping
Tenax polyester strapping is designed for medium to heavy-duty palletising and unitising applications and can be applied by hand tools or power strapping equipment. This strapping material yields higher break strengths and maintains a higher level of retained strap tension than polypropylene strapping for maximum load stability. This makes it ideal for signature bundles and palletised loads of printed materials that tend to shift during handling and transit. Tenax is available in sizes ranging from 9mm to 16mm.
