Plastic Strapping

Plastic Strapping

Signode produce two plastic strapping materials — Contrax® polypropylene and Tenax® polyester — are the basic components of our plastic strapping systems for the securement of a wide range of products, from newspapers, pipes and cotton bales.

Our sales, equipment service, customer service and engineering departments can help you design the optimum protective packaging system for your application.


Signode India offers a variety of hand tools for tensioning and sealing plastic strap. For some strapping operations, a manual tensioner and separate sealer provide an economical means of applying plastic strapping. Metal seals are used to form the strap joint.

Feedwheel type

A serrated feedwheel grips the strapping and rotates to draw up slack. Fast and easy to position and use. Take-up is unlimited, and strapping may be used directly off the coil.

Windlass type

Applies tension by gripping one end of the strapping and winding the other around a slotted shaft. Can apply greater tension than feedwheel models

Walking gripper

Lightweight tensioner/cutter designed for buckle applications with plastic strapping. Provides maximum tension with Steelock or Dylock buckles.


Front-action sealer handles are held perpendicular to the strapping, usually in front of the operator who pushes handles together to crimp the seal.

Combination Tools

Manual seal-feed combination tools offer the convenience of a single tool that tensions, seals and cuts the strap. These tools carry a stack of seals in a seal magazine for more efficient operation.


The AST manual seal-feed combination tool uses Contrax, Dymax and Tenax strapping. The AMT-58 is the ideal tool for High-Strength Tenax strapping.
