Strapping Products Evolution
How we strap our products has dramatically evolved. Strapping products evolution has had Abco Kovex heavily involved in Ireland and the UK. Nowadays, strapping is available in a variety of materials from steel, polypropylene, polyester, nylon, corded, woven and composite.
The development of strapping With the development of plastic
Nowadays, with the development of plastic strapping, we can bundle items together. We see some things such as newspapers, pipes, blocks, waste and boxes. Securing goods on pallets and crates comes with this evolution.
Furthermore, this is a groundbreaking development for the polyester strap. Abco Kovex has been at the forefront of this growth in Ireland. Of all the non-metallic strapping available on the market, polyester has the closest breaking strain to steel.
Additionally, polyester also provides great retained tension and recovery properties. These qualities help the product absorb impact without strap breakage. Hence, keeping the product intact. This method works extremely well with products which are double stacked or changing shape. Such as timber expanding and contracting as the strap contracts to hold the load. To conclude, nowadays people, move away from steel to avoid possible health and safety issues.
What about strapping machinery?
To start, thanks to the development of strapping machinery we bundle, tension and seal products offering successful cost-effective and efficient solutions. Also, today we use strapping in every application to ensure our products arrive safe and sound. Moreover, ranging from the bale of briquettes that keeps us warm, the newspaper that keeps us informed and entertained to the strap that bales the rubbish to go for incineration to create energy. Strapping is an everyday product we take for granted but is used every day to make our life’s more efficient.
