POLYESTER PLASTIC STRAPPING

Embossed PolyesterEmbossed PolyesterSmooth Polyester
Embossed Polyester

ASC Polyester Strapping is typically green opaque in color and is available in 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", and 1" widths with various break strengths and gauges available. Coil Size for ASC Polyester Strapping is 16" x 6" and ships 28 coils to a skid.

Why are people switching to Embossed Polyester from Smooth Polyester?

  • Embossed polyester takes less force to tension which results in tighter packages.

  • If you are using battery tool with embossed, you will get more cycles out of your battery before charging is required.

  • Its been shown that you get better seal joint effeciency with embossed as opposed to smooth.

  • Embossed polyester tends to split less.

TABLE REFERENCE
Strapping break strengths are listed as averages. Always use linear break when calculating break strength. Refer to the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM D3950) minimum break strengths for package design/safety factor purposes. All measurement, size, footage, tensile, thickness, are nominal measurements based on an average measurement made on a number of samples. Variation in measurements are due to standard manufacturing practices. For proper strapping selection, contact your ASC sales representative
F = Fully Automatic, S = Semi Automatic, H = Hand Grade
If you do not see the size you are needing, please Contact a Sales Representative
