Polypropylene strap is convenient when packing boxes with goods – the strap looks neat, does not hide the appearance of the main packaging, and at the same time securely keeps the goods together. Polypropylene banding strap for packaging has a number of advantages over the steel strap, due to which it has become more widespread in the market. Tightening and banding polypropylene straps are used not only for fastening heavy cargo, but are also used in the food industry, woodworking industry and even in the printing industry. The packaging polypropylene strap does not scratch, cut or press the package, as opposed to the steel strap, and besides, such strap is easy to dismantle. An important feature of the packaging PP strap is the stretching of the strap, while the material after stretching does not change its width. Owing to stretching, the strap can tightly strap entire groups of goods, which become securely fastened together.
The sale of polypropylene strap has become popular due to a number of advantages of this packaging material:
- the strap has a light weight and does not take up much space in the warehouse;
- convenient and simple strap operation which does not require any special equipment;
- the strap does not rust, does not leave marks on the packaging, does not scratch the goods during transportation and storage;
- PP strap has the highest durability;
- when the strap breaks, the chances of damage to the package or injury to a person are reduced to zero, which cannot be stated regarding the steel strap;
- polypropylene strap looks aesthetically on the packaging and does not spoil the appearance of the product.

The cost of such a packaging polypropylene strap is higher, but it can become part of the factory packaging, perfectly fitting into the general appearance of the product.
PP strap can be fastened in several ways:
- clamping is one of the most popular methods and also the most cost saving. The ends of the strap are held together by metal clamps and held together securely on the package
- yarn method lies in passing a special yarn through the strap, which fastens the ends of the package more reliably. A special tensioner is required for packaging, although the strap in this case adheres more firmly during the transportation of goods
- thermal method allows the ends of the strap to be welded due to the high temperature. Special equipment heats the strap and seals the ends of the packaging, which makes it even more dense and reliable.

The metal (steel) fastening strap is the most reliable and robust packing material. In numerous sectors, replacing the metal strap with any other packaging material is simply not possible. The resistance of the steel packaging strap to cutting impacts from sharp objects is significantly superior in comparison to other strapes. Relatively inexpensive and structurally uncomplicated (and, therefore, reliable and easy-to-use) tools and equipment are used to strap cargo with metal strap. The application of steel strap for packaging does not require highly qualified personnel. A significant advantage of metal packaging strap over its competitor PET strap is its ability to be applied in all weather conditions, while the use of PET strap in low temperatures faces difficulties. In cold weather, the quality of frictional bonding of PET strap using a hand tool is not high. Steel packaging strap does not have this disadvantage and can be used in unheated workshops, outdoors in cold weather and in other unfavorable temperature conditions.
As a packaging material, metal strap has its own disadvantages. When transporting goods, shaking and pushing cannot be avoided, while the steel strap is irreversibly stretched and the fastening weakens. A robust metal strap cannot extinguish the impact during a strong impact load and breaks. Steel packaging strapes are not highly resistant to moisture and other corrosive environments, and corrosion may occur in unfavorable conditions. Rust from the strap can damage the product. A significant disadvantage can be considered a high risk of injury in the process of removing the metal strap during the cargo unpacking.
As a rule, metal strap is successfully applied where the use of polyester and polypropylene packaging strapes is not possible. If the cargo has sharp edges, or it is very hot, there is no alternative to using a metal strap. Steel packaging strapes are used to strap heavy and overweight cargo during warehousing or in difficult transportation conditions. High-strength metal packaging strap is used for strapping pipes, angle bars, metal blanks, ingots, metal products, and reinforcements. Steel strap may be used for packaging of timber and building materials - stone, brick, foam blocks, roofing materials. Steel strap is used for packaging furniture, furniture blanks, lumber, chipboard or wood fiber components and plywood. Fastening strap is used for group packaging of boxes, fastening coils, pallets. Steel packaging strap makes it possible to quickly and reliably fasten the cargo on pallets, platforms, and holds.
According to applicable standards, some goods can only be transported fastened with a steel strap. Metal packaging strap is traditionally used for packaging of goods in black and non-ferrous metallurgy, heavy industries, construction and other areas. Enterprises use metal strapes due to an indispensable combination of properties, a relatively inexpensive cost, simple requirements for packaging equipment and working conditions. During packaging cargo intended for export, the use of metal strap is simply a necessity, as this is determined in the regulatory export operations of international standards. The sealing of the metal fastening strap ends is carried out by metal clamp or with the help of seals using the rouletting method, as well as in a sleeveless way - with a self-tightening lock using the holes in the strap. It is possible to use hand tools and automatic machines metal strap sealing. Hand tools can be pneumatic or mechanical. The hand tool is a relatively low-cost solution that does not require high costs and high personnel qualifications. Automatic packaging machines allow fast and efficient packaging of cargo using the metal strap, ensuring high performance and uninterrupted operation.
The imported steel packaging strap, offered by the Skladpak company, is perfect for packaging goods, both manually and using automatic packing machines. The packaging of goods with metal strap ensures high safety of the goods during transportation, compliance of the packaging with the requirements of standards and, ultimately, competitive advantages in the market.
