Plastic strapping is replacing steel for all but the heaviest applications.

Advantages of polyester strap include:

  • Less expensive
  • Safer, cleaner
  • 80% lighter
  • Longer length coils
  • Will not rust or stain
  • Elastic memory
  • Easier to discard or recycle
  • Higher impact resistance

For these reasons, many shippers are converting from steel strapping to polyester strapping using the simple formula as shown below:

Steel to Poyester ConversionFormula

Step 1:

  • Price per coil of steel divided by the number of feet per coil = Price per foot of steel strapping
  • Price per foot of steel strapping multiplied by the Feet per application = Price of application with steel strapping

Step 2:

  • Price per coil of polyester strapping divided by the number of feet per coil =Price for foot of polyester strapping
  • Price per foot of polyester strap multiplied by the number of feet per application = Price of application with polyester strapping

Difference:

  • Step 1 minus Step 2 = $ Savings per application with polyester strapping
