Zargal PET

Fitco Strapping

PET is a heavy duty strap that in many cases replaced steel strap or heavy PP strap. It is characterized by high breaking strength in combination with a good recovering capacity and high resistance against impact load.

Applications

Key features of Zargal PET

  • Strength and durability: excellent tensile strength, allowing it to withstand high tension and heavy loads. Resistant to breakage and providing reliable packaging support.
  • Lightweight: compared to other types of strapping materials such as steel is Zargal PET lighter. This makes it easier to handle and reduces shipping costs. It's an attractive option for applications where weight is a concern.
  • Elasticity: a higher degree of elasticity compared to Zargal PP, allowing it to absorb shocks and impacts during transportation without losing its shape or breaking.
  • Safety: safer to use compared to alternatives like steel strapping, as it is less likely to cause injuries during handling or cutting. Our PET product has no sharp edges.
  • Corrosion resistance: not susceptible to rust or corrosion. This makes it ideal for packaging items that are sensitive to rust or require long-term storage.
  • Weather resistance: Zargal PET maintains its performance in various weather conditions, including extreme temperatures. It is resistant to UV radiation, moisture and chemicals, making it suitable for outdoor.
  • Recyclability: contributing to environmental sustainability as it can be recycled and used to produce new PET products or other plastic items.
  • Easy handling: easy to handle and can be secured with manual or automated strapping tools. It can be tightened securely around items and easily cut or removed when needed.

Guarantee a high stability

In most cases PET-strapping is produced from 100% recycled material (PET bottle flakes) and is only available in green color. Especially with heavy duty applications and long-term storage and/or transport this strap guarantees the highest possible stability of the load.

Advantages compared to PP strap

  • Superior tensile strength and elasticity
  • Better UV resistance
  • High shock absorption
  • Maintains tension around pack/pallet, less loss of tension 
  • 1 single color and 1 inner diameter on stock
  • More rigid strap, better feeding in track strapping machine
  • Less residues in strapping head
  • Environment friendly (recycled material)

Advantages compared to STEEL strap

  • Higher shock absorbency
  • Pet maintains tension better around pack than steel
  • More meters per coil (less coil changes)
  • Printable
  • No oxidation, no contamination of packed goods
  • Cheaper tools and strapping machines
  • Minimal risk of injury when opening packaged goods, no tools required
