Plastic strapping
Contrax® polypropylene strapping

Contrax polypropylene strapping is designed to run through hand tools and power strapping equipment. Its excellent elongation recovery properties make it a good choice for light to medium-duty unitizing applications, including horizontal unitization of case goods.

 

 

Steel strapping
Apex Plus™ steel strapping

Apex Plus is a cold-rolled, medium carbon steel strapping, engineered to yield a higher break strength at a thinner gauge than regular-duty steel strapping. In many applications, Apex Plus can substitute for the heavier gauge regular-duty steel strapping to save money on material and shipping costs. Our zinc finish Apex Plus strapping is waxed and has a zinc enriched coating to provide superior resistance to rust.

 

 

Magnus® steel strapping

Magnus is a cold-rolled, heat-treated, medium carbon steel strapping that provides high tensile strength and excellent shock resistance for the heaviest-duty applications. Our zinc finish Magnus strapping is waxed and has a zinc enriched coating to provide superior resistance to rust..

Stretch wrapping systems

Stretch wrapping systems

 

For nearly 30 years, Signode has been one of the world’s largest producers of stretch wrapping systems, including both stretch film and application equipment. These systems, which may be used exclusively or in conjunction with strapping systems, help protect products from damage during handling, transit and storage.

We produce our own stretch films in a variety of types and sizes, including hand application films and machine applied films. We also offer a full line of application equipment, from hand held wrappers to fully automatic stretch wrapping systems.

Our sales, equipment service, customer service and engineering departments can help you design the optimum protective packaging system for your application.
