Tenax High Performance Polyester Strapping

Tenax polyester plastic strapping provides maximum load stability for loads that shrink and settle during transit. Stronger than other plastic strapping materials, its excellent elongation and recovery characteristics help straps stay tight and absorb impacts without breaking. This strapping material yields higher break strengths and maintains a higher level of retained strap tension than polypropylene strapping. It is commonly used for palletized loads, such as PET bottles, to prevent product shifting during handling and transit. It performs smoothly and reliably in power strapping machines and manual application tools and is available in general, high-strength, embossed and high-strength embossed.

Made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Signode’s polyester strapping can be recycled many times. Our manufacturing plants recycle used PET strapping as well as postconsumer and post-industrial PET containers to make new Tenax strapping. Requiring substantially fewer raw materials to manufacture than other strapping, Tenax’s innovative composition enables larger coils of strap, resulting in up to 40% less packaging waste and lower transportation costs.
