Polyester’s unique qualities make it one of the best strapping materials to use for securing any type of palletized or unitized load. Depending on the size of steel strapping currently being used, polyester strapping can provide up to a 25% savings in strapping costs. Polyester can eliminate the need for metal seals in certain applications, which provides additional savings and reduces product damage that might occur through the use of other packaging alternatives.
Steel strapping is used extensively for reinforcing shipments and for unitizing and bundling materials to permit more efficient handling. There are two basic types of steel strapping: Regular Duty and High Tensile. Each type offers specific advantages depending on your application. Your ACME representative is a skilled packaging professional who can help you select the strapping and equipment, which will provide the best results at the lowest cost.
Regular Duty steel strapping is manufactured from cold rolled steel under -rigid control. Precise uniformity in width, gauge control and finish ensures trouble free operation with both manual and pneumatic tools.
High Tensile strapping is manufactured from cold rolled steel and heat-treated to provide high tensile strength and ductility. High tensile strength affords extra protection and shock resistance under demanding strapping conditions.
Standard finish is painted and waxed.
Polypropylene strap is an economical packaging solution designed for light to medium duty unitizing, palletizing and bundling. Acme’s polypropylene is embossed to achieve efficient seal joints and superior split resistance.
This product offers elongation recovery properties to ensure secure packaging for shipping and storage. Offered in a wide variety of sizes and gauges, Acme’s polypropylene strapping will perform consistently with all types of seal friction, heat in power strapping equipment and tooling.
A Variety of Applications
Constructed of high-strength polyester with superior elastic properties, Acme’s Avistrap strapping provides dependable performance for light-to-heavy duty bundling, tying and unitizing applications. Avistrap features excellent elongation and recovery characteristics to stay tight and absorb impact shocks. It’s safer to handle than steel strapping and will not damage forklift tires. Avistrap polyester strapping won’t rust or stain your products when exposed to the elements.
Regular duty non-woven polyester
ideal for securing lightweight packages. For use when hand tensioning, tying or using buckle joints.
Regular duty woven polyester
ideal for securing scrap bundles and a variety of miscellaneous loads. For use with manual tensioning tool.
Heavy duty woven polyester
ideal for heavy lumber and metals. For use on loads where high break strength and abrasion resistance are critical.
Types of Seal Joints
Another way to seal the ends of strapping is to press, or “crimp” undulations into the seal. The strength of the crimp joint comes from the deformed seal creating high frictional forces.
Open seals are snapped onto overlapping strap ends either before or after tensioning, to maintain strap alignment when applied prior to tensioning.
Closed seals are threaded onto the overlapping strap ends prior to tensioning, to maintain strap alignment.
FEATURES for FLEXBAND Machine Grade Strapping
BONDED CORD STRAPPING (non-woven) Bonded cord strap is used as a safe, inexpensive product for bundling and securing a wide variety of items across a multitude of industries. From agriculture, landscaping, automotive, printing, light building products, to baling corrugated and plastic for recycling, bonded cord strapping is your best solution.
WOVEN CORD STRAPPING Woven strapping provides additional bi-directional strength and split resistance often required in harsher environments. General purpose woven cord strapping is cost effective and ideal for securing and bundling light to medium/ heavy loads for most industries. Heavy duty and extra heavy duty cord strapping are super tough-high tensile products designed for application to replace more expensive steel strapping. These products are used primarily for securing heavy and extra heavy loads in the bundling, metal and plastics industries as well as for rail car load securement.
COMPOSITE CORD STRAPPING Composite strapping is made from polyester fibers coated with clear polypropylene. The clear polypropylene coating provides added water resistance protection and improved handling properties when threading the strapping under pallets and through metal buckles.

Acme offers sealless manual combination tools that eliminate the need for metal seals. These tools are designed for high steel strapping seal joint efficiency, and lower total packaging costs. Using a punch-and-die to cut an interlocking wave shape pattern into the overlapping straps creates sealless joints.
Acme includes four types of manual tensioners; Push, Rotary, Rotary Push and Drum. Each tool is designed for safety and ergonomic function. This means that when you tension steel strapping, you get the desired result that fits the need of your application. Tool selection is dependent on your specific application.
