Polypropylene is designed for use in a multitude of applications. It is popularly used for the closure of various packaging items such as corrugated cartons, pallets, crates and bails. You can purchase our polypropylene strapping in a variety of colours, sizes and lengths, according to your needs.

Hand Strapping (Polypropylene)

Hand strapping can degrade if exposed to the elements for extended periods of time. As a result, black is the most popular colour ordered, however white is also available. You can purchase our hand strapping in the following colours and sizes:

  • 1500m length with 12mm width – available in black.
  • 2000m length with 12mm width – available in white.
  • 1000m length with 19mm width – available in black.


Semi-automatic strapping is used on small strapping machines on production lines. It offers a durable solution to semi-automated packaging systems. You can purchase this strapping in white, in the following widths and lengths:

  • 4000m length with 9mm width.
  • 2500m length with 12mm width.

Fully Automatic

Fully automatic strapping is in demand in industries where production lines require large quantities of cartons or packages of the same or similar size to be strapped. Large automatic strapping machines are used for the process. This product is available only in white and in the following sizes:

  • 4000m length with 9mm width.
  • 3000m length with 12mm width.

Polyester (PET)

Polyester (PET) strapping is a strong and durable alternative to steel strapping due to its strength, affordability and the fact that it is user friendly. It can be used for containing and securing heavy loads and will remain tight and tense even if the contained package shrinks – this is due to its high elasticity.

Polyester strapping is available in green and in the following widths, lengths and thicknesses:

  • 2500m length with 12mm width and 0.5mm thickness.
  • 1800m length with 15.5mm width and 0.6mm thickness.
  • 1200m length with 16mm width and 0.8mm thickness.


Steel strapping offers strength and rigidity for packaging heavy duty applications. We supply our steel strapping in bright or galvanised steel – both options are available in a variety of widths and thicknesses. Each of the steel strapping rolls in our catalogue weigh approximately 50kg per roll and as the rolls are sold according to weight, their lengths can vary.

We stock the following options:

  • Roll with 13mm width and 0.5mm thickness.
  • Roll with 16mm width and 0.5mm thickness.
  • Roll with 19mm width and 0.8mm thickness.
