Suitable strapping for mining and earthmoving parts

Wear parts and heavy machinery spare parts are often very hazardous to pack for transport. Common issues occur in transport due to the following factors:

  • Sharp edges can often rub and cut through strapping
  • Metal products are prone to slippage and movement
  • Heavy parts on pallets are often unevenly balanced

It’s recommended that heat shrink products are also applied for maximum load security and minimal movement. The X-Pak 32mm composite strapping with a breaking strain of 2700Kg is ideal for large, heavy loads and can also be used as an alternative to ratchet straps for securing items into containers for export.
