Composite strapping has several different names on the Australian market. It can be known as Cord Strap, Corded Strapping or Composite Polyester Strap. All these are the same product. Basically it’s a high tensile polyester fibre with a polypropylene (plastic) coating. Many general industrial packaging suppliers source their ‘Composite Strapping’ at a cheap rate and compromise on quality. When looking for an alternative for steel strapping or a high tensile, heavy duty strapping make sure to look for something that’s certified and the supplier can provide a testing certificate and a country of origin report. For a few cents per pack at the end of the day it’s not worth compromising on quality. The X-Pak Corded strap is a composite strap that has full certification, is European manufactured and complies with international shipping standards.
