Strapping bands are mainly used to group products or to ensure the stability of a pallet load during transport or storage. They are usually made of PP (polypropylene) or PET (polyethylene terephthalate).
Recyclable strapping bands
PP strapping bands have a non-slippery texture and are available in various colours. PET strapping bands are smooth and often green in colour because they are made from recycled bottles.
Non-recyclable strapping bands
A third type of strapping band consists of PET fibres which are held together with glue (see photo on the right). These strapping bands are not recyclable.
