Cord strapping has established itself as an effective alternative to steel strapping. Whether it is the rigidity of composite strapping or the durability of heavy duty woven strapping, cord eliminates many of the hazards of steel strapping. The soft and flexible texture of the strapping protects the most sensitive products. It is safe on virtually all surfaces, does not corrode, rust, or stain products, and will not damage forklift tires.
Polyester cord strapping has smooth edges and is non abrasive so it makes it ideal for hand applications. Cord strapping can be hand tied or applied using inexpensive strapping tools eliminating expensive tool repairs. It is also five times lighter allowing for ease and flexibility of use.
Due to the memory and elongation and elongation recovery, cord strapping can absorb shocks much better than steel strapping, and it will not lose its tension if the load contracts or expands.
Cornerstone Cord Strap is gaining in popularity as companies consider the bundled advantages of strength, safety, disposability, and cost.
Polyester cord offers excellent resistance to moisture and is frequently used in outdoor applications. The heavy duty polyester sizes are now frequently replacing steel in lumber applications. Other common uses are in the agricultural and boating industries.
