Plastic Strapping

Meet the Experts in Plastic Strapping Solutions


FROMM Packaging Systems has been leading the way in delivering quality packaging solutions for over 70 years, with a global network that is trusted by a large variety of industries around the world. Our extensive line of packaging products and equipment includes leading solutions for plastic strapping – a popular way of palletising and unitising loads usually for transport.


A suitable solution for every need

In addition to our wide selection of steel strapping solutions, our plastic offering includes both polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET) product options. While steel is a popular choice with many uses, plastic strapping provides an additional set of advantages, including flexibility, which allows it to absorb shock impact during shipping, loading, and unloading more effectively than its steel counterpart.


Comparing polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET)

Polypropylene (PP) is cheaper than polyester (PET), but is also more likely to stretch. This is an ideal solution for lightweight loads. Polyester (PET) on the other hand, costs more, but is also a stronger material suitable to heavier loads.


Uses of plastic strapping

This packaging solution is used to:

  • Unitise boxes and products that has the same shape
  • Bundle smaller parcels for easier handling
  • Secure products for palletising and skidding
  • Close boxes and parcels
  • Secure products or parcels in place
  • Reinforce packaging for transport
  • Bale loose products for easier handling
