SUNLAND PARK, N.M. - Aug. 28, 2015 - PRLog -- If you work at a packing and shipping company, then you understand the benefits of using a steel strapping tool for steel strapping, rather than not using any strapping at all. Strapping is also known as banding and bundling.  It is the process of wrapping an item with a strap in order to fasten it, reinforce it, and hold it together.  People use strapping for all sorts of items: newspapers, lumber, concrete blocks, brick blocks, pipes, corrugated boxes, wooden boxes, and so forth.  They are also used to attach items to pallets, crates, skids, semi-trailers, and flatbed trucks.  At shipping companies they are used to close boxes and containers in order to ensure the safety of the items inside, so they are not lost by the box being accidentally torn open or spilling.

The last thing you want are your items to be lost during transit because you did not secure the box well enough.  Sometimes packing tape is just not enough to do the trick.  It is extremely important to use strapping during these situations, especially when shipping heavy items.  Steel strapping is the most common type of strapping, as it contains the highest tensile strength.  It is the oldest strapping method used, and varies in thickness and width.  There are different surface finishes for steel strapping, including zinc and wax, paint and wax, or just paint.  The wax helps with diffusing the tension around the bundle.  Once the strapping has been placed, the steel strapping tool is used to crimp the strapping and pusher seals in place in order to keep the strapping from sliding during transportation
