Strapping is similar to refueling: you don’t put the cheapest fuel into a top-class engine if you want to achieve maximum performance. Our machines operate with maximum availability as well. But only in combination with high-quality strapping can you experience truly peak results.
As a systems supplier, in addition to machines and comprehensive service, we provide plastic strapping made from polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET). Furthermore, we set new standards by offering our Eco-Strap, which is made from the biodegradable plastic polylactide (PLA). Since 2008, we have been producing strap at our Muckental plant in the heart of Germany’s Odenwald forest. It is one of the most modern fully automatic plants in Europe operating 24/7.
As an additional benefit, we will be pleased to print your logo on our plastic strapping or emboss them with a seal of authenticity. This provides additional security during transportation. If your cargo reaches your customer with the strapping intact, he can be sure that it has come undamaged directly from your facility. Further checks are thus unnecessary.
The right strapping for the right purpose
PP strapping represents approximately two-thirds of our production. As a food-safe and pollution-free product, we manufacture it as standard in widths 5-15 millimeters in black. On request, we will be happy to produce it for you in other colors as well. PP strapping material is particularly suitable for strapping packages, cartons or other containers, as well as lighter pallets.
Very strong and at the same time elastic, PET strapping is often used where steel bands were used in the past. Their elasticity enables them to reliably absorb shocks during transportation. Our PET strapping consists of one hundred percent recycled plastic bottles (bottle flakes) and is equally suitable for friction or ultrasonic welding. After use, it can be easily fed back into the material cycle. Our PET strapping is available in widths of 9.5 to 15.5 millimeters. It is thermally stable and, depending on width, can sustain loads of between 180 and 600 kg.
Plastics from renewable resources are coming more and more into the focus of the packaging industry. As the world’s first strapping material manufacturer, Mosca took up this challenge. With our Eco-Strap which is produced of the natural material polylactid acid (PLA), we have already made the first step in this direction. This strap is made of biocompatible polylactide plastic that is produced from renewable raw materials. After use, the strap can be industrially composted. Currently the Eco-Strap is available in a strap width of 5 mm, other dimensions in 8 and 12 mm will nearly be launched.
As much as you need – whenever you need it
We are also very flexible in terms of deliveries of our strapping. From a single box to an entire truck or container load, everything is possible by arrangement. If you are interested, we support you individually, determine your needs and also supply larger quantities rapidly.
Just as with our machines, you also benefit from our expert advice in choosing strapping. We can help you identify the optimum strapping solution for your needs.
