Polypropylene is often measured between high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) on the crystallinity level. This form of strapping is considered light to medium-duty and is the most economical choice for a variety of reasons. Out of all strapping materials, polypropylene is the most widely used and comes in various widths, thicknesses, and combinations of polymers. Polypropylene is often recyclable and is, therefore, an environmentally friendly alternative. The high demand for these straps can be attributed to its a wide range of applications in various end-use industries owing to its their higher strength, greater flexibility, better elongation properties, and ease of handling.
