High-Strength Tenax™ polyester strapping reduces safety hazards and is easier to dispose of and recycle than steel strapping and wire. As a result, it is the preferred bale packaging material of some of the nation's most influential textile mills.
Utilizing our patented Z-weld seal joint technology, Signode's fully automatic bale strapping system is the first polyester strapping system approved by the National Cotton Council's Bale Packaging Committee.

High-Strength Tenax is a highly engineered polyester strapping material that combines the performance properties of both steel and plastic strapping to form a stronger, more resilient strapping material. Since its introduction in 1990, High-Strength Tenax has become a viable replacement for steel strapping in many heavy-duty unitizing, waste baling and tin plate applications. Its elongation and recovery characteristics help straps stay tight and absorb impacts without breaking, making it an excellent choice for tin plate unitizing.
Tenax polyester strapping is ideally suited for unitizing PET bottle, glass container and metal can bulk loads. It yields higher break strengths and maintains a higher level of retained strap tension than polypropylene strapping. So straps stay tight on beverage loads that tend to shift during handling and transit. Tenax can be applied by hand tools or power strapping equipment. Some sizes are available in long coils for fewer coil changeovers and greater uptime.
Committed to developing ideas for recycling and reusing the products we make, Signode's innovative Closed Loop Recycling Program enables companies to recycle used polyester strapping to reduce their packaging waste and disposal costs. It's an easy, practical and economical way to fulfill your environmental safeguarding objectives.
