Meeting and exceeding professional packaging needs

Home Manufacturing & Processing Packaging Meeting and exceeding professional packaging needs

POLYETHYLENE terephthalate (PET) is one of the strongest and highest quality types of plastic, especially when it comes to strapping.

That’s according to Fromm Packaging Systems, which says this superior quality ensures that PET strapping is softer on tools.

“It also boasts a very consistent tensile strength and a very high elongation. Typically, it has 17 – 20% elongation potential, which helps to improve safety during packaging and transport,” the company said in a statement.

While the quality of the plastic is important, so is the quality of the manufacturing of the actual strapping.

“Fromm is committed to always deliver the highest standard with every product and service. This is supported by the fact that our state-of-the-art factory in Caprino, Italy, as well as our new plastics production factory in Kölleda, Germany have been awarded ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications. We guarantee the consistency of the thickness and uniformity of the straightness of our PET strapping products.”

The company also produces a range of tools to apply strapping, including manual, battery, and pneumatic tools.

“We strive to create better products for a better planet. This approach has resulted in Fromm being one of the world’s largest PET recycling companies. Our polyester strapping is made from PET bottles that are recycled at our plant in Wolfen, Germany.

“In addition, we have also extensively invested in converting our operations to solar power to lower our carbon footprint, and our production facilities have evolved to meet zero waste to landfill.”
