Applications & Benefits

As a packaging method, paper banding stands out as using very little material – we promote it as a ‘minimal packaging solution’.  In tests, WRAP highlighted their results that showed for some common applications there was a 67% saving in materials over shrink wrapping or bagging.

The original purpose of paper banding in the packaging context was to securely bundle multiple items for the printing industry – cash, printed cards and leaflets, lay flat and folded cartons, envelopes and other stacked items. The gentle nature of the wider banding material caused no damage to edges and top/bottom packs unlike strapping machines.

As paper banding machines have become more prevalent, other applications have become clear. Bands can be used to provide tamper evidence, secure items for shelf loading, secure items for box loading – or pre shrink wrap, to permit multipacks for retail and, when using printed materials, offer a non-adhesive solution for labelling.
