As one of the first PET strap manufacturers on the European market we have produced over 60,000,000 km of polyester straps since 1978 – that is the equivalent of a strap running round the equator about 1,500 times. In the light of this high production volume the subject of sustain - ability is firmly established in our corporate philosophy. Since the co-establishment of KBV Kunststoffband-Verwertungsgesellschaft mbH over 20 years ago we have recycled umpteen thousand tonnes of PET strap. All Cyklop polyester straps are made of recycled raw materials and 100% of them can be reused. The Cyklop Premium manufactured at our main plant in Cologne is regarded as the strongest PET strap on the market. Since recently we have been also offering our customers individualised printing on our PET straps. That makes them not only unique but also unmistakable.
Cyklop PET straps offer the most ecological and economical strapping method at present for securing your cargo reliably. As the leading provider of state-of-the-art PET strap technologies in Europe, Cyklop already recognised the enormous advantages of polyester straps over steel straps at a very early stage and had a major influence on the development of PET straps.
Nowadays, our range of products covers many different types of strap for a very wide field of applications. The Cyklop PET straps manufactured at our production buildings in Cologne, including their cardboard core, are fully recyclable. Consequently, you have a clear conscience when you dispatch your cargo safely.
With our PET straps, we opt for safety through holding power. It is a product property that is particularly important when strapping heavy load units. Cyklop PET straps are efficient application all-rounders and they are available in three strap qualities. First of all there is our most economical and competitive strap, Cyklop Premium,which despite its small strap cross-section provides a very high breaking load. These are distinct advantages when it comes to holding power, safety and financial aspects. After all, compared to standard qualities, a smaller strap size can be used at the same breaking load, i.e. there is a solid material saving and costs are reduced.
With a tensile strength of 550 N/mm 2 Cyklop Premium is suitable for particularly heavy-duty strapping operations on account of its higher breaking load and optimal strap and edge strength. The Premium strap, which is made from top-quality granules, is very low on consumption and offers not only more meters per coil but also greater safety and this continuously. That not only has an impact on the length of the strap coil but also leads to lower transport and storage costs. Only a few PET straps available on the market have comparable attributes. In addition, for production reasons our coils never deviate by more than 2 % from the specification quoted. That's guaranteed!
