Caristrap was the first in the world to receive AAR approved cord strapping in the pulp & paper industry in 1990. It has proven its power through countless impact tests, laboratory analysis and field trials. Unaffected by cold or high humidity, Caristrap ensures that shipments arrive intact anywhere in the world.

The Pulp & Paper Industry

  • Protective gear is not required when handling our soft and flexible strapping. The shock absorbing elasticity of our fibers ensures load integrity, with no cutting edges to damage your paper. Caristrap is being used to secure palletized, bilge, railcars, intermodal and truckloads in a wide variety of loading patterns.

  • Metal banding and air bags being used by the mills are susceptible to breakage under weight of the loads trying to shift. Once loose, the constant pounding inside the boxcar will eventually cause the rolls to become flat and the metal banding may cut the rolls during transit.
