The difficulties around feeding soldiers in the field have baffled military leaders since the beginning of organized warfare. With the ever changing and unpredictable nature of combat, getting nutritious and edible meals to front-line troops has never been easy. In recent years, the U.S. Army's Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center (NSRDEC) has been on the cutting edge of MREs (Meals, Ready to Eat) and other combat rations. The experts at Natick aren't just concerned with making a food ration that the troops will actually want to eat but also one that will survive the trip to the front lines and beyond. If keeping your troops fed and ready for battle means you need to drop cargo out of a plane, then you are going to want to make sure that your strapping is right for the job.
Before the advent of plastics, steel was the strapping material of choice. However, as technology has caught up with the Army's most complex shipping needs, it has become clear that future of strapping is in plastics. While PAC does not supply the actual strapping for the Army's new project, we do make a host of polyester strapping products that would be perfect for this and a wide variety of other applications.
It's fair to say that you most likely won't face the kind of challenges or demands of the Army. Nevertheless, you still need to find a way to provide consistent, high quality strapping to handle all your toughest shipping and delivery needs. The experts at PAC have the perfect solution for you: our High Performance Polyester Advantage.
Unlike many other strapping products, PAC polyester combines the strength of steel strapping with the safety and cost-savings of plastic. PAC polyester is split resistant, retains a higher level of tension then nylon and polypropylene, and is safer than steel. On top of all these benefits, it just so happens that our PAC High Performance Polyester can also yield saving of 25-50% over steel.
If you need your loads to stay tightly strapped through all the stresses of transit, contact PAC today an let us tell you all about the High Performance Polyester Advantage. You might not need to air-drop your goods behind enemy lines, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve the best strapping available.
