If you're not sure which type of strapping is right for you, consider the differences between elastic and hook-and-style styles. At Strapworks, our elastic has 40% stretch, so it has plenty of give without getting loose. Plus, this elastic features excellent memory so it won't get stretched out over time thanks to interwoven strands of rubber and synthetic fibers. Due to its stretching capabilities, elastic straps are most commonly used for suspenders, bathing suits, hair ties, underwear and watch bands.
Hook-and-loop strapping features the familiar Velcro technology with two sides: one a bit scratchy and one a bit softer. The two sides stick together securely while still being easy to pull apart. That's why it's used in a wide variety of applications, including costumes, snowboarding pants, wristbands or clothing cuffs. At Strapworks, you can get double-sided Velcro strapping or classic hook-and-loop strapping which come with two pieces (one scratchy, one soft).
Now that you know more about this unique strapping, it's easy to find the perfect fit for you. Just go to your preferred material and you'll be able to select the exact width and color that you want for your new Velcro or elastic strapping.
