Plastic cam buckle straps made with lightweight polypropylene webbing can be used for any indoor or outdoor light duty application. Lightweight polypropylene webbing has excellent UV protection, and does not absorb water readily give it better resistance to mildew and rot. However, polypropylene webbing has poor abrasion resistance, so we recommend not using this material against rough edges. Please note that the 3/4 inch, 1 inch, and 1 1/2 inch plastic cam buckles will only work with lightweight polypropylene webbing.
You can use them as belts, sleeping bag ties in backpacking, and much more. Use your imagination with these lightweight polypropylene cam straps! However, they are not for heavy duty jobs. If you need medium or heavy duty cam buckle straps, please go to our metal cam buckle straps page
. The safe working load is one-third the breaking strength For example, Strapworks’ lightweight polypropylene webbing 3/4 inch has a breaking strength of 450 pounds, so a safe working load is 150 pounds.
You also need to consider the hardware and stitching for your 3/4" plastic cam straps.
Choosing the Buckle Pad option will add a sewn section of
Black Heavyweight Polypropylene under the buckle area to protect anything
beneath it from scratching.
