Ratchet Only Straps made with heavyweight polypropylene webbing
are suitable for medium duty outdoor applications. Heavyweight polypropylene webbing has excellent UV protect and does not absorb water quickly giving it better better resistant to mildew and rot resistance. However, polypropylene does not have good abrasion resistance, so it is not recommended for use against rough edges.
Ratchet only straps made with flat nylon webbing
is the webbing of choice for high abrasion applications. It is not recommended for use in or around water continuously because it is less water resistant, making it susceptible to mildew and rot.
Strapworks’ "Patterned Polyester
" is polyester that has been sublimated. Sublimation is a process that virtually tattoos the ink into the webbing by turning a solid ink into a permeating gas. This process is done in house and it allows for great detail and vivid custom colorfast colors. Polyester is the only material we carry that is consistent in its ability to be sublimated.
The sublimation process may take an extra 2-3 days to fulfill your order.

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.
