The combination of high breaking strain and minimal material stretch makes steel strap very suitable for strapping heavy loads. Steel strap is the strongest strapping material we have. The combination of high breaking strain and minimal material stretch makes steel strap very suitab le for strapping heavy loads. Besides being very suitable for large and heavy loads, steel strapping is completely recyclable.
The quality used depends on the duration of storage and/or transport, with blue or black lacquered steel strap being available. Most common widths are 12, 16 and 19mm, with two different types of winding: the EV (Single) and the AW (American Winding). Both windings can be mechanically processed or processed on portable machines.
Steel strapping can be bound without sealing using a so-called swallow tail. The steel strapping is then pressed together with great pressure using our steel strap machines JK 12-19 or the MST3. Steel strapping can also be bound using seals.
