What Makes Stainless Steel Strapping Different from Normal Strapping?

Strapping materials with rope, straws, ratchet straps, etc. is simply not as reliable as stainless steel strapping.


In terms of temperatures, the examples above have a way more limited temperature breakdown compared to stainless steel. This puts bundled materials in an unstable and dangerous position.


Some of the examples above may not corrode, but there are other harmful elements as well that these examples cannot withstand such as water, oxidation, fire, and many more,


For these very reasons, industries choose the superior choice over alternatives for top security.

What is Yield Strength?

Yield strength is when a steel is stressed by an amount that is less than it yields. This is also an important factor to determine a steel’s durability. Any steel that breaks easily under moderate tension is considered low steel grades that are not suited for big projects such as infrastructures.


In this case, the strength of stainless steel straps varies depending on what grade you choose. 


But regardless,  it is capable of going under a large amount of stress without showing any signs of breaking or damage.

What is Elongation?

Some steels are capable of long stretches and this is important for its stainless steel strapping because you want your band to stretch as much as possible (Depending on how many materials you are bundling).


Steel elongation is the rate or percentage of how much the steel can stretch from its original length. The best stainless steel band would be one with the steel grade that is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and can stretch at least 40% from its original length.


Stainless Steel Cable Ties


Avoid rope, straws, plastic straps, cable ties, and other cheap alternatives to bundling your materials. This will only put your materials and the people in your surroundings in danger, which is why stainless steel strapping is the best choice for both small and heavy-duty jobs.
