Bands are available in Type 304 or 316 stainless steel for added corrosion resistance. Our product is made with a full round edge for safe handling. Primary applications are hose assemblies and sign securements use with tensioners. Where added strength is needed, use a double wrap, threading the band through the buckle twice.
Type 304 Stainless Steel Type 304 is a chromium-nickel-manganese alloyed stainless steel. In the annealed condition this grade has excellent mechanical properties and strength. Due to its high work hardening rate, it possesses uniform elongation for improved stretchability for severe forming applications such as strapping bands and preformed hose clamps.
Type 316 Stainless Steel Type 316 is a chromium-nickel alloy with the addition of molybdenum. The addition of molybdenum gives this grade superior corrosion resistance which warrants its use near salt water and in petro-chemical facilities. This grade exhibits excellent creep strength at elevated temperatures.
