Buckles & Seals
Seals for hand tool application
All types of 12mm Signode plastic strapping as well as 16mm and 19mm High-Strength Tenax strapping can be sealed with hand tools using metal seals. Signode manufactures snap-on seals for manual sealers and Nestack seals for use in combination strapping tools with seal magazines.
Contrax polypropylene strapping, designed to run through hand tools and power strapping equipment, provides superior performance for light to medium-duty bundling and carton closure applications. It has excellent elongation recovery properties, making it ideal for products that shrink or compress, such as top-iced food packages and newspaper bundles.
Tenax® embossed polyester strapping
Tenax® embossed polyester strapping Signode’s new highly engineered embossed Tenax strapping, available in both regular and high strength, provides reliable performance for a variety of applications that require exceptional strength with high retained tension. Its excellent elongation characteristics along with the ability to accommodate multiple tension levels help straps stay tight and absorb impacts without breaking, improving the arrival conditions of loads.
High-Strength Tenax is a highly engineered polyester strapping material that combines the performance properties of both steel and plastic strapping to form a stronger, more resilient strapping material. Since its introduction in 1990, High-Strength Tenax has become a viable alternative for steel strapping in many heavy-duty baling, bundling, palletizing and unitizing applications. Its elongation and recovery characteristics help straps stay tight and absorb impacts without breaking.
Magnus steel strapping
Magnus steel strapping is a cold-rolled, heat-treated, medium carbon steel strapping that provides high tensile strength and excellent shock resistance for the heaviest-duty applications.
Apex Plus is a cold-rolled, medium carbon steel strapping, engineered to yield a higher break strength at a thinner gauge than regular-duty steel strapping. In many light to medium-duty applications, Apex Plus can substitute for the heavier gauge regular-duty steel strapping to save money on material and shipping costs.
