Standard Grade Steel Strapping and Metal Banding
Our Apex Plus Signode steel strapping is meant for Standard Grade steel strapping applications. This steel strap is 3/4" x .020" and manufactured with superior edge conditioning and coating. Steel strapping is sometimes referred to as metal strapping.
Steel is the oldest and highest tensile strength strapping. It is available in a variety of widths and thicknesses as well as variations in the grade of steel. Steel is used for heavy duty holding where high strength and minimal stretch are desired. Surface finishes for steel strap include: paint, paint and wax, bluing or zinc and wax. The wax is used to better transmit the tension around the bundle and for use with certain types of tensioners. Common applications include steel coils, bundles of metal, baling wire, bricks and pavers, and roll end-binding. - Wikipedia
Metal vs. Polyester Banding
If you use a pallet of steel each month, then you should consider converting to polyester strapping.
- It is up to the user to determine whether a product is safe and fit for a particular purpose and users method of application
- American Association of Railroads Rules (AAR) may apply
- Strapping should never be used as a handle.
First determine your cost per for the steel product you are currently using and its polyester replacement
(Price/Coil)/(Feet/Coil) = Cost Per Foot_________= Cost Per Foot Steel_____ Cost Per Foot Polyester
Application Cost Savings
Determine the footage needed to package your product, then multiplythe footage times the cost per foot of the steel product and its plastic replacement. The difference between the higher priced steel and the lower priced plastic is your application cost savings.
Steel Cost Per Foot x Application Footage = Cost Per Application
Polyester Cost Per Foot__________________x Application Footage= Cost Per Application___
Difference = Savings Per Application with Polyester________
Yearly Cost Savings
Determine how many coils of steel are used annually and multiply this number by the standard footge of the coil to get the yearly footage required. Then multiply the yearly footage time the cost per foot for both steel and polyester. The difference is your annual savings.
Steel Annual Coils_________x Coil Footage_________=_________Yearly Footage
Yearly Footage___________x_________ Cost Per Foot Steel___=__________Yearly Cost Steel
Yearly Footage___________x______________ Cost Per Foot Polyester___=__________Yearly Cost Polyester
Difference= Annual Savings w/ Polyester=_____________________
