1.25" x .029" High Tensile Steel Strapping
1.25 inch x .029 inch strap has break strength of 5,450 pounds with 8.1 feet per pound. Steel strapping is edged, painted black, and waxed. Coil weight 104 lb. +/- 10%, 20-24 Coils per skid. Our 1 1/4" steel strapping is rail road approved (AAR) and marked. American made steel strapping is heat treated, and is the staple of heavy industry. 1 1/4" x .029" has become the standard size steel strapping used in the metals industry. AAR steel strapping has a minimum 6.5% elongation per ASTM D3953. Guaranteed to meet ASTM specifications.
Allstrap Opinion: 1 1/4" steel banding used to be most of the strapping tonnage used in the US. Today plastic strapping is making a big dent. Cord strap is now the standard for loading pipe in rail cars, and high tensile polyester strapping is up to 1 1/4"! We expect steel strapping to decrease inversely with poly strapping. There are several things plastic strapping can never do, such as hot coil (or anything above 200 degrees).
