Ear style buckles are available in grades 201 and 316 stainless steel. These are applied with the Strapbinder® ST001 spin tight tool.
Heavy duty buckles (ST440, ST441, ST442) for use with Bigbinder band in demanding banding applications. Buckles can accommodate a single or double band wrap.
201 Stainless Steel
Type 201 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.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.
