Technical Information

Stainless Steels Basic Differentiation

Type 304

Nickel-chromium stainless steel. For general use.

Type 316

Nickel-chromium stainless steel with added molybdenum. For use in highly corrosive environments, e.g. shipbuilding, offshore oil rigs.

Type 201

Nickel-chromium stainless steel with lowered nickel content & added manganese. For use where added strength is required, e.g. sign installations.

Loop Tensile Strength

Break loose point of cable tie with end inserted into clasp. Measured in weight e.g. lbs.

Carbon Steels Basic Differentiation

Low carbon steel – softer, more flexible, used in Regular Duty (RD) steel strapping

High carbon steel – harder, stiffer, used in High Tensile (HT) steel strapping where added strength is required.
