Types of Seals

5 types of seals and why you should use them and 3 tips for using them safely.

These clever stamps are very well designed. The steel band is threaded through the seal and forms a loop. The loop surrounds the load. This type of strapping is suitable for round or regularly shaped loads.The band tightens and the seal is forced tighter as the loop tightens. This type of gasket is high strength and can withstand heavy loads.


Another brilliant idea. This type of sealing is used in combination with sealing tools or machines. Chargers can be stacked and then used with strapping machines.These seals are also durable.
The advantage here lies in the stamp application using stamp feed technology.


This type of seal is widespread. This type of seal can help maintain belt alignment when tensioned. The seal sits on the overlapping straps and is tightened after the load has been tensioned to the correct tension.One of the great advantages of this type of sealant is the speed with which it can be applied.


These seals are excellent but require more preparation. They must first be threaded onto the tape. They are also useful for larger strap sizes.
In fact, they can be used on belts up to 2 inches.If the seals are tight, you can double score or double fold them.
Like the other seals, they must be placed on the overlapping straps before tightening.


These steel stamps are coated on the inside with a non-slip surface. A bit like sandpaper. When the seals are tightened, this extra layer of adhesive adheres firmly to the load.This can help maintain the seal and protect the load during an impact. Under normal circumstances, an impact could loosen the seal and release the load.
The Microgrips were developed to help in such situations.
