Finishes


American Strapping Company offers a variety of finishes to help you with every job. Please inquire for more information.


Black Painted and Waxed


Our most popular finish is painted black with a baked on paint which is dipped in wax for optimal lubrication so that it works well with all brands of strapping tools.

Blued & Waxed


The surface finish is blued by a heat process rather than painted. Bluing the steel burns off foreign material from steel. Blued strap is an economical alternative that offers similar characteristics as painted strap with less cost.

Unpainted Wax Coated


An economical alternative to painted strapping has all the characteristics of painted strapping except has a lower cost. In some cases, the unpainted strapping will outperform painted strapping. When using unpainted wax coated strapping, there is no paint to clog feed wheels, which promotes longer tool life. Please inquire about this economical strapping option.

Pro Zinc Silver


This zinc based coating has superior anti-corrosive properties compared to black paint or zinc epoxy coated strapping. This product may be used where staining is a concern.

Government Grade Galvanized Strapping


This product meets ASTM and is certified usually as Type 1 Finish B Grade 2. This finish offers the best available protection and is often used in military applications as well as power companies. This special hot dip product usually is designed as a heavy duty steel strapping.

Value Hand Grade Steel Strapping
