The Bandfix® banding and accessories are available in 304 and 316 stainless steel grades for excellent corrosion resistance and durability – they are a fantastic choice if you’re looking for some new banding products!

In this post, we are going to cover the benefits of using Bandfix® ECOseal Banding Clips in your strapping project.

What is ECOseal?

Back in 2015, BS Stainless created ECOseal which is an innovative and improved version of traditional wing seals for banding. The ECOseal was the very first patented design by BS Stainless, and it continues to be a crucial solution for many banding tasks.

In many insulating and jacketing projects where stainless steel banding is used, the secured material mustn't be damaged or pierced. If the substrate becomes damaged, water can enter, resulting in corrosion and insufficient insulation. Traditionally, standard wing seals presented many issues that caused this kind of damage. First of all, as the tension on stainless steel banding is incredibly high, the seals must be able to hold and resist the pressure. Due to this, the clips were designed with large, bulky wings that caused damage to the insulating materials.

The ECOseal was designed to solve these issues, which it successfully achieved! Find below some key benefits of utilising Bandfix® ECOseal Banding Clips.

The benefits of using Bandfix® ECOseal Banding Clips

  1. Independent tests completed for the ECOseal prove that is 20% stronger than traditional designs.
  2. Although they are stronger, they have 12% less metal content making them more lightweight and easier to use.
  3. As a result of their lower metal content, the time and energy put into the manufacturing process are a lot less, overall saving energy costs.
  4. The compact design means you can fit more seals on a single pallet, averaging about 25% more. Therefore, expenses are reduced on delivery and shipping volumes too.
  5. Just like all of our stainless steel products, the ECOseal clips are 100% recyclable, making them a sustainable and cost-effective option.
  6. Best of all, they are manufactured right here in the UK! So, through BS Fixings, you have the opportunity to cut out the middleman and buy directly at trade prices from the manufacturer.

Now you can see why it’s called the ECOseal!
