Steel Strapping / Banding

Industrial Carbide regularly keeps several truckloads of steel banding in stock. Whether you need a roll, a skid, or multiple pallets, we can offer the best price on the widest assortment of sizes and styles of steel strapping material.

We offer "A" grade, prime material (consistent gauge or thickness and excellent paint coverage) as well as "B" grade, seconds (potentially inconsistent gauge or thickness and paint coverage). We offer Regular Duty, Hi-Tensile, and in-between alternatives. You can choose from black painted and waxed strapping, unpainted, zinc-coated, or galvanized banding. We offer stainless steel banding and punched / perforated strapping; and most of these come in ribbon wound or oscillated wound coils. See the chart below for steel strap specifications, with the best sellers noted by the gray background. Please note that we price strapping by the pound, and a typical roll weighs 105 pounds; a skid usually has 13 rolls and weighs around 1300 pounds. If you want to figure your skid cost, then take the price you see and multiply by 1300; that will give you a reasonable estimate, though the amount you will be charged will depend on the actual weight of the skid you receive.
