Unique Banding Design

Unique Banding Design

N/A Unlike traditional plastic strapping that is smooth and must be connected with steel buckles, Q-Band® is designed with “Teeth” that allow the connecting clip to grip the band. Unlike banding with metal buckles or cut-to-length plastic ties, Q-Band® is easily adjustable and reusable.

Unique Clip Design

Unique Clip Design

N/A Q-Band®'s clip is not pre-connected to the band. This allows for ties of any length with zero waste. Unlike other types of banding, Q-Band® is easily releasable and reusable. Simply release the clip and it is ready for another use, saving money and time.

Q-Band®'s patented band and clip system allows you to make banding up to 100 foot length, making for neater jobs and less waste. For jobs that require banding with a tight grip, we offer our stainless steel tightening tool.

Band Specifications

Band Material

N/A Black Q-Band® is impregnated with a UV stabilizing agent to give 10 years+ of useful of outdoor life. The black band is also strengthened with special interlocking nylon fibers to add banding strength and reduce band creep (stretching over time).

Band-N-Go Inc. stocks black Q-Band®.

Band Sizes

N/A Q-Band® is sold in 100 foot coils.

Band Operating Temperature Range

N/A Q-Band® is well suited for use in a wide temperature range with a continuous operating range of -30 ºF to 200 ºF. Q-Band® is manageable in cold weather conditions where other banding systems are not.

Band Strength

N/A Q-Band®'s special fiber reinforcement design produces banding with all of the benefits of plastic with added strength for strong banding jobs.

Note for Band Strength

N/A With a tensile strength of 4,000 psi and a flexural modulus of 350,000 psi, Q-Band® is effective where other plastic banding is not.

Q-Band® is ideal when your job demands strong banding for an extended period of time. Field tests have shown Q-Band® to provide years of service with very little elongation due to creep (stretching over time) or thermal expansion.

With a coefficient of expansion of only 0.00005 in/in/ºF, Q-Band® will vary only about 1% in length over its entire operating range of 230 Fahrenheit degrees.

Chemical Resistivity

N/A Made of polypropylene, Q-Band® has excellent chemical resistivity properties. From salt water to sulfuric acid, Q-Band® is superior to other banding systems in harsh environments. Q-Band® will not rust like metal banding and will not rot like some types of rope.
