Magnus Steel Strapping

Magnus strapping is a cold-rolled, heat-treated, medium carbon steel strapping that provides high tensile strength and excellent shock resistance. Manufactured to the most exacting tolerances, it provides uncompromising quality and packaging effectiveness for the heaviest-duty applications.

Features and Benefits

Available in three finishes, each Magnus strapping product line is specially formulated to meet the demands of a range of tensioning methods, sealing devices and packaging applications.

  • Painted and waxed
    Painted and waxed strapping is the most widely used strapping in all applications. The waxed property improves tension transmission around load corners, while the paint improves corrosion resistance.
  • Zinc painted and waxed
    Zinc finish strapping is waxed and has a zinc-enriched coating to provide outstanding resistance to rust. It has the same improved tension transmission characteristics as painted and waxed strapping.
  • Specialty finishes and applications
    Signode has a variety of specialty products for hot applications, spot-welding, annealing, and printed items. Please contact us to discuss special applications products.
