Protecting the integrity of galvanized products
The advantages of hot dip galvanizing means that the process is protecting an ever-wider range of steel products globally, with nearly 100 million tons of HDG steel produced every year. Traditionally, steel strap has been used as the securing method for outbound loads from HDG plants.
This approach has its drawbacks:
Galvanized products are extremely hard on expensive steel strapping tooling
Steel straps can scratch or damage freshly galvanized products
Operator injuries from steel strapping are a frequent concern
Many of the biggest galvanizers worldwide choose Cordstrap as their cargo-securing partner, because of the benefits that our technologically advanced products and solutions give them.
A technologically advanced solution
Known as ‘synthetic steel’, Cordstrap composite (CC) strapping is the latest development in strapping technology. It provides a high quality, strong solution to securing loads of all shapes and sizes.
Stronger than steel strap, it will not damage galvanized products in the way that steel can, or cause oxidation. It is also time and cost-effective and improves safety by reducing the risk of injury.
All Cordstrap’s applications are fully CTU compliant and many carry AAR approvals, which is of key importance when trying to ensure cargo is delivered in the same condition as when despatched.
Working with the global resources of Cordstrap allows galvanizers to maintain their competitive advantage worldwide, while minimizing health and safety and product damage incidents during transit.
