Description / Abstract:

This specification covers flat steel strapping and seals intended for use in closing, reinforcing, bundling articles for shipment, unitizing, palletizing, and bracing for carloading, truckloading, lifting, and lashing. 

This specification includes strapping and seals made from carbon steel and applies only to the types and sizes as cataloged by strapping suppliers to be a standard, commercially available product. It does not include "specialty"-type strapping as developed for special applications or strapping produced from alloy metals. 

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. 

Performance characteristics may be negatively affected by extremes of temperatures, such as occur during the annealing of steel. 

The following safety hazards caveat applies only to the test method portion, Sections 11, 12, and 13, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
