Types of Seal Joints
Another way to seal the ends of strapping is to press, or “crimp” undulations into the seal. The strength of the crimp joint comes from the deformed seal creating high frictional forces.
Open seals are snapped onto overlapping strap ends either before or after tensioning, to maintain strap alignment when applied prior to tensioning.
Closed seals are threaded onto the overlapping strap ends prior to tensioning, to maintain strap alignment.
