Specta enhanced its product range with Specta Forte 15 steel packing strap and in the aftermath of the test complex, it was certified by Association of American Railroads (AAR) in March 2019.
The high-strength steel packing strap Specta Forte 15 was assigned with ID AAR-104. The certification means an approval of the packing strap for use in the territory of USA, Canada, and Mexico to pack cargoes to be transported in open railroad vehicles.
Specta Forte 15 has been specifically designed to handle heavy cargoes. It guarantees a reliable strapping in difficult transport and storage conditions due to its high strength and elongation, as well as increased resistance to dynamic and impact loads. It is used in ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy to pack hot-rolled coils and sheets, stainless steel (hot-rolled and cold-rolled), pipes, sections, wire, bar-rolled and shape-rolled stock. The strapping of finished products at high temperatures is allowed.
