Details

About the Material

The beauty of this band and buckle system is that it is manufactured either from Nylon 66, Nylon 12 GF, Nylon 11 GF or Acetal POM each coming in ¼” (3/4”) or 1 ¼” (32mm) sizes.

Each of these materials have different characteristics meaning you can choose the one that suits your application. If the correct polymer is chosen, the Smart® Band Hybrid can withstand Sour (CO2) & Sweet (H2S) Gases, UV beams, high temperatures and salt water.

Unrivaled quality

Low profile buckle was designed in order to allow this system to be used in downhole applications and, just like Smart® Band Standard, this band comes in rolls which means it can be cut to required length.

Extra Information

About Nylon 12GF / 11GF - Glass Filled Variant

Glass Filled variant of Nylon 11/12. Providing greater rigidity, perfect when prototyping rigid parts intended for production in advanced engineered thermoplastics, and is the right choice for functional testing. Form, fit and functional testing can now be completed without sacrifice. The filler is glass bead and not fibre; part predominantly increases in stiffness but not strength. Filler ratio approximately 40% by weight. Not hydroscopic or porous (given sufficient wall thickness), thereby negating the requirement to seal the surface on components being used with liquids.
