Key product features

About the Material

The beauty of this band and buckle system is that it is manufactured either from Nylon 66, Nylon 12 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.

Benefits of Nylon 12 (PA 12)

  • Low water absorption
  • High strength and flexibility
  • Superior chemical and UV resistance
  • Excellent abrasion and surface slip characteristics
  • Remarkable high impact strength at low temperatures

Benefits of Nylon 66 (PA 66) Versatile and Quick and easy to use

  • High tensile strength
  • Improved stiffness
  • High chemical resistance
  • Heat and wear resistant, suitable for applications with a higher temperature

About Nylon 12GF - (Glass Filled Variant)

The Glass Filled variant of hybrid buckles are exactly as they sound, glass filled. The addition of glass to the polymer increases the rigidity and strength of the buckle, which combined with the band, makes this system one of the strongest available on the market.
