Bands > PROBAND®

Advantek PROBAND™ is a protective band made of carbon-loaded polystyrene designed to be wound around the diameter of standard size shipping reels of loaded carrier tape. The band covers the outermost wrap of carrier tape to provide added protection for packaged components. The bands are slightly wider than the carrier tape, preventing the fl anges from crushing together during dry-pack or handling to protect packaged components from impact damages.

  • Available in EIA standard carrier tape width from 8mm to 88mm
  • Complete protection for devices when used with the Advantek LOKREEL® and LOKBAND®
  • Available in lengths to fit standard size shipping reels
