Metal Cam Strap made with 1 inch Flat Nylon Webbing. Flat nylon webbing 1 inch has a breaking strength of 3000 pounds with a thickness of 0.070 to 0.075 of an inch.
Whether you need cargo management, trailer tie downs, ATV and motorcycle straps, or just straps for river rafting, Strapworks has the perfect solution to your Metal Cam Strap needs. The most common use for cam straps are a strap used to tie down or secure heavy loads, typically on trailers or in the bed of trucks. Cam buckle straps may be considered the "duct tape" of the strap world, but they do have limitations. A strap is only as strong as its weakest link. A guide line for finding a safe working load is to take the breaking strength and divide it by one third. For example, Strapworks’ flat nylon webbing 1 inch has a breaking strength of 3000 pounds, so a safe working load is 1000 pounds. You also need to consider your hardware and stitching. Your cam buckle option include: standard 1 inch (800 pounds), moto cam (1200 pounds) and the stainless steel (750 pounds). You also need to calculate your safe working load for your buckles and your stitching. When in doubt, buy 1 strap and test it for your application.
Please keep in mind the characteristics of the different types of webbing when ordering straps.
Cam Straps made with flat nylon webbing is the webbing of choice for high abrasion applications. It is not recommended for use in or around water continuously because it is less water resistant, making it susceptible to mildew and rot.
Strapworks’ "Patterned Polyester
" is polyester that has been sublimated. Sublimation is a process that virtually tattoos the ink into the webbing by turning a solid ink into a permeating gas. This process is done in house and it allows for great detail and vivid custom colorfast colors. Polyester is the only material we carry that is consistent in its ability to be sublimated.
Cam Straps made with polyester webbing has the same attributes and characteristics as patterned polyester. Strapworks' polyester webbing is also sublimated, but is sublimated in solid colors. Polyester has all of the benefits of Flat Nylon, high breaking strength, high abrasion resistance, soft, smooth, and shiny. It also has the benefits of polypropylene, low water absorption, high UV protection, and it is also mildew and rot resistant. Cam Straps made with heavyweight polypropylene webbing
are suitable for medium duty outdoor applications. Heavyweight polypropylene webbing has excellent UV protect and does not absorb water quickly giving it better better resistant to mildew and rot resistance. However, polypropylene does not have good abrasion resistance, so it is not recommended for use against rough edges.
Cam Straps made with high tenacity polypropylene webbing has almost twice the breaking strength of our 1 inch heavyweight polypropylene webbing (900 lbs.). The thickness of this material is 0.070 of an inch. Its courser weave also grabs stronger in most of our buckles. Our High Tenacity Polypropylene webbing is currently available in an attractive black with a yellow tracer. Just like heavyweight polypropylene, this webbing is perfect for outdoor use. It has excellent UV protection and doesn't absorb water quickly giving it high resistance to rot & mildew.
The sublimation process may take an extra 2-3 days to fulfill your order.

*When selecting the powder coating option, there are two things to keep in mind, one powder coating is not an option with stainless steel cam buckles. Two, to achieve a sure grip on powder coated cams; it is imperative that the user puts pressure on the backside of trigger and push it into the webbing. It may move approximately 1 inch before establishing a secure grip on the material.
Choosing the Buckle Pad option will add a sewn section of
Black Heavyweight Polypropylene under the buckle area to protect anything
beneath it from scratching.
