3 CYKLOP GMBH. Keeping an EYE ON YOUR SAFETY. SINCE 1912. One century of experience in engineering, five continents, 50 countries and over 1,000 employees have made us one of the largest suppliers of machines and consumables for load securement in the world.

Ever since the company was established back in 1912 the name of Cyklop has stood for innovative strength and production quality. Strapping, stretching, bundling, taping, sealing or tacking – we develop professional, cost-effective solutions to meet all requirements. The wood, construction material, metal and synthetic fiber industries, the paper, publishing and printing sectors, as well as the corrugated cardboard industry are just some of the numerous branches of industry that we supply with our PET strapping systems.

As one of the first PET strap manufacturers on the European market we have produced over 60,000,000 km of polyester straps since 1978 – that is the equivalent of a strap running round the equator about 1,500 times. In the light of this high production volume the subject of sustain- ability is firmly established in our corporate philosophy. Since the co-establishment of KBV Kunst- stoffband-Verwertungsgesellschaft mbH over 20 years ago we have recycled umpteen thousand tonnes of PET strap. All Cyklop polyester straps are made of recycled raw materials and 100 % of them can be reused. The Cyklop Premium manufactured at our main plant in Cologne is regarded as the strongest PET strap on the market.

Since recently we have been also offering our customers individualised printing on our PET straps. That makes them not only unique but also unmistakable. 3

CYKLOP PET STRAPS. THEIR STRENGTH IS OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS.

THEIR Holding Power IS YOUR PROFIT. Cyklop PET straps offer the most ecological and economical strapping method at present for securing your cargo reliably. As the leading provider of state-of-the-art PET strap technologies in Europe, Cyklop already recognised the enormous advantages of polyester straps over steel straps at a very early stage and had a major influence on the development of PET straps. Nowadays our range of products covers many different types of strap for a very wide field of applications. The Cyklop PET straps manufactured at our production buildings in Cologne, including their cardboard core, are fully recyclable.

Consequently, you have a clear conscience when you dispatch your cargo safely.

6 CYKlOP PET STRAPS. BEST CHOICE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. FIRST CHOICE FOR YOUR CARGO. with the production of our ecological PET straps Cyklop is making an important con- tribution to responsible treatment of the environment. PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is made from oil and can be entirely reused.

Used PET bottles are returned to authorised recycling companies, where they are sorted by colour and subjected to shredding. The bottle flakes obtained in this way are then treated in a resource-friendly process to make new polyester tubing material. For our strap production we use a very special mixture of selected raw materials that we even partially obtain ourselves in an energy-friendly recycling process. At our Cologne plant there are several extrusion lines available for manufacturing top-quality PET straps.

we also assume responsibility for the disposal of used Cyklop PET straps, as a KBV member, and have them, where agreed, sent to a TÜV-certified recycler, where they are reprocessed. _ 100 % recyclable _ 100 % PVC-free _ 0 % softener 6

Breaking load = total strap thickness x embossing factor x strap width x tensile strength [N] real thickness [mm] [mm] [N/mm2 ] Width: 15.5 mm total thickness: 0.7 mm EXAMPlE It all depends on the specification! Breaking load is the result of strap cross-section and real thickness. Even slight deviations that cannot be perceived with the naked eye lead to significant decreases in breaking load, which means serious consequences for the safety of your cargo in transit.

The Cyklop embossing factor is normally 10 % so it determines real thickness and, like tensile strength, thus also has an influence on the breaking load of the PET strap.

It is a product property that is particularly important when strapping heavy load units. Cyklop PET straps are efficient application all-rounders and they are available in three strap qualities. First of all there is our most economi- cal and competitive strap, Cyklop Premium, which despite its small strap cross-section provides a very high breaking load. These are distinct advantages when it comes to holding power, safety and financial aspects.

After all, compared to standard qualities, a smaller strap size can be used at the same breaking load, i.e. there is a solid material saving and costs are reduced. with a tensile strength of 550 N/mm2 Cyklop Premium is suitable for particularly heavy-duty strapping operations on account of its higher breaking load and optimal strap and edge strength. The Premium strap, which is made from top-quality granules, is very low on consumption and offers not only more meters per coil but also greater safety and this continuously. That not only has an impact on the length of the strap coil but also leads to lower transport and storage costs.

Only a few PET straps available on the market have comparable attributes. In addition, for production reasons our coils never deviate by more than 2 % from the specification quoted. That's guaranteed!

The special surface embossing achieves better strap feeding and constant welding properties. The sealing methods available are friction weld, metal clips and thermo welds. Cyklop Premium, with its tensile strength of 550 N/mm², which is unbeatable in the market, is the first strapping choice for very heavy load units such as printed products, car wheel rims, plasterboards, metal products, wire coils, and plenty more besides. Our jumbo coils are available in lengths of up to 8 km. Cyklop Classic for light and medium applications as well as sharp-edged products keeps its promise: excellent holding power.

For example, it is suitable for corrugated cardboard, construction materials, roof tiles, beverage cans, bales of synthetic fiber and hay, sheet glass in boxes, sawn timber, metal products, and plenty more besides.

Cyklop PET Flex is available in strap widths from 12 mm to 18.5 mm and is ideal for hand tool strapping operations. 8 CYKlOP PET STRAP. CONTINUOUS STRAP TENSION. HOldING POwER AT EVERY METER.

CYKlOP PREMIUM. A lIGHTwEIGHT STRAP THAT IS AS TOUGH AS STEEl ANd wITHSTANdS ANY COMPARISON. Apart from just a few special applications, Cyklop Premium is far superior to steel strap and conventional PET straps. Its higher shock reserve absorbs dynamic loads much more effectively. due to its 11 % elongation tension losses are successfully compensated much more effectively.

Steel strap, on the other hand, fails to recover on account of its low maximum elongation of 1 % – and the load in the cargo space is no longer adequately secured in the event of certain breaking manoeuvres or jolts.

In addition to a high shock reserve and the resulting improvement in holding power, Cyklop PET straps also differ considerably from steel on account of their light weight, coil running time which is seven times longer, and a higher level of occupational safety. Other benefits are: PET strap does not corrode, is gentle on the packages and so it is also suitable for strapping sensitive bales of synthetic fibers and cotton. 9 Steel strap Cyklop Premium Cyklop Classic Tensile strength N/mm2 750–1,000 550 450 Percentage elongation in the elastic range

TOGETHER UNBEATABlY STRONG, EFFICIENT ANd SAFE. In order to perfectly derive benefits from the physical material properties of PET straps the optimal initial tension is just as important as an appropriate combination of hand tools / systems, strapping heads and strap dimensions. All Cyklop products are perfectly coordinated with one another in order to increase their cost-effectiveness and provide your load with maximum securement. The centrepiece of any strapping system is the strapping head itself – on account of its innovative intermittent tensioning technology, our robust and powerful CFH-1 strapping head achieves optimal holding power on the package as a whole.

Modular design that has been proven 1,000 times over, for a very wide range of strapping operations – our XF and XP strapping systems are provided as standard with a basic frame, a control, a CFH-1 strapping head, a strap guide and a KA-5 strap dispenser and can be modified to suit your requirements.

long service lives due to simple strap bobbin change – the Cyklop plastic strap coil dispenser KA-4 Jumbo dT makes it possible to change the PET Jumbo strap coils quickly without any additional lifting gear. Flexible and mobile due to rechargeable battery-operated strapping hand tools – the CHT 400 hand tool, for example, features a higher level of single-handed operation convenience, new environmentally-friendly rechargeable battery technology, a touch display and a high tensioning force of up to 4,000 N. It is a good choice for heavy-duty and mobile strapping operations.
