The Acme X Seal is a versatile smooth ribbon plastic pull-tight seal manufactured from Polypropylene material. The design features rolled heat staking technology to secure the metal spring insert to the body, which provides clear evidence of tampering if forced open or cut. The seal can be manufactured with a Short Tag (ST) or Long Tag (LT) in three different lengths and with a 2mm diameter ribbon making this seal ideal for most applications particularly where there are small sealing apertures.
