TACKING BANDS - Frequently Asked Questions
How are the Tacking Bands Made?
Our SsCustom Tacking Bands are made from precision laser cutting out of 304 Stainless Tube. They come in a range of sizes from 1.5’’ through to 6’’.
Can I choose what Tacking Band sizes I want?

What is the purpose of a Tacking Band, and how does it work?
A Tacking Band is designed to hold pipe work together securely during welding or fabrication. It clamps onto the pipe, allowing for precise alignment and tack welding. Afterward, it can be easily removed or stretched off. It's an essential tool to ensure the accuracy and quality of your pipe-related projects.
What's the difference between a Tacking Band and a Slim Band?
While both Tacking Bands and Slim Bands serve a similar purpose of holding pipes, there are key distinctions. Tacking Bands are ideal for joining pipes and bends with straight sections, requiring 18mm of straight pipe on each side to clamp. Slim Bands are designed for pipes without straight sections, making them perfect for tight and tricky pipe work like headers.
Can I use multiple Tacking Bands or Slim Bands at once?
Yes, Tacking Bands have a strong grip and can clamp multiple bends at once, making them suitable for various projects. In contrast, Slim Bands are recommended for holding a single bend at a time due to their narrower width.
What materials are your Tacking Bands and Slim Bands made from?
Both our Tacking Bands and Slim Bands are crafted from high-quality 304 stainless steel, ensuring durability and resistance to corrosion.
What is the purpose of C-Grips and how do they complement Tacking Bands?
C-Grips are used to clamp Tacking Bands securely, enhancing their effectiveness in holding pipe work together during welding or fabrication. They are essential accessories for optimising the use of Tacking Bands.
