Pale Crepe Gold® rubber bands feature the softest stretch and the highest natural-latex rubber content of any comparable product. A higher natural rubber content equates to a lighter-weight band with greater stretchiness and increased longevity; and as a bonus, when buying by the pound, you receive more of what you need for less. Though great as a general-purpose band for a wide range of tasks around the home, office and workplace, these bands are particularly useful for delicate- and pliable-goods packaging applications, from food to musical instruments, fine-art poster-prints to valuable trading cards. Their soft stretch also makes these bands ideal for repetitive tasks where minimizing hand-stress and fatigue or minimizing the potential for repetitive-strain injuries might be desired. Use these bands again and again without worrying about whether they'll remain strong and intact—they're designed for it. Approximate Band Count: 490; Band Trade Size: 64; Band Gauge: 0.04"; Band Width: 0.25".
