The Band

MSD-Band – Leader in Technology

The MSD-Band is a premium quality, low powder latex resistive exercise band. Train every part of your body, resulting in better range of motion strength and more complete stimulation.

Production

The production of MSD-Band starts deep in the humid forests of Malaysia, where the best and strongest trees provide the natural latex rubber that will be processed from a milky fluid to your preferred resistive exercise band

When a tree is 5–6 years old, harvesting can begin: incisions are being made orthogonally in the bark of the tree, just deep enough to tap the latex vessels without harming the tree’s growth. The fluid is collected in small buckets, a process known as rubber tapping.

Only the best quality latex is being selected to go to the MSD-Band factory. There, production starts under the constant supervision of a team of scientists, ensuring an immaculate product quality. Latex sheets are produced, powdered, washed, dried and cut to the exact width.

Each batch of latex sheeting that is produced, is subject to the meticulous inspection of our scientists by a series of laboratory experiments: color-coding, dryness, tensile strength, tearing resistance, snapping resistance, … During the rolling process, a 100% visual inspection is being conducted on both sides of the band. Indeed, before leaving the factory, every MSD-band has been completely analysed, checked and examined to ensure maximum product quality.

Did you know that rubber trees combat greenhouse gases and thereby slowing down global warming? Additionally, latex harvesting helps prevent deforestation… “This is why we are not afraid to use the words ‘premium quality’ when referring to your MSD-Band”

Snap-Stop® makes exercising with bands very safe. The unique feature/benefit will avoid snapping, even if there’s a cut or puncture in your MSD-Band or MSD-Band Global. While you’re working out with a resistive exercise band, the band has to endure extremely high tensions. A small cut can have a big consequence… Our MSD-Band and MSD-Band Global are unique in their field. Thanks to extended research and development we achieved a special production process. This process results in a product that won’t snap, even if there’s a cut or puncture and it’s exposed to high forces (maximum elongation at 300%). This does not apply to a very old band, or band that has been exposed outdoors for some time, as well as abused band. First advise still remains to use a fresh and clean sheet of band.
