KACAB’s cable ties are a type of semi-permanent bandage. A cable tie is a type of fastener, for holding objects together, mainly electrical cables or wires. Due to its low cost and ease of use, they are found everywhere in a wide range of applications. Originally, they were used to hold lines together in aircraft, but have since been given many other uses. These are almost always made of plastic, usually nylon, but they are also available in stainless steel. Stainless steel strips, with or without coating, are often used in outdoor use and in demanding environments. Our metal-containing tapes are used in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
What does cable tie mean?
A cable tie or strap, also known as a cable tie, is a type of fastener used to hold objects together, such as electrical cables or wires.
Design and use
There are many different variants and designs, but most have the same principle – a band that has teeth on one side. At one end of the strap is a lock into which the strap is threaded. When the strap is tightened, a locking flap in the lock will run over the teeth and prevent the strap from opening. The product is not normally intended for reuse.
A tool (cable tie gun) can be used to apply a cable tie with a specific degree of tension. The tool can cut off the excess “tail” evenly with the head to avoid a sharp edge that could otherwise cause injury.
Extend service life
To increase the resistance to ultraviolet light for outdoor applications, nylon contains at least 2% carbon black. This is to get the greatest possible resistance to UV radiation and extend the life of the cable tie. Blue is supplied to the pharmaceutical and food industry, among other things, and contains metal shavings so that they can be detected by industrial metal detectors. Stainless steel strips are available with a plastic-coated surface, this to prevent contact corrosion between different materials. Stainless steel belts are often used in extreme environments with, for example, high temperatures, acids, etc. Bands made of ETFE (Tefzel) are used in really extreme environments where high temperatures are present. The plant industry sometimes uses ribbons that are especially flexible to, among other things, tie up plants to supporting sticks. Laundries and the clothing industry often seal their clothes / laundry bags with sealable straps.
