What is Cable Ties? What do you use them for?

KACAB has cable ties for you!

To begin with, KACAB’s cable ties are a type of semi-permanent bandage to explain. A cable tie is another type of fastener, for holding objects together, mainly electrical cables or wires. Because of their comparatively low cost and ease of use, they are ubiquitous in a wide range of applications. Originally, they were first used to hold wires together in airplanes, but have since gained many other uses. However, these are mainly made of plastic, usually nylon, but they are also available in stainless steel. There are bands in stainless steel, with or without coating, these are often used, for example, for outdoor use and in thus demanding environments. Our tapes with metal content are particularly often used in the pharmaceutical and food industries as an effect of this.

What does cable tie mean?

A cable tie or strap also known as a cable tie is a type of fastening element, to likewise hold objects together, that is, for example, electrical cables or wires.

Design and use

There are many different variants and designs, but most have the same principle – a belt that has teeth on one side. At one end of the band there is a lock into which the band is threaded. When the strap is tightened, a locking flap in the lock will run over the teeth and prevent the strap from opening. Last but not least, this product is also not normally intended for reuse.

A tool (cable tie gun) can certainly be used to apply a cable tie with a specific degree of tension. To clarify, the tool can cut off the excess “tail” flush with the head to avoid a sharp edge that could otherwise cause damage to emphasize what the effect will be.

Extend the life even further

To increase the resistance to ultraviolet light for outdoor applications, nylon contains at least 2% carbon black. Thanks to this to obtain 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. Companies often use stainless steel bands 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 also uses bands that are particularly flexible for, among other things, tying up plants to supporting sticks. Laundries and the clothing industry seal e.g. often their garment/laundry bags with sealable bands.
