PVDF-Kynar® cable ties tyraps
Strong-Ty™ Kynar® cable ties are ideal for severe environments where combinations of high temperature, corrosion, UV radiation and mechanical stresses lead to rapid failure of commodity plastics such as polyamide (nylon), polyethylene or polypropylene. Unlike these common plastics, Kynar® PVDF will not ignite and burn in normal atmospheric conditions and does not generate smoke. These properties allow Strong-Ty™ cable ties to meet the National Electrical Code (NFPA-70A) and UL94V-0 requirements for installation in building plenums.
Material properties of PVDF allow the sterilization of Strong-Ty™ Kynar® cable ties by radiation, chemical or autoclave methods without loss of strength or flexibility. Designed with a flexible internal hinge and a curved tip, Strong-Ty™ cable ties are easy to use and provide consistent and reliable performance. Each injection-molded tie is individually identified so any performance variation can be tracked and corrected.
All our Strong-Ty™ cable ties are available in natural unpigmented Kynar® PVDF. These cable ties are ideal for corrosive process applications where test data shows that exposure to chemicals such as hydrochloric, sulfuric and hydrofluoric acids result in no loss of physical properties. Excellent non-flammability properties and heat resistance make these cable ties a better choice for organizing wires, cables and hoses in plenum spaces, under the hood and in appliance and computer cabinet interiors. Strong-Ty™ cable ties are durable and resist abrasion and mechanical damage during and after installation.
Our cable ties are made from polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) thermoplastic with 100% virgin material. We do not use any plasticizers, heat stabilizers, regrind, colorants, modifiers or UV stabilizers. Some elastomers have additives that desorb over time leading to loss of mechanical properties and embrittlement. Other elastomers such as natural rubber oxidize and lose tensile strength and elongation. None of these situations are issues with our Strong-TY Kynar PVDF cable ties.
We sell our ties into the photovoltaic market for wire-management applications. These ties are subjected to wide temperature variations along with UV, salt and moisture exposure. Under these environmental conditions, we provide a 25-year service life guarantee. For cable ties sitting on a shelf, we can easily provide the same 25-year service life guarantee. Without hesitation.
