What is the Strongest Cable Tie?

The strongest Cable Tie that KT provides is the 304 Stainless Steel Cable Tie.

KT delivers the industry‘s strongest coated stainless steel cable ties and stainless steel banding in a variety of lengths and thicknesses. Highly chemical and corrosion resistant, KT stainless steel ties and stainless steel banding are ultra-reliable in the harshest offshore environments. Installation tooling completes the system, allowing for increased productivity on the job.

About 304 Stainless Steel Cable Ties

High grade 304 grade stainless steel is generally designed for use in harsh environments. Type 304 is an all-purpose austenitic, low carbon 18-8 chromium-nickel stainless steel. It has good corrosion resistance and weld ability. Type 304 is the most widely used stainless steel.

It is found in chemical and food processing equipment, hospital and paper mill equipment, heat exchanges, etc. Stainless Steel cable ties are available in Standard Duty and Heavy Duty and are available in packs of 100.

Carton sizes vary depending on the size of the cable tie.

How are Stainless Steel Cable Ties Applied?

Cable Ties can be applied by hand, or by using a Cable Tie Gun, depending on what the Cable Tie is being used for. A Cable Tie Gun is a tensioning device or tool that is used to apply a cable tie with a specific degree of tension. The tool may cut off the excess Cable Tie with the head in order to avoid a sharp edge which might otherwise cause injury. Some applications require that a Cable Tie Gun is used, due to requiring a specific tension to meet specific standards and requirements.

What is a Stainless Steel Cable Tie?

Cable ties are usually used as fasteners. A ratcheting system allows the ties to be tightened without causing damage to the individual cables or wires. Cable Ties may also be known as ‘Zip Ties’.

Cable Ties are commonly used to harness and bundle items, usually wires. Functioning like straps, cable ties are available in miniature sizes for holding small loads, and are also fabricated in long lengths and strong tensile strengths for large items or bundles. Most Cable Ties feature serrated “teeth” on one end, which function by locking inside the head, located on the other side of the strap.

Once the pointed tip of the cable tie has been pulled through the case and past the ratchet, it is prevented from being pulled back; the resulting loop may only be pulled tighter. This allows several cables to be bound together into a cable tree. Cable Ties can be customised in numerous colors or dimensions, according to application requirements.

Additionally, cable ties may be UV-protected or manufactured using 304 & 316 Stainless Steel.
