Tying Together Safety & Corrosion Resistance
Wed, 12/19/2012 - 8:43am
Thomas & Betts’ Ty-Rap® ball-lock cable ties provide greater safety than other stainless steel cable ties by featuring a low-smoke, halogen-free polyester coating, which releases fewer toxins if burned. The company says that the ties also offer:
- Rolled edges on the strap, which eliminate the risk of damage to cables and injury to installers.
- The polyester coating provides the cable ties, constructed of marine-grade 316 stainless steel, with additional protection against corrosion, including corrosion from contact with dissimilar materials, as well as against impact, abrasion and cracking.
- The ties also are resistant to extreme temperatures.
