Heat Stabilized

Heat Stabilized Cable Ties are recommended for applications when resistance to higher temperatures is necessary. While general purpose Nylon 6/6 works effectively in many applications, the addition of effective heat stabilizing material enables Heat Stabilized Cable Ties to perform effectively in temperatures up to 221 degree F. Heat Stabilized Cable Ties are black in color. The one piece construction allows for consistent performance and reliability.

Extreme Temperature

Extreme Temperature Cable Ties are able to withstand bitterly cold temperatures, as well as direct sunlight, making them versatile and extremely tough. They have extended UV Sunlight protection. The one piece constructions provides consistent performance and reliability. Extreme Temperature Cable Ties perform effectively in temperatures down to -20°C and
are the only ties that can be installed in temperatures as low as -20°C (-4°F).


Although weaker than general purpose nylon 6/6 (about 37%), Tefzel is resistant to a wide range of chemicals such as concentrated hydrofluoric and sulfuric acids. It is also a low water absorbing material, therefore, moisture has a minimal effect on it. Tefzel is radiation resistant up to 100 megarads and meets IEEE requirement 333. Tefzel also withstands high temperatures, ultraviolet light exposure, and meets UL flammability requirement 94V-0.

Plenum - Halar®

Halar is similar to Tefzel in performance. Its outstanding characteristic is a lower smoke density when burned. This makes Halar more desirable for use in areas where smoke generation is a concern, as when bundling wire in plenum spaces.


Designed for harsh environments where a cable tie material is required to hold up to chemical, high radiation, and/or high operating temperature environment. They are made of a non conductive material that is excellent for high temperature applications up to 500°F (260°C). They have a flammability rating of V-0 with low smoke and toxicity. PEEK material meets MIL specification MIL-P-46183, and is approved for use by The Department of Defense.
