Cable ties are straps used for bundling things together. They are designed with a locking function, which means they can only get tighter and cannot be untied. There are metal cable ties (usually made of stainless steel) and plastic cable ties (usually made of nylon), commonly used for cables in electromechanical products, computers, electronic devices, automotive wire harnesses, and more. Cable ties are known for their fast binding, good insulation, self-locking fastening, and easy use.
Cable ties are a common commodity in daily life and can be seen everywhere. Many people are familiar with nylon cable ties, which are made of strong nylon and have a strong binding force. However, there are also stainless steel cable ties made of stainless steel metal.
Stainless steel cable ties are mainly used for industrial bundling and fixing of stainless steel industrial products. Due to the use of stainless steel material, they are corrosion-resistant, sturdy, and provide stable binding. At the same time, stainless steel cable ties are not limited by the shape and size of the bundled objects. The good binding performance ensures the safe fixation of the bundled objects. The stainless steel material is strong, corrosion-resistant, and heat-resistant, ensuring the environmental aesthetics and fire protection requirements.
Generally, the commonly used stainless steel cable ties are made of 304 stainless steel (customization is also supported). Therefore, when purchasing, you can first communicate with the store about the required material, size, and engineering requirements of the stainless steel cable ties, and select the appropriate material based on the engineering needs. Specifically, the following three points can be considered:
First, confirm the situation of the objects to be bundled (such as size, shape, and whether high temperature resistance is needed): whether it is a highly corrosive environment, an indoor environment, or a normal natural environment. The material can be selected based on the environment.
Then, determine the desired style of cable ties, such as coiled stainless steel straps, self-locking stainless steel cable ties, plastic-coated stainless steel cable ties, bead-type stainless steel cable ties, and format-type stainless steel cable ties, etc.
Finally, the brand needs to be determined. First, check whether the products of this brand are complete, as it may be difficult to purchase matching products from the same brand in the future. Choose a brand with quality assurance, as some cable ties may use cheaper raw materials, indicating that the manufacturer may cut corners.
