UV stabilised cable ties for outdoor use

Are all black cable ties UV stabilised? What is a UV resistant cable tie? We explain the difference between UV resistant and UV stabilised and why they are ideal for outdoor use.

Can you use cable ties outside?

Just as we need protection against the sun UV rays, nylon 6.6 cable ties need to be shielded too. Over time, UV exposure will cause a breakdown in the strength of these cable ties until they become brittle and eventually fracture. Thus, just as we would apply sunscreen when venturing outside for extended periods of time, outdoor installations should also use specialised cable ties that can stand up against the elements.

What are UV resistant cable ties?

UV resistant cable ties are specially designed to not be affected by the ultraviolet rays of the sun, making them perfect for outdoor applications. These cable ties are made from a UV stabilized polyamide material, which offers superior strength and ultraviolet resistance. This makes them suitable for applications where the cable tie will be exposed to direct sunlight or harsh weather conditions. UV resistant cable ties are a great option for applications such as outdoor signage, landscape lighting, and outdoor electrical cable ties.

They are designed to withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. UV resistant cable ties also help to protect your cables from environmental damage, such as oxidation and corrosion. These cable ties are available in a variety of colors and sizes, making them ideal for a wide range of applications. UV resistant cable ties can provide you with durable, reliable solutions for your outdoor applications.
