Unicrimp Metal Content Cable Ties help reduce contamination



Unicrimp, part of the Scolmore Group of companies, continues to expand its cable accessories portfolio with the addition of a new range of Metal Content Cable Ties.

Designed specifically for use in the food and pharmaceuticals industries, Metal Content Cable Ties are produced using a unique manufacturing process, which involves the inclusion of a metallic pigment throughout the length of the cable tie and enables even small 'cut-off' sections of the tie to be detected by standard metal-detecting equipment.  They are blue in colour, which assists in visual detection and helps reduce the risk of contamination.  This makes them ideally suited for the installation of cabling both in the plant and within areas adjacent to the manufacturing process.

The addition of this new range was made as a result of increasing enquiries from customers for a product they can use within these specific environments. 

The new cable ties are made from self-extinguishing nylon with a UL Flammability Rating of 94HB, with total metal content dispersed throughout the tie.  They are BS EN 62275 compliant and have an operational temperature range of -40⁰C to +85⁰C (max), making them suitable for installation into a wide range of different applications/environments. 

They are available in a choice of four sizes – 150mm x 3.6mm; 200mm x 4.6mm; 280mm x 4.8mm and 385mm x 4.8mm - and come packaged in polybags containing 100 units.
