Push mount tie is the perfect solution for this situation. Besides, it is easy to use and carry.
3. Marker Tie
Marker tie has the advantage of mark the information for the users. People can use the oil pen onto the flag of the tie. It is easy to identify what the article the tie is bundling is. And it is also very easy to know the details of the thing we are bundling.
The raw material of the marker tie is Nylon 66. It has got the UL approval. This material has a high resistance to corrosion and strong chemicals.
4. Double Ended Cable Tie
Just as the above introduction, our double loop cable tie also owns a high ability to resist chemicals and corrosion. It can work in heat and cold environment.
Besides all the advantages, its biggest feature is that it can make the wiring bundle into parallel bundling. It is just because this kind of product has two heads. The double heads can both lock.
So double loop cable tie could be used to fasten one wire or two.
5. Releasable Tie
When we talk about the self-locking tie, we may find it is difficult to release it by our hands. Especially, when the tie is locked, it is nearly impossible to lose it.
To solve this, our clever scientists have designed the releasable tie. It can release the tie after locking. So when we use the tie to bundle things, we can easily to release it after its firm locking.
This product can be reused. It saves a lot of resources to produce a new product. And this is very environmentally friendly.
6. PET Non-Core Nylon Cable Tie
This kind of product is featured for the material PET. It is totally safe and environment-friendly. The material has no damage to the environment.
It is used of the AC and the DC wires. The high precised machines will use these products.
7. PET Iron Core Zip Tie
It is also named as the iron zip tie. It has good flexibility. And this tie is resistant to the acid and oxidation. It is anti-corrosion. Besides, it is difficult to rust. This is totally different from the iron products.
It is used for bundling kinds of wires and cables. And the food plastic bags, children’s toys, and the gardening will use it.
8. Beaded Zip Tie
The material of the beaded zip tie is the same as the double sided zip ties. It is Nylon 66. It has steady performance. It is difficult to corrode. And it is resistant to the aging.
Moreover, it belongs to releasable zip ties. So it can reuse after the locking.
There are many kinds of colors for users to choose from. The natural color is white.
What is the storing conditions of the double loop cable ties?
Most customers prefer to buy a big quantity of zip ties, instead of buying several bags. So it is very necessary to know the storing conditions of double loop zip ties.
1. Make the product in the sealing bags.
They are made by the top level Nylon 66. The material of nylon has the feature of absorbing moisture. And it is also easy to release moisture.
So when we buy a lot of plastic zip ties, it is needed to store them in sealed plastic bags. The ties will be in a good state in the packaged bags. Thus the sealing storing of self-locking cable ties is very important.
When we open a bag of zip ties, it is better to seal it at once. And this bag is suggested to be used up as soon as possible.
2. Choose the storing temperature and humidity in the range.
In addition, besides the sealing storing of the double loop zip ties, the ties also need a good temperature.
As we all know, the nylon material has the advantages of high tensile strength, good insulation. And it is good at resisting to acid and corrosion. It is difficult to aging.
But we must pay attention to its working temperature range. The common nylon has the best state in the range of -20°C to 80°C. And the superior double head cable tie is from -40°C to 120°C.
The best temperature is about 23°C. And the best humidity is above 50%. We should not make the ties near the heat. For example, we should not keep them near the heater.
Moreover, it is not good to expose the product in the sun. The UV sunlight will make the ties have a short service life.
Why are the same color double cable ties different in the appearance?
We know that the natural color of them is white. But not all the white color ties are the same in the appearance. Some may be a bit yellow.
Some users may ask, will the yellow color affect the quality of the product? The answer is not certain. Some yellow product may be good in quality. Some may have problems in quality.
For example, heat resisting double cable ties have the raw material of organic copper inside. After a period, the color of the zip ties may change. The white color may get a bit yellow.
Don’t worry about it. It is natural for the heat resisting ties. It has no influence on quality.
And not all the white color plastic ties are good in the quality. Superior quality product may look white with a bit yellow. The very white product may have the brightener.
The brightener can make them whiter. But it can not make sure the quality.
What are the methods to identify the quality of the double-headed cable ties?
Nowadays, there are many zip tie suppliers on the market. And the quality of these manufacturers is not all the same. Some are good in the quality. Some are bad in quality.
So it is important to get the methods to identify the quality.
1. The Appearance:
The nylon zip tie is used for the bundling. Its fastening part is the key part. So the key parts of the tie is the tooth and the head.
The superior plastic tie has good teeth. And the appearance of it is smooth. There is no spot or some uneven gloss. So the quality of the raw material will also be very important.
For the automatic machines, they need ties with superior appearance and super high tensile strength. The body of the tie and the head must have high tensile strength. Otherwise, the machines cannot finish automatic tasks.
2. The Performance:
There are two factors of the performance of nylon zip ties.
1). Tensile Strength:
When people are going to see the quality of the tie, usually, they would like to see the tensile strength of the product. In general, people will give an outer force. And they will keep the force increasing. When the force comes to some point, the double head cable tie will break.
Now we can see what the force is. This force is the tensile strength of this zip tie. But there is one thing I want to let you know. The outer force must in the tensile strength range of the double head cable tie.
2). The Flexibility:
In general, the flexibility of cable tie is in inverse ratio to the tensile strength. So it is a difficult task to ensure both the flexibility and the tensile strength. When the tie has high tensile strength, the manufactures must to keep good flexibility at the same time.
Usually, the flexibility of the nylon cable tie is qualified, when the tie has no break wrinkles after 10 times 180° folding. And after 24 hours’ heating at the temperature of 85°C, if the common nylon tie 180° fold, it has no wrinkles. This tie can be qualified.
For the heat resistant tie, it should be no wrinkles when 180° fold for 10 times, after 24 hour’s heating at the temperature of 130°C.
After knowing this, to be a qualified double head cable tie is so difficult. But don’t worry, the skills of the zip tie manufacturers are very advanced.
They can produce zip ties with high tensile strength and good flexibility.
