Black and white cable ties

The black and white cable ties with inner gear rack are very versatile, and can be used for numerous applications in multiple industries. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, enabling an optimal fastening of any element, such as cable harnesses, pipes and/or hoses.

The black cable ties, manufactured from polyamide with a black additive, provide greater resistance to ultraviolet radiation, making them suitable for outdoor applications. The white cable ties (natural) are suitable for indoor applications.

They are ideally suited for use in installations requiring high resistance to alkalis, oils, greases, oil by-products or chlorinated solvents. However, they offer limited resistance to acids and no resistance to phenols. See range

Characteristics and advantages

Detail of the ergonomic design of the cable tie

Fast and simple installation. The ergonomic design of the flexible tape makes for smooth and easy threading.

Cable tie head detail

High performance. The design of the head ensures high resistance to traction, guaranteeing strong tensioning. Up to 122.3 kg* of breaking load under EN 50146.

*For cable ties that are 12 mm wide.

Detail of the internal teeth of the cable tie

Inner gear rack. The design of the inner gear rack ensures an optimal tightening of the cable tie without damaging the object being secured.

Cable tie marking detail

Maximum quality and guarantees The quality of INDEX® cable ties is guaranteed with the highest quality standards, thanks to their certification under the UNE-EN 62275 standard, which has UL approval and allows for CE marking.

Coloured cable ties

Manufactured in 6.6 polyamide, the coloured cable ties make it quick and easy to identify cables, pipes and/or hoses and to visually organise the work space.

Available in brown, yellow, blue, red, green and grey, the cable ties come in a wide range of sizes and are easy to install both manually and mechanically. See range

Two linked Index® brand detectable cable ties

Detectable cable ties

Detectable cable ties are especially designed for use in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, and in any others with applications that must comply with the requirements of the HACCP* methodology (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).

Manufactured in 6.6 Polyamide with metal particles, their magnetic properties allow them to be detected by a metal detector or X-ray inspection equipment. And their unique blue colour makes them easy to detect visually.

The range includes various sizes from 2.5 x 100 cm to 7.6 x 370 cm. They are suitable for working temperatures between -40 ºC and +85 ºC. See range

*The HACCP methodology (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) is the food safety system used to identify all the potential hazards in a food's ingredients and production processes.

Triple detection: magnetic, X-ray and visual

Triple detection

The cable ties are prevented from fully or partially slipping through the process using the triple detection system, thanks to the metal particles and visual detection.

Recommendations for using and storing cable ties

INDEX® cable ties are manufactured in high quality polyamide, a hygroscopic plastic material, which means that the material absorbs and loses water depending on the external conditions (humidity and temperature). To guarantee correct handling and optimal conservation of the polyamide, the bags of cable ties contain the proper level of humidity.

We recommend the following to ensure correct product behaviour:

Pictogram Do not open the bag until ready to use

Do not open the bag until using them, and once open use them as soon as possible or store them in hermetic plastic bags.

Pictogram Optimal temperature and relative humidity conditions

Optimal storage conditions: 23ºC temperature and 50% relative humidity.

Pictogram Do not store near a heat source

Do not store near heat sources.

Pictogram Do not expose directly to the sun

Do not expose to direct sunlight.

Properties of 6.6 Polyamide

Polyamide is one of the most common thermoplastic synthetic materials in injection processes for high quality products, as it can be moulded at hot temperatures without loss, chemical decomposition or other adverse changes.

It is commonly known as Nylon®, a name created and owned by the company Dupont.

Polyamide is a hygroscopic plastic material, which means the material absorbs and loses water depending on the external conditions (humidity and temperature). It is very important to ensure products are stored correctly. Please read the storage instructions carefully.

If the water content of the cable tie changes once installed, the cable tie will hold firm, because the changes to its mechanical properties that depend on the water content do not affect it.

  • Working temperature -40ºC to +85ºC
  • Maximum permissible temperature +110ºC in a short time period
  • Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) +27ºC
  • Dielectric resistance 50.000 volts/mm
  • Installation temperature -10ºC to +85ºC
  • Melting point +260ºC  
  • Flammability ratio UL94 class V2
