C&P cable ties are tested according International standard for cable ties CEI EN 62275. Strength tests are made at constant speed of 25mm/min and the maximum force declared is kept steady for 60 sec. The standard conditions defined for the tensile test are referred to an ambient temperature of 23°C and a relative humidity of 50%. It is important to underline that the values arising from those laboratory tests may not be representative of the resistance to the loads of real installations, due to the presence of external factors (high humidity, vibrations, high temperatures, etc.).
All polymers, including polyamides used for the production of cable ties, are sensitive to high temperatures, becoming therefore fragile and sensitive to vibrations. The max suggested installation temperature for standard cable ties is 60°C, while the max service temperature for continuous use is 85°C. The min suggested installation temperature for standard cable ties in Polyamide 6.6 is -10°C, while the min service temperature for continuous use is -40°C. Heat Resistance cable ties (C&P codes 53xx T) are made of a specially added compound to provide an extra heat resistance (max service temperature for continuous use up to 125°C) These cable ties are available in black and natural colour (the natural is more similar to aquamarine green colour due to the special polymer used). Belturing Plus (C&P codes 64xx) ensure a greater resistance in installations at low temperatures (up to a minimum temperature of -30 ° C). 2-LOCK™ cable ties (C&P codes 12xx and 13xx) ensure an exceptional resistance in installations at low temperatures (up to a minimum temperature of -40 ° C)
