Ty-Rap TyGenic Antimicrobial Detectable Cable Ties

Ty-Rap TyGenic Antimicrobial Detectable Cable Ties

In response to the needs of customers in food and beverage processing, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and other contamination-sensitive industries, ABB introduces the industry’s first two-piece cable tie that is both antimicrobial and detectable.

The Ty-Rap® TyGenic™ antimicrobial detectable cable tie is molded from an FDA-compliant proprietary nylon resin blend that contains both an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive and detectable particles. The antimicrobial additive is effective against a broad spectrum of micro-organisms, including various bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi, such as mold and mildew.

Note: Ty-Rap TyGenic™ antimicrobial detectable cable ties provide no antimicrobial inhibitory activity beyond the protection of the cable ties themselves. They do not provide protection against specific pathogenic organisms, nor do they prevent the growth of bacteria on adjacent or nearby surfaces. The antimicrobial efficacy of the material is designed to last for the life of the cable tie under normal use conditions.
