Ty-Rap® Cable Ties

Innovative design and engineered materials make Ty-Rap® cable ties the perfect fastening solution where performance really matters.

ABB’s broad offering of Ty-Rap® cable ties make the task of fastening, bundling, clamping, and managing wires easier and quicker for industrial applications, construction, communications, utility, and OEM professionals, as well as home improvement specialists and do-it-yourself enthusiasts.

Ty-Rap cable ties provide superior performance in applications such as resistance against extreme temperatures, flames, continuous sunlight, UV radiation, aggressive chemicals, or heavy tensile strength requirements. ABB’s Ty-Rap has a cable tie solution for your application needs.

First patented in 1958, to bundle wiring in airplanes, the Ty-Rap® cable tie brand remains a benchmark of excellence and innovation in wire management. ABB supplies more than 250 different varieties of Ty-Rap cable ties to meet the specific needs of a range of different industries, such as oil and gas, food and beverage, automotive, marine, and even aerospace.

Rocket
Did you know?

NASA’s Perseverance rover touched down on Mars in February 2021 equipped with Ty-Rap cable ties made of a sophisticated fluoropolymer. Previous rovers Curiosity, Spirit, and Opportunity also used Ty-Rap cable ties.

Benefits

The Grip of Steel®: Ty-Rap's non-hygroscopic stainless steel locking device ensures maximum strength and extended useful life. Locking barb: 316-grade stainless steel.

Fewer stress points: Ty-Rap's smooth, notch-less body reduces the number of stress points to increase its useful life, while ribs and stipples grip the bundle and prevent slipping specifically in vibrating applications.

Snag-free installation: The low-profile head and its oval shape make it easier to pull bundled cables through bulkheads. Easier on your hands, too.

Performance in extreme & harsh environments: available in multiple materials to operate in corrosive, chemicals, hot and cold, and other demanding environments.
