The cable ties are particularly well-suited for applications in food and beverage processing, the pharmaceutical industry, for chemical and compounds manufacturing, tire and airbag manufacturing, as well as for use in all other contamination-sensitive industries using detection systems to track down prohibited foreign materials in finished products. The halogen-free cable ties and accessories are made of detectable nylon (NDT) and buoyant polypropylene (PDT) for liquid-processing applications and are FDA compliant, which means that the products are intended for use in the proximity of food processing, handling and packaging operations. Both versions are supplied in a unique bright blue colour, which increases their visual detectability. These detectable cable ties are very helpful in putting into place an effective HACCP System (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) in production processes. The HACCP directive is a systematic preventative approach to food production safety that addresses physical, chemical and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection.

Facts For Decision-Makers:

  • detectable by X-rays
  • FDA compliant
  • effective for HACCP
