The Ty-Rap® line of Detectable Cable Ties includes mounting bases made from materials that are identifiable by x-ray equipment, metal detectors and visual detection equipment. Mounting bases are available as two- and four-way adhesive-mount and screw-mount models. Detectable cable ties and accessories are made of either nylon 6.6 (polyamide) or polypropylene, a polymer that gives the product buoyancy for visual detection in liquid processing applications. Both materials contain additives that increase the product's magnetism and density, enabling its recognition by metal detectors and x-ray equipment. The tie's bright blue color makes it clearly perceptible for easy visual detection, especially in food processing applications.
