nylon cable ties

Have you bought a zip tie which you think is a great buy but ended up being disappointed? When do we need zip ties? Which brand will you choose that will suit your needs?  

These questions are typically asked by customers who are seeking a reliable company for zip ties. Are you a company that produce or manufacture cable ties?

Do you know the raw material of nylon zip ties? Here’s something you should read!

plastic zip ties can be bought at any internet and hardware shop or home depot. The best manufacturers offer a wide selection of wire zip ties. Manufacturers of nylon zip ties use only the  best nylon materials so they can provide high-quality products for all of your cable and cable management needs.

Nylon 6 or Nylon 66 is commonly used for textile or plastic industries because they are durable, has high mechanical strength, can withstand even the extreme weather condition, chemical- resistant, and rigid. Nylon is a poly amide which has properties of thermal stability, high tensile strengths, good appearance and a light material that can used in a wide variety of applications. zip ties are made of nylon so they are guaranteed to be long lasting and tough.

This article will give you an idea of the best companies that provide nylon materials for zip tie makers. Let’s take a look at the top providers of nylon materials below:

Ultron and Vydyne PA66 by ASCEND

Zip tie nylon

BASF wire zip ties material

Another leading brand  is ULTRAMID by the expert company called BASF. Their definition of high-performing materials is based on their customer’s performance parameters to make them successful int their operation. You might have heard of these other trademark bands from BASF: Ecoflex, Ecovio, Elastollan, Neopor, Nypel, Petra, Ultradur, Ultraform and Ultrason.

Their trademark brand for polyamides nylon, ULTRAMID, take pride in providing nylon materials like PA 6, PA 66 and PA 66/6. They are widely used in several applications because they are exceptional for their high mechanical strength, rigidity and thermal stability. Ultramid materials  are viable for good impact resistance even at low temperatures. You are sure to have quality output due to its -hassle-free processing.

Here’s a detailed explanation of their Nylon products taken from their website:

PA 6 (Nylon 6)

Ultramid B: PA 6 (unreinforced) is a tough and strong material affording parts with good damping characteristics and high shock resistance even in the dry state and at low temperatures. PA 6 is distinguished by particularly high impact resistance and ease of processing.

PA 66 (Nylon 66)

Ultramid A: Among the unreinforced polyamides, PA 66 along with Ultramid T is the material with greatest hardness, rigidity, abrasion resistance and thermostability. It is one of the preferred materials for parts subject to mechanical and thermal stresses in electrical, mechanical, automotive and chemical engineering.

PA 66/6 (Nylon 66/6)

Ultramid C: This is the name given to copolyamides made from PA 6 and PA 66 building blocks. The formulation of the copolymer provides enhanced flowability in injection molding and higher clarity in film extrusion applications.

Here are benefits of Ultramid polyamides (Nylon):

  • high mechanical strength
  • rigidity
  • thermal stability
  • afford good impact resistance even at low temperatures
  • advantageous sliding friction properties
  • problem-free processing

BASF nylon material is also a good choice for biodegradable zip ties.
