PIN Flame retardant cable ties for rail and air safety standards

Thomas & Betts (part of the ABB group) offers Ty-Rap® cable ties conform to railway and air industry performance and fire safety requirements. The PIN flame retardant (non halogenated) cable ties are based on polyamide 6.6 with a 316 stainless steel locking barb and respect ASTM E162 for surface flammability, E662 for smoke density and E1354 for heat and smoke release, Boeing and Bombardier standards for combustion-generated gases and NFPA130 standard for railways (Fixed Guideway Transit and Passenger Systems).

The ties meet UL94V-0 or UL94V-2, temperature and UV resistance depending on specifications. Smooth and rounded edges avoid pressure points and solid bodies without notches eliminate cables stress, so ensuring longer safe cable life. Ribbed and stippled surfaces prevent cables moving under vibration or shock.
