Metal Content Cable Ties


The metal content tie is a cable tie specifically designed for use in the food and pharmaceutical and chemical processing industries.

  • Can be used as part of HACCP process
  • Blue in colour to assist in detection (RAL 5007)
  • Greatly reduces the risk of contamination
