ABB Ty-Rap TyGenic Antimicrobial Detectable Cable Tie: Inhibitor of Micro-Organisms


ByLauren Willman

Standard Electric and ABB are introducing the first two-piece cable tie, the Ty-Rap TyGenic Antimicrobial Detectable Tie, which is both antimicrobial and detectable.  This breakthrough fastening solution meets the health and safety needs of the contamination sensitive industries. This new tie is molded from an FDA-compliant proprietary nylon resin blend that contains both an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive and detectable particles. The antimicrobial additive is effective against a broad spectrum of micro-organisms, including various bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi, such as mold and mildew.

Features & Benefits:

  • Inhibits microbial growth while also delivering x-ray, metal, and visual detectability
  • Provides a surface on which microbes cannot adhere and replicate
  • Proven to be more than 99% effective in prohibiting common surface microbes from forming on the cable tie as tested by an independent laboratory
  • Made from an FDA and EU food contact-approved, halogen-free nylon 6.6 (polyamide) resin blend
  • UL recognized and RoHS compliant

The detectable particles in the Ty-Rap TyGenic Antimicrobial Detectable Cable Ties help ensure that cable ties won’t end up in products/goods and remain undetected.
