There are several different types of stainless steel cable ties that have a variety of uses and that respond well to varied environments.

The two most common types of stainless steel cable ties are the roller ball and ladder style. They are available in both coated and uncoated format.  The roller ball tie has a small metal ball that presses down on the tie as it is pulled through a tapered enclosure.  The ladder style tie uses a tooth in clasp that catches in perforations in the tie.

Both types, roller ball and ladder style cable ties can be used effectively in harsh environments, under demanding conditions. These ties can withstand exposure to extreme temperatures, UV light, radiation, vibration, chemicals, fuels and lubricants and salt water.

Stainless steel cable ties provide a secure fastening system with years of longevity and no maintenance.
