Raw Material

Nylon 66 Grade Cable Ties

In Cable Ties, there are two types of raw material available in the market from which cable ties are made Nylon 6 & Nylon 66 grade as they both are made from synthetic polymers with the number describing the type & quantity of polymer chains in their chemical structure. All Nylon material, including 6 & 66, are semi-crystalline and carries good strength, durability for various Industrial Applications.

Our own brand Clamps-N-Clamps Cable Ties are made from high grade polymer Nylon 66 Grade material which have Good strength, High Quality, Higher Temperature rating with long terms performance for Indoor & Outdoor usage.

Nylon Properties

As polyamide, Nylon 66, whilst having its own separate and distinct benefits, do share many of the same core properties:

  • High mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and toughness.
  • Good fatigue resistance.
  • High mechanical damping ability.
  • Good sliding properties.
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Good resistance to high energy radiation.
  • Good machinability.

Comparison in Nylon Grade Cable Ties –

 Sr  Nylon 6  Nylon 66
 1  Less Crystalline  More Crystalline
 2  Lower mold shrinkage  Higher with greater mold shrinkage
 3  Lower melting point  Higher melting point
 4  Lower heat deflection temperature  Higher heat deflection temperature
 5  Higher water absorption rate  Lower water absorption rate
 6  Poor chemical resistance to acids  Higher chemical resistance to acids
