Ty-Rap™ cable ties

Did you know…
...ABB’s Ty-Rap™ cable ties are keeping wires in the latest Mars rover organized and safely secured?
Did_you_know_microsite_v2_TyRap

The Ty-Rap cable tie was developed in 1958 by Thomas & Betts, which is now part of ABB, to simplify the tedious process of bundling large wiring in aircrafts. Since then, more than 28 billion Ty-Rap cable ties have been produced. Evolving over the years, this uniquely simple product has become an essential part of the modern world. Unlike plastic cable ties, the Ty-Rap cable tie’s stainless-steel locking device, the Grip of Steel, helps ensure maximum strength. From securing engine cables of Formula 1 race cars to binding cables in solar power farms, its uses are limited only by the boundaries of human ingenuity.

ABB supplies more than 250 different varieties of the ubiquitous cable tie to meet the specific needs of a range of different industries, such as oil and gas, food and beverage, automotive, marine and even aerospace. NASA’s Perseverance rover touched down on Mars in February 2021 equipped with Ty-Rap cable ties made of a sophisticated fluoropolymer. Previous rovers Curiosity, Spirit and Opportunity also used the ties.

Ty-Rap cable ties come in heat-resistant varieties, along with product lines that are resistant to UV rays, harsh chemicals, and extreme heat and cold. A version has been infused with special materials to make it easily detectable if it falls into food processing lines. And a variety of related Ty-Fastcable ties have been designed to kill microbes on the tie’s surface.

Key facts:

  • World’s first self-clinching cable tie
  • Available in more than 250 different varieties and multiple materials
  • Maximum strength with Grip of Steel locking device
