RS PRO PA66MP Blue Metal Detectable Cable Tie

Introducing the range of RS PRO metal detectable cable ties. These cable ties have a unique blue colour that meets industry regulations so that it is easily identifiable to reduce contamination in production environments. In addition to this, the cable tie offers total diffusion of metal powder particles to ensure that every single part of the cable tie is detectable, even if it has been trimmed to size. The RS PRO metal detectable cable tie is ideal for use when installing cabling in factories, industrial and manufacturing plants, where there is a high risk of contamination.

Features and Benefits:

• The RS PRO cable ties come in an industry-standard blue colour for easy visual identification
• The metal powder particles offer full magnetic and x-ray detection, even if parts have been trimmed to fit
• These cable ties have been designed to reduce the risk of contamination within the manufacturing and processing industries
• They offer an easy to use, self-locking mechanism for quick installation and fastening, even by hand
• Excellent chemical resistance for food and pharmaceutical processing equipment manufacturing applications
• Made from high-quality PA66MP (Nylon 66) that offers high strength and wear resistance, even at high and low temperature extremes
• Supplied in a pack of 100 and available in a wide range of sizes


Metal detectable cable ties are an essential piece of equipment for cable management within the manufacturing and processing industries, especially when it comes to food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Cable ties like this are often used for cabling applications in and around the manufacturing plants and need to be easily detectable to ensure that they can be identified in case they contaminate a production batch. Within the food production industry, the HACCP (Hazardous Analysis of Critical Control Points) is a pro-active control system to ensure the reduction and avoidance of contamination leading to loss and liability. A metal detectable cable tie is generally used as part of this strict system as they are generally used within close proximity of the manufacturing process. These types of cable ties are generally designed to have an easily identifiable colour and be picked up on an x-ray or with a metal detector at any stage in the process, including the finished products in various industries like:
• Food manufacture
• Pharmaceutical
• Chemical processing

Are these cable ties re-usable?

No, these cable ties are one use only, so it is important to ensure regular checks are undertaken to ensure they have not perished over time, especially when they are being used in environments with exposure to rapid and extreme temperature changes or chemicals. When they need to be replaced, the secure self-locking mechanism allows for quick and easy installation, even when being installed by hand.
