​Why Choose our Metal Detectable Cable Ties / Zip Ties?

​Why Choose our Metal Detectable Cable Ties / Zip Ties?

Glad you asked! The short answer is safety, quality and performance.


Designed for the food & beverage processing and pharmaceutical industries, our metal detectable cable ties/zip ties meet quality assurance and safety standards set by HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) guidelines. They are also manufactured in facilities certified to ISO/TS, IATF 16949, ISO 9001 and AS9100 standards. These ties are magnetic and x-ray detectible (detection level depending on specific application and equipment). Unique colors assist in visual detection and, coupled with the metal detectible qualities, these cable ties greatly reduce the risk of contamination and costly recalls.


When purchasing metal detectable cable ties, start by looking for the HellermannTyton brand. This brand is synonymous with quality and the only brand of metal detectable cable ties carried by Union Jack. Started in 1935, HellermannTyton is a global leader in cable management and protection products, identification systems and network connectivity solutions. The company’s product engineers and chemical scientists have developed the longest lasting products in the industry. HellermannTyton’s renowned fasteners, routing and protection products, data connectivity, identification solutions and tools demonstrate the ultimate in engineering expertise. Their focus is on developing quality products that are also easily implemented and used in facilities day to day.


Outstanding performance is made possible by a unique manufacturing process. These metal content ties are nylon based, with the metal content dispersed throughout the entire tie, including the head. The inclusion of a metallic pigment enables even small “cut-off” sections of the ties to be detected by standard metal detection and X-ray equipment. Tensile strengths of 30 lbs or 50 lbs (depending on length) make them ideally suited for the installation of cabling in areas adjacent to the manufacturing process. They also are commonly used for bag and sack tying.
