Impact on cable ties market of rules & regulations on single-use plastic

Since the global population is dealing with plastic waste issues, government and regulatory bodies across various geographies have collectively restricted the use of single-use plastic across the globe. This initiative is highly effective in European countries due to the strong presence of regulatory bodies. This is a collective global safety measure undertaken to deal against increasing plastic waste that ends up landing in the ocean every year. Polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamide (nylon), and polypropylene are some of the major plastic types that are deposited in the ocean as plastic waste every year. Apart from regulating ban, the government along with regulatory authorities are coming up with environmental awareness programs to reduce single-use plastic and to increase awareness for bio-based plastics and chemicals. Cable ties made of nylon are single-use products in most cases.

Further, the new amendment to tackle the issue of plastic fastenings and fixings was brought into force from 1st January 2015. Under BS 7671 of the Electrical Regulations, new requirements trace the requirement for cabling to be backed by fire-resistant fastenings and fixings that are not exposed to premature collapse in extreme heat. This means that non-metallic cable ties, plastic cable clips, and plastic trunking to support wiring systems are unlikely to comply with the new rules.

Earlier there had been no precise policies on what products should be utilized in locations where certain risks of fire exist. Nonetheless, after 2005, it was recognized that standard cable ties and fixings utilized by installers were not enough to offer security and safety. Wiring systems should always be supported in the event of a fire and structural performance should not be influenced by raised temperature. The recent requirements made by the amendment of BS 7671 would be unlikely to be met by the sole usage of non-metallic cable ties, plastic cables clips, and plastic trunking to support wiring systems and hence, stainless steel products are crucial in installations. Stainless steel products are excellent for applications, which need high reliability, strength, as well as fire resistance. Although seen by numerous installers as a more expensive option, therefore the usage of non-metallic & plastic fixings and stainless steel cable ties delivers critical support and reassurance.

Hence, regulation on single-use plastic products is likely to challenge the adoption of nylon cable ties across the globe. However, stainless steel cable ties, which are capable of resisting temperatures of around 500°C, comply with the new rules and remarkably lower the risk of loose wiring and melting trunking and are expected to gain popularity in coming years.
