Metal cable ties are used for a wide range of purposes. Their main function is for identification. Unlike plastic zip ties or nylon cable ties, these self-locking metal zip ties allow for important information to be attached and displayed all while boasting a higher level of tensile strength.
The locking mechanism in our cable ties is best suited for basic holding needs. The tag loops through itself, and folds over creating a hold. This is releasable if necessary, although the metal will be warped into that position.
For example, if you have a maze of pipes, being able to quickly and easily identify each one is a major time saver. In addition, they improve safety by clearly identifying hazards and preventing errors. Metal cable ties are also non-flammable as opposed to certain nylon zip ties.
Another example would be using these fasteners to manage the bundling of wiring and label it properly.

The two main processes used for custom cable ties are stamping and embossing.
Stamped cable ties feature indented characters, while embossing creates raised characters. Both processes are corrosion-resistant and provide excellent legibility.
- And more
One of the best features of stamping tags is their level of durability. The information is pressed into the metal material itself. Since there is no ink or paint, there’s nothing to be scratched off or fade.
Stamped or embossed characters hold up in all weathering conditions and are UV resistant. They are rated for 20+ years outdoors. This includes surviving in rough work environments. Stainless steel metal ties are used in every location imaginable across the United States and overseas: construction sites, manufacturing plants, oil refineries, shipyards, and more.
In addition, using durable materials such as 304 stainless steel or aluminum adds to the overall level of durability. Stainless steel cable ties are perfect for outdoor applications.
