Cable ties and fasteners

Global leader in the cable tie market

Vydyne impact-modified grades are ideal candidates for use in high-performance, long-lasting heavy-machinery and renewable-energy applications. With superior strength and heat properties, our Vydyne grades provide dependable performance in critical applications.

The Vydyne difference

Cable ties used in extreme conditions such as heavy machinery or outdoor exposure in tough environments require products than stand up to their environments. The Ascend cable tie team works to ensure flawless performance of this critical fastening device.
