? Solar Ties can be used to secure one or multiple PV cables throughout an installation. Stainless Steel Solar Ties provide maximum tensile strength while also being the most resistant to temperature, humidity, corrosion and chemicals. HellermannTyton offers a wide selection of high quality Solar Ties manufactured in materials suited for solar applications. Solar Ties are offered in a variety of environmentally matched materials based on your region and climate conditions. Some things to consider when choosing a Solar Tie: • Substrate material • Humidity level • Temperature • Exposure to salt spray Water Content in Polyamide (PA6.6, PA11, PA12) Polyamide is a hygroscopic material, which means that it absorbs and releases water. The mechanical properties of polyamide are significantly affected by its water content – especially flexibility and minimum tensile strength. Polyamide is most stable at optimum atmospheric conditions of 73° F (23° C) and 50% relative humidity. Under these conditions, the degree of water saturation of PA6.6 is around 2.5%. For PA11 and PA12, the water saturation rate under these conditions is 1.0% and 0.7%, respectively. Did you know? Solar Ties 12 800.537.1512
