Solar Ties can be used to secure one
or multiple PV cables throughout an
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
• 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.
