What does UV-resistant mean?
UV-resistant plastics and materials can be exposed to sunlight and other UV sources without any problems. The material retains its functionality without discolouring or becoming brittle. In order to achieve UV resistance, carbon black is added to the plastic. Please see our resistance table for more information on the chemical resistance of different cable tie materials.
