Cable management solutions for high temperature applications –
We replace metal with heat resistant plastic components
Our tailor-made plastic components for high temperature applications – developed for your individual needs.
High temperature is a key issue from the automotive industry to aerospace, rail, ship building and chemical industry, engineers face challenges posed by high temperature scenarios time and again. We develop customised products such as heat resistant cable ties made of plastics, high temperature insulation products or heat resistant sleeving to meet your individual demands. We replace metal with plastics such as PA46, PEEK and E/TFE (Tefzel®) – even in applications involving a high operating temperature – without compromising on quality and performance.
Our customers profit from many advantages offered by heat resistant plastics, such as
- Chemical resistance
- Reduced weight
- More flexibility
- Processing ease.
HellermannTyton's core competence includes development and manufacture of plastic injection moulded parts, both in the single as well as in the more-component technology. Our long-standing expertise in the production of high-quality plastic components for cable management solutions is bundled in our Technology Centre.

Following we would like to focus on HellermannTyton’s expertise in injection-moulded cable management solutions made from high-performance, high-end thermoplastic such as PEEK, PA46 and E/TFE – products designed to withstand high or fluctuating temperature conditions.
Cable management products made of PEEK for high temperature applications up to +240 °C
The heat resistant material PEEK is considered to be one of the highest-performing thermoplastics on the market.
HellermannTyton`s products manufactured from PEEK have been designed for use in hazardous environments and are suitable for applications where temperatures can reach +240 °C (continuous operating temperature).
As well as having excellent radiation resistance properties, PEEK is highly resistant to chemicals. PEEK products are suitable for the use in various applications and industrial sectors.
We replace metal components with solutions made of plastic. Due to its combined properties, PEEK can be used instead of metal components to offer unique weight advantages in your applications.
Advantages of the heat resistant material PEEK:
- For high temperature applications from -55 °C to +240 °C
- Weight advantages compared to metal
- Excellent radiation and chemical resistance
- Outstanding wear resistance over wide ranges of pressure, velocity, temperature and counter facial roughness
Have a look at our PEEK product selection, such as
- PEEK Ties, inside and outside serrated
- 1 and 2-piece fixing ties with arrowhead, with disc
- Screw fixing mounts
- Identification plates for marking cable bundles
More variants and dimensions are available on request. Please contact us for more information.
Cable management products made of Polyamide 4.6 for high temperature applications up to +150 °C
The heat resistant material Polyamide 4.6 is suitable for temperature applications up to +150° C. Besides its resistance to high temperatures, PA46 is also highly rigid. PA46 products also offer good fire safety properties at high temperatures and excellent resistance to chemicals.
Advantages of the heat resistant material PA46:
• For temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +150 °C
• High-quality plastic that can be recycled easily
• High rigidity, even at high temperatures
• High operating temperature range up to +150 °C (5,000 hours)
• High dimensional stability, even under the effect of heat
• Very good fire safety properties
• Excellent resistance to chemicals

Cable management products made of Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (E/TFE) for higher chemical resistance and for temperatures up to +170 °C
E/TFE products are ideal for use in aggressive chemical environments at temperatures up to +170 °C. This highly resistant thermoplastic meets UL94-VO fire protection requirements and generates very little smoke density.
Advantages of the heat resistant material E/TFE:
• For temperatures ranging from -80 °C to +170 °C
• Continuous use at +170 °C
• Very good resistance to acids, bases and oxidizing agents
• Not hygroscopic, i. e. no water absorption
• Very good resistance to chemicals
• Very good resistance to weathering
• Good resistance to radiation
• Good impact strength
Cable management system solutions for high temperature plastics from one source. The ideal components for your application requirements.
In addition to the products made of PEEK, PA 46 and E/TFE we offer system solutions made of various materials, which are also suitable for high temperature applications. We have compiled the most suitable products from the range:
