PCL Cable Ties

low temperature super-biodegradable polycaprolactone

Biodegradable Cable Tie Product Range

A uniquely redesigned cable tie that works with polycaprolactone, one of the most biodegradable plastics currently available. PCL is an expensive material, but known to be readily consumed by microbes that are present in the ambient environment. It has been shown to degrade in both fresh-water and marine environments, and is widely regarded as one of the most useful biodegradable plastics.


Compared to the more common poly lactic acid (PLA), PCL is able to quickly degrade at cooler temperatures. These biodegradable cable ties therefore do not require hot composting, and in favourable conditions, they have been shown to start degrading within a few months in damp soil.


We can currently supply two sizes of biodegradable PCL cable tie. These are made in the UK using a premium medium molecular weight material manufactured by Ingevity.


Important Note: polycaprolactone is low melting point polymer and must be stored and used at temperatures under 40C
