I need to irradiate these cable ties for sterilization. How will this affect the cable tie performance?

Great question! Of all the fluoropolymers available PVDF performs the best in conditions of ionizing radiation and typically shows an increase in tensile strength and toughness without sacrificing elongation. Kynar® PVDF is frequently used to protect the interior surfaces of gloveboxes. These isolated enclosures are used by the US Government for the handling and processing of fissile materials. Some of this work also involves aggressive mineral acids. Many of these containment environments are more than 30 years old and continue to be used every day without incident. This amazing service life is a great endorsement of Kynar® PVDF. Strong-Ty™ Kynar® cable ties are going to perform just fine after sterilization.
