In my business, I used Thomas & Betts cable ties in black and found
they would give good service for about 7 years after which they
Noted on a number of "clean up" jobs that the white/natural colored
cable ties disintigrated into salt-grain sized particles after about
4 years in the sun.
I found that if I gave the cable tie two wraps of black Scotch 33
they would last indefinitely.
My experience is that the cable tie provides a quick, mechanical support and
the black tape provides UV protection for the cable tie.
As for where to buy, I'd stick with reputable supply houses and avoid:
hamfests (unless the package says Thomas & Betts or Panduit)
Radio Schlock, Dollar Store, Harbor Freight (Arbor Fright for our VK
mates...HI!) or any other low rent outlet.
