This product is used in the telecommunications industry to bundle cables together. It is a waxed cord impregnated with a mildew resistant chemical meeting specific specifications (MILspec, AT&T, Lucent, etc.) which takes the place of plastic tie wraps. When plastic tie wraps are used, the user tends to over tighten and destroy the fragile and critical twisting of the internal cables. This twine is installed with sewing and lacing needles. The product is ordered in sizes from 4 to 12, with 12 being most common. Due to the time consuming process that lacing requires, many people are also using Velcro Laces which are tie-wraps made from Velcro strips.
