Plastic products have been used for many years to secure reinforcment from displacement. There are plastic "donuts" that help provide required clearances for vertical reinforcement from column or wall formwork. There are also plastic chairs available for slab reinforcement. As far as strength goes plastic ties in general are alot stronger then you would think - probably as strong as a tie wire. (Plastic ties are used by some Police Officers in lieu of handcuffs) It seems using the plastic ties for tieing rebar would be appropriate but CRSI should be the best source to answer this. PS Is this the Gray Hodge who used to work at Walter P Moore in Houston? W.
