    Pretty sure most zipties are Nylon.

    Great video, but please please PLEASE don't use just any soldering pencil for this, unless that's ALL you use it for!!

    Seriously, great spontaneous engineering! Excellent reinforcement of the broken parts.

    Zip ties are made from lots of different materials. It is very difficult to know for sure what you have.

    If the flame is yellow with blue edges, there is a good chance it's ABS.

    with so many things made with plastic anymore, this is a valuable piece of information. Now I wish I had back some of the things I've thrown away so I could fix them!
