No they are not.
Yes, these can be used under water. Most common applications like this are for sump pumps and pumps in small ponds in people’s yards.
This item is mainly used for securing wire bundles to a specific location. You could also use it to hang something depending on its weight compared to the type of cable tie and the cable ties weight limit.

I’ve always used a pair of side cutters or line-man’s snips. But we do have a tool specifically designed to cut cable ties. It’s our Economy Cable Tie Tensioning Tool (CTT-45). It tightens and cuts off the excess tie and works on all of our cable ties that are rated up to 75 lbs tensile strength.
These are made from 304 Stainless Steel and are designed for harsh, corrosive, and salt-water environments. You could use these for low voltage applications, but caution is recommended for high voltage applications.
The line-men for any telephone company may use these to hold cable to a service pole. There are a unlimited amount of applications for the longer cable ties.
We would recommend our Stainless Steel Ties.
GB Heavy-Duty DoubleLock ties carry the high tensile strength as will as the Heavy Duty Cable Ties carry a rating 120 to 175 lb of tension strength.
No. Only stainless steel ties should be used in this application. The fumes in the gas tank will breakdown the nylon in the ties.
Because cable ties are made of nylon, they will have a natural tendency to lose moisture over time as they are exposed to the air. Drier environments will speed up this process. To help extend the life of a bag of cable ties after they have been opened, add a drop or two of water to the bag, and then seal the top of the bag shut with tape. Make sure there are no other holes in the bag. If this is done each time a bag of cable ties is taken out and used, the shelf life of the ties will be greatly extended.
Standard shelf life on cable ties is 1 year from the date of production.
