Plastic ties can heat up from wheel brakes and such or from engine.

You must use the big wide, + - a cm wide, ties if you go that way. Can`t comment on the smaller narrower ones. If using hose clamps you can fit in situ and tighten using a long screwdriver at will. There is sufficient clearance to adjust and clear hub.
Can also run a nylon stocking around boot fitted CV joint to hold together if it should crack or fail. Keeps dirt out but the grease leaking gives the failure away.
Never had problems with heat failure. Plenty of ventilation at speed. I would think that if your hub gets hot enough to cause failure check grease in CV joint. I have felt my front hubs after a run and they get warm but not hot. Maybe I don`t go fast enough.......

These look like little ones to me, certainly smaller than 1cm wide. two have been used. I'm going to insist on a metal one when it gets fixed.
