ColorLock and new-generation ColorLock-XS, uses a Draka-patented technology to color the fibers during the manufacturing process. This means that the standard identification colors are directly integrated inside the fiber coating. The advantage is that colors appear brighter, they are always consistent and they are guaranteed not to wear or fade, which means they will maintain clarity and vibrancy for as long as the fiber lasts.
ColorLock-XS takes these benefits to a new level with:
â€¢ A significantly enhanced micro-bending performance
â€¢ Significantly improved strip-ability, non-aged and aged
â€¢ Improved resistance to delamination;
â€¢ Resistance to aging in water, moist air, gel at high temperatures
â€¢ Visibly punchier, more vibrant colors: bright colors that are visible on dark and light background and under poor lighting condition
ColorLock-XS brings new benefits to every aspect of the value chain, which is a significant contribution to minimizing total cost of ownership. Speedier and easier installation, lesser re-work, lesser maintenance and high durability ; all of these lower operational costs for network operators.
