4-144 Cores, Non Metallic Armoured Rodent Resistant Cable,HDPE Sheath


  • Central strength member (CSM): glass fibre reinforced plastic material (FRP) with plastic coating when needed.
  • Tube: thermoplastic material, containing up to 12 optical fibres and filled with a suitable water tightness compound.
  • Stranding: The required numbers of elements (tubes or fillers) are SZ stranded around the central strength member.
  • Longitudinal Water Tightness: WB jelly and water blocking yarn (partial jelly filled).
  • Peripheral reinforcement: glass yarns.
  • PE Outer Sheath: HDPE with rodent repellent additive.
