Keeping the Telecom Industry Connected
Telecom (Fiber Optic) cables are designed for many applications. The water-blocking solution exists in both a filled and/or flooded design. Regardless of the design, a gel-filled or gel-flooded cable has proven to be the best solution for blocking water.
The gel provides both a “floating” protection for the fiber and a “no water migration” water blockage solution as opposed to other solutions such as those found in dry designs.
Types of products include flame retardant, high-temperature, hydrogen scavenging, and corrosion protection.
Product applications include loose tube, ribbon cable, submarine, downhole and more.
