Multi Loose Tube

Overview – Multi Loose Tube Metallic Armored Single PE Jacket

Multi Loose Tube Metallic Armored Single PE Jacket Outdoor Type Fiber Optic Cable structure is made of an assembly of colored tubes around a central strength element. Indoor Outdoor cables guarantees the protection of cable where the mechanical damage risk exists and also to guarantee stability towards environmental influences such as frost and humidity. The interstices between tubes and central strength member are wrapped with Water Swelling Tape to prevent water penetration. Swelling Glass yarns are helically applied over the tube to provide additional tensile strength. Corrugated steel tape armor provides additional mechanical (crush and rodent) protection with a high-strength ripcord under the armor for easy stripping. Polietilene UV (Ultra Violet) resistant sheath is resistant to stress cracking. Two layer of tube construction up to 192 Fiber is available. On request following options are available:

Other number of tubes Colour options for sheath, tube and fiber

Increased Tensile strength (Aramid or Glass Yarn)

L-M-HDPE or LSZH sheath.
