Full name example

Optical cable DPL-P-48Y (6x8) 2,7kN

The cable consists of a loose tube core with a central strength element made of a dielectric rod around which optical loose tubes with freely laid fibers are twisted. The free space is filled with a hydrophobic gel in the optical loose tubes and in the core. The core is covered with intermediate MDPE sheath. The intermediate MDPE sheath is covered with the corrugated steel tape armor. Water blocking threads are laid between the intermediate sheath and the armor. The armor is covered with MDPE sheath.
