SYFLAT, di-electric rod is designed to provide high degree of flexibility
in one axis, with reduced thickness and with excellent tensile strength & modulus
performance without adding bulk. It is typically used as peripheral reinforcement in fiber
optic cables for Armouring purpose when dielectric, anti-rodent, shot proof armouring are
required. It is typically embedded in the jacket or stranded over cable core and the cable
manufactured with it would be lower in diameter, lighter in weight and thus has a low
total cable cost. Thanks to the shape flat strength members give the opportunity to have a
better flexibility and better surface coverage of the Fibre Optic Tubes applying a limited
number of ends.
SYFLAT is manufactured using E-glass fiber with proprietary resin system. It is available
in tuff coated surface, which allows easy handling. Tuff coating provides very smooth
surface. It is currently available in 1 mm x 2mm and 1x 3mm dimensions, however, any other
dimensions can easily be supplied on request.
