Anti-Termite Additives in Sheathing and Jacketing Compounds

Though there are different solutions to achieve termite resistant, use of Bifenthrin as an active ingredient in the additive is common due to safety factors. Bifenthrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are manmade versions of pyrethrins, which come from chrysanthemum flowers. Bifenthrin is used on various agricultural crops and in homes. Bifenthrin was first registered for use by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).

Sheave Testing Set-up for Fiber Optic Cables 73

Sheave Testing Set-up for Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber optic cables manufactured in a production unit need to undergo several mechanical tests to ensure their suitability to use in outdoor environment. While some tests are intended to assure the capability to use in outdoor environment, there are some tests that assure their suitability with the installation machines used for deployment. Sheave test is one of such tests. Sheave test is a kind of mechanical test which tests the strength of cable and its sheath to withstand the repeated movements through the sheaves.

Tensile Strength Test of Welded Steel Tape 75

Tensile Strength Test of Welded Steel Tape

Steel tapes are used for corrugation of fiber optic cables to provide extra mechanical strength to the fiber optic cables that is required for some installation conditions. ECCS tape or Electrolytically Chrome Coated Steel tape or Stainless Steel tapes comes in rolls of 1 or 2 kilometers in length. But fiber optic cable lengths during production are usually in lengths of 2, 4 or 6 kilometers.
