Corrugated Steel Tape Armoring Process for Loose Tube Cables

In most of the cases where extra mechanical strength is required, a corrugated steel tape armoring can solve the purpose. Corrugated steel tape armor protects the inside fibers from the possible attacks by rodents and termites.

Development of Optical Fibers, Cables and Optical Systems

Optical communication technology launched in the late 1970s has never stopped due to lack of development. Optical transmission technologies have been evolving consistently beginning from…

Tape Armoring of Fiber Optic Cables

Tape armoring is provided to ensure extra mechanical protection to the fiber optic cables. There are several types of tape materials that can be used for armor. Also, these tapes can be processed and applied in a variety of ways. We will see here a summary of tape armoring options, before that, let us see why tape armoring is preferable for some environments.

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).
