Fiber-optic Cable

Fiber-optic Cable

Optical fiber is used to transmit data at high speeds in landline, long distance, computer networks and the Internet. Fiber-optic cables are made of thin strands of silica (glass) as the core and a very thin polymer layer of PVC. This polymer layer is placed on a large number of thin glass fibers as insulation and protection.

Flexibility, tensile strength and brightness are the main features of PVC fiber optic cable insulations.
