GYTC8A Outdoor Figure-8 Aerial Fiber Optic Cable With Aluminium Corrugated Tape

Short Description:

GYTC8A is a typical self supporting outdoor fiber optic cable with features of moisture resistance and crush resistance suitable for aerial application.The  stranded wires as the supporting part are completed with a polyethylene(PE) sheath to be figure 8 structure. Aluminum tape armored and PE outer sheath provide crush resistance and gun shot resistance features. The steel-wire as the central strength improves the tensile strength and it is surrounded by the loose tube and water blocking system. The impact structure ensures excellent mechanical and environmental performance.Both single mode type and multimode types are available. Various lengths and fiber number can be customized according to customers’ requirements.
