Product Overview

FCST has been devoted to developing and producing the air blown fibre cable since 2003. So far, it has produced various air blown fibre cable types which are of good performance and compose a complete series of air blown products. ABF is the important part of the series, and it is the most popular product of the indoor optical fibre cables for generic cabling in EuropeJapan South Korea and so on.

The ABF is the product that with small diameter, lightweight, highly flexibility and proper stiffness, and it can be blown into the microduct of 5.0/3.5mm. The fibres are coated with a soft acrylate resin which provides excellent dimensional and thermal stability to cushion the fibres, in addition, the resin can be easily stripped in connecting the fibres. The outer sheath is a thermoplastic that is of low friction. The surface of the sheath is designed with special grooves, compared to the surface of the traditional optical fibre cable, it provides not only the high level of mechanical protection, but also the perfect blowing performance.

Note: It is recommended that the structure of 2 fibres unit consist of 2 filled fibres, for it is provedthat 2 fibres unit with 2 filled fibres is better than the one with zero or one filled fibre in the blowing performance and the fibre stripping-ability
