L-5/Standard Loose Tube All Dielectric Cable

Optical fibers are protected in loose tubes filled with Thixotropic jelly. These loose tubes are stranded around a central strength member. The cable core is water proof with water blocking material, wrapped with peripheral reinforcement yarns (if necessary) and outer sheathed for mechanical protection. Suitable for lashed aerial and duct installation applications.
