Categories: ,




Description

The fusion spliced region of the fibre is bare glass and thus needs to be protected. Various systems designs are used to carry this out.

The thermo shrinking type of splice protection sleeves consists of three parts, the outer heat shrinkable tubing, the inner hot melt adhesive tubing and the strength member.

The inner hot melt adhesive melts and adheres to the fibre and the outer tubing shrinks to completely encapsulate it.

The strength member gives mechanical strength to the sleeve preventing bending and allowing the splice protection sleeves to be arranged in splicing trays conveniently.
