The FRP Rod strength member plays a vital role for the fiber cable reinforcement


The strength member for the fiber optical cables is generally divided into metallic and non-metallic FRP Rod strength member. The structural strength of the non-metallic FRP Rod strength member is one of the important indicators for the mechanical properties of fiber optic cables. As the fastening element of the fiber optic cables, the FRP Rod strength member plays a vital role in enhancing the tensile strength and compressive strength. 

Firstly, it is found that the proportion the FRP Rod strength member plays in the tensile strength of the non-metallic fiber optic cables is up to 82%. Secondly, the FRP Rod strength member plays about 80% role in the tensile strength for the layer stranded ADSS cables. Third, the proportion that the FRP Rod strength member plays reaches as high as 95% for the ordinary wire armored central tube fiber optic cables. Fourth, the FRP Rod strength member plays about 85% role in the total tensile strength for the common sheath fiber optic cables.

The FRP Rod strength member is located at the center of the fiber optic cables. With the loose tube and the tight buffered fiber wound around the rod, the FRP Rod strength member is combined with the high performance of the glass fiber and the unique resin formulation, resulting in a strong and economical strength member products.

The FRP Rod strength member of the fiber optic cables are specifically designed to the insulation applications, which require the extreme stability in the diameter. The FRP Rod strength member is free of joints in the longitude direction, which helps increase the production capacity of the fiber optic cables. Therefore, the FRP Rod strength member are widely used in the telecom industry.
