The 250μm optical fiber is sheathed in a loose tube made of high modulus material, and the loose tube is filled with a thixotropic waterproof compound. Two parallel FRPs are add to form a flat shape and then extrude into a flat polyethylene sheath. The optical fiber and cable is designed for a live expectancy for at least 30years without serious degradation of the performance or reliability when maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and when operated in the environmental condition.
Outdoor GYFXTBY Flat Cable Single Mode Fiber Optic Cable is Non-Armored Uni-Tube optical cable with fibers placed in loose buffer tube. The cable core is protected with jelly to prevent water intrusion and migration, and cover with a black polyethylene out jacket. Two embedded FRP or metallic wire provide desire tension. The cable consists of a central loose tube, filled with a synthetic oil based jelly, non-nutritive to fungus, electrically non-conductive, homogeneous and free from dirt and foreign matter, containing up to 12 optical fibres. Two Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) elements are longitudinally applied parallel with the tube, and an outer black PE sheath, UV resistant.
The Fiber Cores of Flat Fiber Cable is 2-24Cores
The PBT loose tube material has good hydrolysis resistance, and the tube is filled with special ointment to protect the optical fiber; The flat optical cable is all non-metallic structure, light in weight, easy to lay, and has better anti-electromagnetic and lightning protection effects; Drop cable has the advantages of corrosion resistance, UV protection and environmental protection; Precise control of the excess length of the fiber cable ensures that the optical cable has good tensile performance and temperature characteristics.
The flat fiber optic cable is end of the household access, the agricultural network lightning distribution area overhead, also can application indoor and outdoor wiring in open areas. Mainly used for building pipelines or overhead drop cables, and can also be used for access networks, outdoor to indoor drop cables.
The optical cable layout is generally led from the entrance hole in front of the office to the optical transceiver through the underground access room. Due to the complexity of routing, manual deployment should be adopted. When laying, there should be a special person at the upper and lower corridors and each corner to pull according to the unified command, keep the fiber drop in a slack state during the pulling, and flat optic cable is strictly forbidden to make small circles and dead bends.

This cable can work with single mode or multimode LC/SC fast connectors and also can be pre-terminated by LC/SC/ST/FC connectors.
Yes, the optical fiber usually is single mode (9/125) G657. It is also can be G652D. You can use cold splicing tool to add fast connectors LC/SC/ST/FC(UPC/APC) to it.
Yes, UnitekFiber can provide LC fast connectors to terminate FTTH drop cable.
The main application for FTTH drop cable is Fiber to The Home project.
Yes, it is suitable for outdoor application with 70meters pole span.
The strength member for FTTH drop cable can be FRP or steel wire.
FRP is a Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic material that has the strength of steel at the fraction of the weight, the FRP makes cable strong tension and anti-bend advantages.
Very good service and quality.
The fiber cable was very easy to pull both indoor & outdoor. It's not stiff, went thru conduits nicely.
