HTL manufactures its Optical Fiber Cable components mainly ARP, FRP and IGFR in its Hosur plant in Tamil Nadu. This makes HTL as one of the most cost effective optical fiber cable manufacturer. The components play a key role in providing tensile strength to the OFC and helps in protecting it during installation and also from buckling during its lifetime.
|Aramid Fiber Reinforced Plastic Rod (ARP)||The Aramid Fiber Reinforced Plastic Rod is particularly designed to meet the strength member requirement in most of FTTH drop cables, It provides tensile strength to the cable protecting it during installation and its rigidity prevents cable buckling during cable life.
|Strength Member - FRP Rod||Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) rods are used as strength Members in optical fiber cables. The FRP rod produced by pultrusion process. Fiber glass reinforcements are pultruded with unique resin formulations to produce a final thermoset FRP rod.
|Impregnated Glass Fiber Reinforcement (IGFR)||Glass yarns are manufactured using E-glass fiber with proprietary PU resin systems to produce an innovative, value added reinforcement solution with high degree of softness and strength. It has a special smooth, flexible coating which improves handling and eliminates dust and loose fiber generation during cable production even at very high speeds, leading to high productivity and ultimate cable strength. The soft fiber spread evenly on cable the core minimizes, thickness build-up.|
