FLEXLINE® is a non-metallic, E-glass composite designed primarily for use as a peripheral strength element in fiber optic cables. This flexible, flat GRP is produced with E-glass fibers and a proprietary resin to meet a wide variety of cabling applications. Used as a stand-alone strength element, or in combination with LIGHTLINE® or ARAGLASS™, FLEXLINE® limits strain on the optical fibers, making it an effective alternative to loose aramid yarns. FLEXLINE® has a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) similar to optical fibers, thereby limiting strain during temperature-induced expansion and contraction.
