In its simplest form, optical fibre is a means of conveying information from one point to another in the form of light. The composition of optical fibre cables (glass fibre core and an outer protective sheath, which may include parts made of high-tenacity polyester, aramid and other high-performance fibres) maintains constant performance regardless of distances and external influences. Moreover, the cables are extremely flexible, allowing the internal material to bend easily without breaking or being damaged. As a result, optical fibre cables have, over time, replaced heavier and lower-performance copper wire cables, and now enable the whole world to connect up at very high transmission speeds. However, transmission must also be protected, and it is precisely in ensuring greater protection and the longevity of optical fibre cables that Eurotexfilati is committed to supplying some of their component parts, such as strength members, ripcords and binder yarns.
In its products Eurotexfilati use high performance fibers such as nylon 6 or 66 high tenacity, polyester high tenacity, polypropylene high tenacity, aramid and others.
