High Performance in High Temperatures

CCG produces both blown fiber tubes and furcation tubes for a broad range of applications, ranging from housing for data-carrying fiber in office buildings to military uses where high performance is essential.

Blown Fiber Tubes

CCG extrudes single-layer and dual-layer tubes that are used in riser, plenum, military and other applications. The tubes are blown through the length of the fiber to serve as housing for data-carrying fiber optic components.

New tubing produced with high-temperature and engineering materials is used not only for optical fiber, but for wire & cable, industrial and fluid-handling applications.

Materials

  • Fluoropolymers (FEP, MFA, PFA, PVDF, ECTFE, ETFE) for plenum applications
  • FRPP and FRPE for riser applications
  • Non-halogen resins, ranging from LSOH to PEEK, for military applications
  • PP, PE, PVC
  • Co-extruded dual layers

Sizes and Other Options

  • Continuous or cut lengths
  • 900 microns to 1″
  • Printing available
  • Bundling and taping
  • Jacketed bundles

Furcation Tubes

CCG is experienced with various constructions, including:

Inner Tube/Outer Tube. Various sizes manufactured at low temperatures using polypropylene or polyolefin, or at high temperatures using fluoropolymers or other high-temperature engineered resins.

Buffer Yarn. Using materials ranging from traditional Kevlar® to CCG’s FluoroSpun® yarns.

Buffer/Loose Tube Extrusion. CCG also has the ability to extrude either buffer tubes or loose tubes over optical fiber to meet customer specifications and produce finished cable.
