Submarine tension wire

Bekaert offers customized tension wires for the production of submarine telecom cables. The bright, high carbon steel wires feature low elongation and excellent crush resistance, providing a strong shell that protects the optical fiber unit from the marine environment. The high flexibility of the wires makes them particularly suited for small diameter/bend radius applications.
