Types of Water Blocking Tape Used in Optical Cables
There are several types of water blocking tape used in optical cables, each with its own unique properties. Some types of tape are designed to absorb water, while others create a physical barrier that water cannot penetrate. Some tapes are made from materials that swell when they come into contact with water, which helps to seal off any gaps or holes in the cable. The type of tape used will depend on the specific requirements of the cable and the environment it will be used in.
