There’s More Inside Your Splice Closure than You Think

As fibre is being pushed deeper into the OSP network and technologies grow more sensitive to performance-eroding contamination, the variety of sealing technologies used to protect the fibres inside the closures have evolved.

Until very recently, there were three main types of seals: heat shrink, rubber seals (grommets) and thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) gel. Recently, the scientists developed a fourth technology—silicone gel—that adds critical capabilities and performance features unavailable with the previous three.

This White Paper gives you an overview of the sealing technologies now available to protect the network operators’ fibre investment.
