Cable & Telecoms

It’s amazing how reliant we are on the cable and telecoms industry.

Electricity… communications… data transfer… could life go on without these things?

Given this, it’s vital that manufacturers and service providers have super materials that protect, preserve and maintain their industrial cables.

We’ve worked alongside cable manufacturers and telecoms people to create intelligent fabrics that deliver solutions in both electrical and networking cables.

It’s taken all of our insight into how technical nonwovens impact and improve integrity, protection and performance within cable construction.

Now, developing bespoke fabrics that are smarter and lighter with multi-functional grades may seem like a tall order. As is slitting these fabrics into specialist tapes and testing to validation protocol before tailoring them to your manufacturing process.

But, so long as we can switch the kettle on, it’s all in a day’s work for us.

  • What are technical fabrics
    used for in cable & telecoms?

    • We’ve worked on the design and development of technical fabrics used in cable construction to create specialist tapes that:
    • Protect and preserve core components
    • Safeguard against water ingress
    • Insulate against heat
    • Act as a binder during cable construction
    • Conduct electricity
    • Improve functionality and performance in industrial cables
  • What features of a technical fabric are important in this sector?

    • As cable manufacturers look to create smarter, more advanced materials for the protection and preservation of industrial cables we offer innovative fabrics that are:
    • Able to control absorbency
    • Conductive or semi-conductive
    • Heat-resistant
    • Lightweight and durable
    • Adaptable and multi-functional
    • Soft, stable and conformable
  • Why are nonwovens popular in cable & telecoms?

    • Our technical nonwoven fabrics allow greater control of adaptability and functionality when compared to alternative fabrics and deliver:
    • Multi-functional performance
    • Superior weight to strength ratio
    • Control of liquid uptake and retention
    • Softness, conformability and stability
    • Precise control of porosity
    • Safe thermal protection
  • What solutions can Nonwovenn offer in cable & telecoms?

    • With a knowledge and understanding of how technical fabrics impact and improve cable construction, we offer solutions that are:
    • Bespoke to the demands of each application
    • Smarter and lighter with advanced features
    • Conformant to a design or performance specification
    • Tested on safety, quality and performance
