Glass Fiber Optic Cables

Our Glass Fiber Optic Cables contain multiple strands of very thin glass fiber that are bundled together in a flexible sheath. They are typically more durable than plastic fibers and are able to withstand higher temperatures. Most cables are available with a choice of PVC or flexible stainless steel sheathing.
