Ripcords for Fiber Optic Cable


Fiber-Line™ Ripcords

Strong and Durable

Engineered fiber ripcords are designed to rip through the thickest, toughest jacketing materials, even in below freezing temperatures. Fiber-Line ripcords are customized to meet specific application requirements with various fibers and coatings. Ripcords are available in flat, twisted or corded form that are precision-wound for solid package integrity and minimal ballooning to yield the greatest length per package.

Fiber-Line ripcords are supplied on a variety of cardboard tubes to meet your equipment needs. Contact us with tube dimensions and color, embossing or slitting requirements. Plastic or metal reels are also available.
