This Basalt combined FIMT is based on a new high-tech material, the mineral fibers of Basalt, an alkaline volcanic rock. The characteristic of this material gives the cable excellent elastically properties to bending, an ultra-high tensile strength and crush resistance as well as the advantage of a super lightweight design. A tiny plastic layer on top protects the stone yarns against mechanical abrasions to ensure a maximum lifetime for the application. Dimensionally changes can be optionally as well as the optical components are able to change upon customer requests. With all the features, this cable is great to use as a pushing element
or wherever the optical components need to be used many times.
