The company’s technology produces a water swellable binder with higher yield, and this means lower cost per kilometer of cable produced. It also produces a package that offers: • Excellent integrity and balance. • Run at 5000 rpm without vibration. • More meters per package, this means longer runs without a break and a more efficient stranding process overall.
