With advances in technology in modern-day Telecommunications, over a period of time, it became very important to upgrade the HDPE pipes to be used particularly for Telecom applications. The Optical fiber Cables used for Telecommunications being very delicate and sensitive, it became necessary to modify the HDPE Pipes to be used as conduits for optical fiber cables. This led to the development of Permanently Lubricated (PLB) HDPE Telecom Ducts.
Alex Pipes offers PLB Telecom ducts which have a layer of special compound on inner side for smooth conveying of optical fiber cables with extremely low friction. we use the special compound for the production of PLB Ducts, which generally maintains the coefficient of friction between the inside of the HDPE duct and the outside of the inserted communication cable as 0.06 max.
