Absorbent Yarns & Fabrics for Cable Water Blocking
Using a SAF™ Spun Cable Yarn or low basis weight SAF™ Fabric can help protect power or telecommunication cables by rapidly absorbing any incoming water at the point of damage
Absorbent cable yarns: using a SAF™ Spun Yarn or low basis weight SAF™ Thermobond Fabric can help protect power or telecommunication cables by rapidly absorbing any incoming water at the point of damage. Upon contact with the water, the cable yarn or fabric will swell and form an impermeable barrier.
Highly absorbent, Cost-effective, Lightweight nonwovens
Our Thermobond Nonwovens are cost-effective, thinner materials that still provide high levels of absorbency. They are lightweight, discrete, conformable, and can be manufactured with a number of layers to enhance performance.
These Nonwoven webs can be bonded by hot air to create loftier fabrics with lower density and greater thickness, or can be passed through hot rollers or ovens to deliver a stronger, thinner structure. These fabrics range from 20-80gsm and are typically a blend of SAF™ and other fibres.
