FRP Rods are manufactured by using high performance E-glass fibre with tight loss on ignition, minimised fuzz and fast impregnation reinforced with unique formulation of modified resin and high heat resistant . It is also available with various coatings such as EAA, Polypropylene and HDPE, which allows easy handling and better gripping to Optical Fibre Cables.
FRP Rod is one of the strongest and most durable material for optical fibre cable. FRP is also known as "composite material," which is a combination of resin, reinforcements, additives and surface veil. It is highly cost effective solution as a strength member
