Furcation Tube is used to build up bare optical fibers to protect them and to allow them to be terminated with connectors. Furcation is available in all 12 industry standard colors as well as a variety of sizes. The TLC 2mm, 3mm, 3.8mm, and 4.8mm furcation tubing consists of an inner tube surrounded by aramid yarn and an overall PVC jacket. Inner tubes are available in specific sizes to accept either bare or buffered fibers. TLC’s 900 micron furcation tubing is a single tube designed specifically for the protection and termination of 250μm bare fiber. This tubing accepts either bare or tight buffer and provides durable protection when breaking out cables. A newly engineered inner tube protects against crushing or kinking. It is designed for all connector types and is available with pull string for 2 and 3 mm furcation tubing.
