The GJL is a cable part used for integration into submarine cable products such as power cables. The extremely robust and hermetical sealing ensures best possible protection of the fibers downto 3000 m depth.
The cable part is based on a hermetically sealed stainless tube. Inside the tube the fibers are free to move in thixotropic water blocking compound. The steel tube is protected by a semicon-ductive polyethylene sheath. The fibers are easy to identify due to color and the colored yarns. The cable part is designed to be integrated in submarine electrical power cables.
