Description

Fiber fusion splice sleeves are designed to prevent stress and protect the fibers in field and factory fusion splices. These FFSS have a transparent plastic tube and stainless steel bar for the single fiber protector and a ceramic bar for the ribbon fiber pro- tector. The fiber fusion splice sleeves are made ethylene (EVA) with heat-activated memory which allows them to shrink under heat. Sleeves shrink tightly to the fiber to exclude air and hold the bar firmly, preventing abrasion of the glass fibers. FFSS are available in four different sizes: Single fiber protection: 40 mm length, 60 mm length
