The internal tube is made from special material with good adhesion to many materials and low solubility in water. It changes its consistency to semi-liquid in growth temperatures. It enables to eliminate air bubbles through filling up the spaces between external tube, the pin and fiber optic cable. The Pin that stiffens the splice is made from steel with heat extensibility indicator identical to that of optic fiber. This prevents from longitudinal stresses on the splice during heating process. Longitudinal stresses of the splice influence on growth a insert loss and a reflection loss. In extreme cases these may cause breaking the connection, which makes it necessary to repeat the splice procedure. External tube material guarantees sustainability and resistance to stretching and puncture. It offers optimal air permeability, high gloss and smooth surface.
