Belden Filled Solid Apeth CableIntended for general use in buried distribution and exchange feeder plant.

· Solid insulated color coded conductors for easy identification and splicing
· Corrugated copolymer coated overlapped alum. shield provides electrical protection and resists corrosion
· Flexgel® filling compound for superior moisture protection
· Strong UV resistant polyethylene jacket

Solid annealed copper in 26, 24, 22 or 19 AWG.

Solid polyolefin color coded in accordance with telephone industry standards.

Twisted Pairs
Individual conductors twisted into pairs with varying twists to minimize crosstalk, and specified color combinations to provide pair identification. All pairs are guaranteed to meet electrical requirements for the nominal pair count.

Core Assembly
Cables having 25 pairs or fewer are assembled in a single group. Cables having more than 25 pairs are assembled in units, each individually identified by color coded unit binders.

Core Wrap
Non-hygroscopic dielectric tape applied longitudinally with an overlap.

Filling Compound
Flexgel® filling compound – 80° C Expanded Thermal Plastic Rubber. Compatible with most commercially available encapsulents – cleaning conductors not required.

Shielding System
Corrugated, copolymer coated, .008" thick aluminum tape applied longitudinally with overlapped edges and electrically continuous. A polyolefin based flooding compound is applied over the core wrap and over the aluminum tape.

Black, linear low density, high molecular weight polyethylene.

Identification and Length Marking
Manufacturer’s cable code, pair size, manufacturing plant location, month and year of manufacture and sequential length marking every two feet.
