INTRODUCING: SKY APPROVED RG6 COAX WITH PERFECT GUARD™ CORROSION INHIBITOR.
Using the latest cable design technology from Belden, means no more messy gel inside the cable which has been replaced by a very special anti-corrosion coating within the foil shielding, braid and outer jacket.
Historically outside plant cables such as Belden SKY RG6 have been filled with water-blocking gel to protect the cables from water ingress to ensure a very long and reliable service life with particular emphasis in coastal and geothermal areas.
Over recent years there has been increasing demand for stricter building fire codes and environmental compliance for the minimisation of environmental and health risk impacts of VOC’s, Chlorine, EDC & VCM.
This new design increases the cable’s versatility for both outdoor and indoor applications while still maintaining complete protection from UV and moisture ingress backed by the Maser Lifetime Warranty.
PERFECT GUARD™ IS NON-DETECTABLE ON THE CABLE.
NO LONGER WILL THE INSTALLER EXPERIENCE THE STICKY, TACKY FEEL OF AERIAL FLOODING COMPOUNDS.
