Ripcord

Ripcord

Ripcord is manufactured from first quality materials. Used mainly as rip & tear jacket purpose for optical and communication cables, they are very tough and have minimal shrinkage. We deliver the yarn wound under high pressure on cardboard tube, to allow the yarn to be used with high-speed servers. We can also deliver these products colored for identification purposes.  Ripcord is twisted and can accept 1-6 plys.
