Filling Compound for Optical Fiber Loose Tube
XF-400 filling compound for optical fiber loose tube is specifically designed for optical fiber loose tube at high line speeds. Its best working temperature is room temperature, with the temperature rises, its viscosity will gradually decrease.
XF-400 filling compound for optical fiber loose tube is silica free, soft, non-sticky hydrophobic compound. It can remain soft at -50℃,and doesn’t drip at 80℃. It is thixotropic,suitable for cold filling. It can inhibit the growth of mold, very low hydrogen evolution, zero oil separation , with excellent oxidation resistance and long-term stability .

Optical telecommunication companies have considerable financial reports. Fiber optic cable industry demand is still strong
Recently,Changfei,FiberhomeCommunications,HengtongOptoelectronics, Zhongtian Technology, and Tongding Interconnect China's five largest fiber optic cable companies all announced their 2017 financial statements.
Changfei’s revenue in 2017 hit a record high, achieving an operating income of 10.066 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 27.8%; a gross profit of 2.789 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 65.8%; a net profit of 1.235 billion yuan, year-on-year Increased 78.0%. In 2017, FiberHome achieved an operating income exceeding 21.056 billion yuan, an increase of 21.28% year-on-year; and a net profit attributable to the shareholders of the listed company of 825 million yuan, an increase of 8.49% year-on-year; the company's total assets reached 291.25 Billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 19.75%. Hengtong Optoelectronics achieved operating revenue of RMB25.950 billion in 2017, an increase of 34.4% year-on-year; net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies was RMB2.19 billion, an increase of 60.2% from the same period last year. Zhongtian Technology achieved operating revenue of 27.101 billion yuan in 2017, an increase of 28.39% year-on-year; net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies was 1.788 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 12.61%. Tongding Connect's total revenue in 2017 reached 4.232 billion yuan, an increase of 2.14% year-on-year, and net profit of 595 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 10.4%.
As always, the optical fiber and cable industry is thriving. Their revenue was mainly benefited from the continued development of the 4G network infrastructure by the three state-owned telecom operators, and the Chinese government’s continued implementation of national strategies such as “Broadband China” and “Internet+”, especially for the demand for optical fiber and fiber optic cables. To promote the role and bring additional motivation. In addition, major countries and telecom operators in the world have issued 5G construction and commercial plans, and 5G technology standards have gradually been introduced. 2018,5G will move from the laboratory to the actual deployment, and it is expected that commercialization will be realized in the next two to three years. The investment in global communications infrastructure construction will remain high, and the demand for fiber optic cable will continue to be strong. China, as one of the countries with the most discourse power for the construction of 5G networks, will surely bring a new wave of growth to the growth of optical fiber and cable.
In addition, due to certain reasons, before 2015, China Mobile did not basically carry out FTTH construction. The previous optical fiber was mainly used to build China Telecom and China Unicom's backbone network, metropolitan area network, access network (including FTTH and radio access network), and China Mobile's backbone network, metropolitan area network, and radio access network. Nowadays, the construction of China Mobile's FTTH and FTTx has entered a large number of construction periods, and the original network resources need to be upgraded and upgraded (including 4G patch panels), and the demand for optical fibers is very strong. China Telecom continues to improve the FTTH coverage network resource expansion and upgrade (including 4G short-cut boards); China Unicom's main demand is the expansion of original network resources (including 4G short-circuit boards).
In 2017, under the guidance of the party's Nineteenth Congress, the information and communications industry reshaped its position and pattern in the “fast-upgrade, big-connection, and pan-intelligence” industry development new navigation channel. The report of the Nineteenth Congress put forward the idea of building an innovation-oriented country. Cyber-powerful countries, digital China, and smart society are incumbent on the historical responsibility of the information and communications industry. The state has deeply promoted the deep integration of the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, and the real economy, cultivated new growth points, and formed new kinetic energy. It also provided a rare strategic opportunity for the information and communication industry. These policies can not be separated from the construction of fiber optic cable network.
In addition, since 2003, the Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China has initiated eight anti-dumping cases on optical fiber and optical fiber preforms, which has also brought great benefits to China's optical fiber cable market.
