Data Sheet

Conductors: Solid annealed copper in 19, 22 and 24 AWG.

Insulation: Conductors are insulated with solid polyolefin, color coded in accordance with industry standards.

Twisted Pairs: Individual conductors are twisted into pairs with varying lay lengths to minimize crosstalk and specific color combinations to provide pair identification.

Core Assembly: Cables of 25 pairs or less are assembled into a cylindrical core. Cables larger than 25 pairs are assembled into units, which are then used to assemble the core. Units are individually identifiable by color-coded unit binders.

Filling Compound: The core assembly is filled with an 80° C ETPR or PIB base jelly compound, completely filling the interstices between the pairs and under the core wrap.

CORE WRAP: A non-hygroscopic, dielectric tape is applied over the core assembly to provide protection for the core.

SHIELDING: The dual shielding system consists of two metal tapes.

Inner: A corrugated, copolymer coated, 8-mil aluminum tape is applied directly over the core wrap. The aluminum tape does not butt or overlap at any point along the length of the cable.

Outer: A corrugated, copolymer coated, 6-mil steel tape is applied directly over the aluminum and overlaps. The shield interfaces are flooded with an adhesive compound to provide a moisture barrier and inhibit corrosion.

Jacket: A black, linear low-density polyethylene jacket is applied overall. The jacket provides a tough protective covering designed to withstand exposure to direct sunlight, atmospheric temperature changes, and stresses expected in standard installations.

Jacket Markings: Information, such as manufacturer’s identification, pair count, AWG, product identification and a telephone handset is printed at 2 ft. intervals on the cable jacket. Sequential footage markings are printed at alternate 2 ft. intervals.

Optional Designs: AsFOUR®-F is available with an internal screen for use with T-Carrier systems. AsFOUR®-F+M is also available with mechanical protection.


4SProducts ASFOUR®-f cables are designed for use in a duct or direct burial applications where protection from moisture is required. ASFOUR®-f cables may be used aerially but must be attached to a support strand (messenger). ASFOUR®-f cables are recommended for use in high-risk areas where additional mechanical or rodent protection is required.
