Water resistant cable construction design

Our water-swellable yarns help prevent longitudinal water penetration in cable construction design. We impregned super absorbent powder on the polyester yarn to ensure an even distribution of the water-swellable effect and dust-free applications. The result is a water-swellable yarn that offers unique swelling properties of up to 45 times its own weight.


Roblon Water-Swellable (WS) Yarn offers swelling properties of minimum 45 times its own weight.
