- What are Kevlar scissors used for?
Kevlar scissors, also known as Kevlar cutting shears or Kevlar Shears, are designed for cutting Kevlar material and other tough fibres used in the construction of optical fibre cables. Kevlar is a strong, lightweight and heat-resistant material often used to provide strength and protection to the delicate optical fibres within a cable. These scissors are used to precisely trim or cut the Kevlar reinforcement without damaging the fragile optical fibres.
- What is the best scissors to cut Kevlar strength fibres?
The best scissors for cutting Kevlar strength fibres are those specifically designed for the task. These scissors typically have high carbon stainless steel blades that are heat-treated for durability, serrated edges for a secure grip on the fibres and ergonomic handles made of materials like nylon and Santoprene™ for comfort during extended use. The Jonard Tools JIC-186 Wire and Kevlar Cutting Shears, for example, are a popular choice among fibre optic professionals due to their quality and precision.
- What is the purpose of Kevlar in an optical fibre?
Kevlar serves a crucial role in optical fibre cables as a strength member. Its primary purpose is to provide tensile strength and support to the fragile optical fibres inside the cable. Optical fibres are delicate and can easily break if stretched or bent too much. Kevlar’s incredible strength and resistance to stretching help protect the optical fibres from damage during installation, handling and environmental stress.
- What type of scissors can be used to cut Kevlar found in fibre optic cable construction?
To cut Kevlar found in fibre optic cable construction effectively, it’s essential to use specialized Kevlar cutting shears or scissors designed for this specific purpose. These scissors are engineered to make clean and precise cuts through tough Kevlar fibres without fraying or damaging the optical fibres within the cable. They typically feature sharp serrated blades, ergonomic handles, and an adjustable joint screw for customized tension, making them the ideal choice for maintaining the integrity of fibre optic cables during installation and maintenance.
