Cable Yarns

Cable Yarns

Complete assortment of yarns

HEC-Holland has a complete assortment on all kind of yarns used at the cable industry with various functions ranging from waterblocking, act as strength member, stripping element, binding of individual cables or segments, longitudinal waterblocking of conductor or cable construction but also used as cable filler or protecting/identifying element at subsea cables.

Our full assortment on technical PE technical-, PP armouring/filler- and Glassyarns are fulfilling our customer requirements within the specific cable design or cable standard. See our options and alternatives for:

PE Yarns

For our waterblocking yarns we have an economic version range and a more highly engineered product range – depending on the cable design, type of production process and/or cable standard. Within each product range we have a selection on mechanical and water absorption requirements.

Our PE based waterblocking yarns are being used for waterblocking stranded conductors and/or waterblocking a segment or full cable construction against water ingress. For Fiber Optic Cables we have also have various longitudinal waterblocking solutions either by blowing in into the tubes or laid crosslay over the cable construction. All our materials are designed to fit your production process and have fast and stable swelling properties and high tenancy.

HEC-Holland distributes the best quality produced by its reliable partnership with the producer having a long track-record in producing continuous the best and stable high and smooth quality and having a perfect fit product portfolio for the cable market requirements.

Our innovative solutions are meeting customers’ requirements which does not stop at the product but also its state-of-the-art packaging and labelling, not to mention our on-demand services.

It has a high tensile strength and good dimensional stability and other preferred characteristics used within the wire and cable industry where mechanical forces are key during installation operations.

Beyond the low weight versus the strength are our glass yarns also impervious against corrosion, thus guarantee a long service life, but also have heat resistance properties; so applicable to be used in harsh and challenging environments where only the best materials can do their job continuously guarantee a long life. And this all at a very economic and attractive pricing versus other alternative products within this service segment at wire and cable sector, thus cost competitive.

Glass fiber yarns types

Our glass fiber yarns are used for reinforcing the cables – HEC-Holland has a various types of glass yarns for each application depending on the needs from our customers. We have following versions to meet each individual cable requirements.

Our uncoated glass fiber yarns have following strong points:

  • No fiber dust during processing
  • Premium precision winding
  • Dielectric and fire-proof & rodent-proof

Our urethane coated glass fiber yarns have following strong points:

  • Smooth and Soft coating surface
  • No fiber dust during processing
  • Premium precision winding
  • All dielectric and fire-proof & rodent-proof

Our waterblocking urethane coated glass fiber yarns have following strong points:

  • Very quick and high-water absorption
  • Smooth and Soft coating surface
  • No fiber dust during processing
  • Premium precision winding
  • All dielectric and fire-proof & rodent-proof

Our SUPRA version is coated reinforced glass fiber yarn recognizable to its yellow color and following strong points:

  • Economic alternative towards aramid yarn at diverse cable constructions
  • Identical mechanical properties especially at tensile strength
  • Similar surface friction like aramid alternatives
  • Similar yellow color
  • Very quick and high-water absorption
  • Smooth and soft coated surface & no fiber fly
  • No fiber dust during processing
  • Premium precision winding
  • All dielectric and fire-proof & rodent-proof

PP Yarns

HEC-Holland has a broad experience within the field of polypropylene based cable filler and armouring yarns, either colored or white of color within the standard range of 1.5 up to 30.0 mm diameter, however other diameters are possible available upon request.

Our PP (polypropylene) filler and armouring yarns are being produced at the highest production and quality standards specified under ISO-9001; produced from 100% virgin PP material without recycle or CaCo3, white or colored. For armouring yarns we have diverse colors such as yellow, orange, white, green and red.

Our PP (polypropylene) filler and armouring yarns are meeting the highest standards as per our customer requirements, ands guarantee a long service life, and applicable to be used in harsh and challenging environments where only the best materials can do their job continuously guarantee a long life. And this all at a very economic and attractive pricing versus other alternative products within this service segment at wire and cable sector, thus cost competitive.

Furthermore, are our materials resistant against high processing temperatures when used for example in combination with bitumen; and are able to withstand the kinetic friction forces when the cable construction is being transported over roller banks/tracks, cranes or beams, or being coiled up in so-called cable pits or (un)loaded on drums or turntables.

We are delivering our material at high quality tubes, spools or drum delivering long lengths per unit in order to optimize the processing steps.

Our PP (polypropylene) filler and armouring yarns is being delivered in many cases as being part of overall cable projects, where it is key to deliver in-time and be flexible in the (part)delivery, for which our supply chain management department has already a long-lasting and proven track record to deal with, which is key in this cable segment.
