PMMA 28-Strand Fiber Optic Cable With Black Sheath

Multi-stranded fiber optic cable with a black sheath

Multiple strands of fiber in a black plastic coating which holds the bundle together and protects the fiber in arduous conditions. The fiber can be terminated with ferrules for use with end fittings. For starry effects the sheathing can be stripped back and the individual fibers fanned out to give small points of light.
