Abstract : High quality communication cables can be produced with semiconductive polyethylene coverings. These cables will have physical performance characteristics similar to those cables currently used, but offer the added benefit of an outer covering which will help maintain the shield at local ground potential and help dissipate voltage induced by lightning, thus reducing the possibility of damage.
