Abstract : Thermoplastic rubbers based on styrene block copolymers have been modified with selected oils, waxes, and other additives to obtain various compounds for wire and cable applications. Included in these developments are a low modulus coating for optical fibers, a filling compound for optical cable, a flame retardant filling compound for service wire and a sealing compound for connectors. The design considerations and properties of these compositions are described. (Author)
