Abstract : The manufacturing process of a non metallic cylindrical grooved (or slotted core) cable is described. The results obtained show that the behavior of the cable is basically the same as one using metallic strength member with an even better temperature stability. Testing methods used for the cables are presented particularly concerning temperature stability and elongation tests. The results on cable production are given, showing the high quality level of this new cable. (Author)
