QUESTION:

When stripping multi-layer cables for connectorization, does each layer need to be stripped individually? 

 

ANSWER:

It important to consider that when stripping multi-layer cables for connectorization, each layer must usually be stripped individually, as they all usually need to be stripped to different lengths.  That is, you cannot strip the above cable in one “go”, the layers must be stripped progressively.  

The Jacket must be stripped, then the Aramid Yarn, then the Buffers.  (there is a slight exception with the Buffers, noted in our blog article).   And thus, when stripping an outer layer, care must be taken to ensure that the layers underneath are not damaged.  

Regardless of the stripping tools you use, always be sure to properly maintain the, to keep cutting edges sharp.
