UNILITE is a water-blocking, semi-dry texture compound designed for filling optical fiber buffer loose tubes.Unilite
Applications include telephone, category and other copper data cable and fiber optic cable constructions. 
UNILITE is produced by UNIGEL® in Hickory, N.C. and is compatible with most polymers, steel tapes, and FRP's. 
  • very soft, non-sticky hydrophobic compound 
  • density from 0.38 to 0.45
  • flexible to -50°C (specialty formulations are available to remain flexible down to -60°C)
  • non-draining at 80°C and thixotropic for controlled filling at ambient temperature. 
  • exhibits excellent insulation and electrical properties
  • low permittivity, low hydrogen generation, and zero oil separation  
  • provides excellent resistance to oxidation for long-term stability
UNILITE is considered by some to be a cleaner, more cost effective filling option compared to other gels. To fill the same volume as a conventional gel requires approximately 47% less UNILITE by weight.
