Abstract:

Corrosion data on the performance of bare and plastic coated metals intended for use as cable shields in direct burial telephone cable is presented. The metals were placed in buried cable specimens which had their outer jackets damaged to simulate actual usage in the field. These cable specimens were then exposed for one year in six different underground environments which are representative of practically all soils within the United States.
