George Dallas has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 7212715
    Abstract: A cable element and a method of making the same, in which the cable element has a central strength member, a plurality of buffer tubes are disposed on the central strength member, each of the plurality of buffer tubes encloses at least one signal transmission element, and a layer of pressure sensitive adhesive is provided on the central strength member. The pressure sensitive adhesive is a repositionable adhesive and releasably couples the plurality of buffer tubes to the central strength member such that the plurality of buffer tubes can be coupled and uncoupled repeatedly from the central strength member.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 25, 2004
    Date of Patent: May 1, 2007
    Assignee: Draka Comteq B.V.
    Inventors: George Dallas, Benoit Rollet, Christophe Meisch, Serge Pouilly

  • Patent number: 6912347
    Abstract: A fiber optic cable with optical fibers stranded around a central strength member, and surrounded outer jacket made of a low coefficient of friction material and thinly constructed to show the profile of the stranded shape of the optical lines through the jacket, to thereby form a textured surface.

  • Publication number: 20040096166
    Abstract: A fiber optic cable utilizing fibers mixed within the jacket material. This design improves the properties of the jacket by decreasing the jacket's shrinkage after aging; decreasing the jacket's coefficient of thermal expansion; and increasing the jacket's surface roughness.

  • Patent number: 6597844
    Abstract: An optical fiber cable comprising a plurality of buffer tubes, binder wrapped around the buffer tubes, a ripcord disposed between the buffer tubes and the binder, and a protective outer jacket covering the buffer tubes. Upon application of a sufficient outwardly directed pulling force, the ripcord rips both the binder and the jacket thereby providing access the buffer tubes and optical fibers therein. The binder is formed of a material which melts or softens when the jacket is formed by an extrusion process so that the binder is thereby incorporated into the jacket. Alternatively, the binder is formed of a material which will adhere to the jacket when the jacket is formed by an extrusion process and is easily torn when the jacket is ripped by the ripcord.
