A new waterproof optical fiber cable is proposed which used absorbent polymer yarn instead of the conventional jelly-compound as a filling material. This yarn limits the length of water penetration into cable less than 10 cm that is short enough to guarantee long-term reliability. And it is found that the cable has superior characteristics for dynamic bend-tension test.
