Mumbai, Dec 14 (ANI/Business Wire India): Fiberguide is now offering a full line of standard optical fibres with polyimide coating which are designed to providing optimal performance of fibre optics in extreme conditions.
Fiberguide's polyimide coating is ideal for oil and gas, aerospace, sensors, defence, medical and security applications requiring high temperature resistance. The coating withstands operating temperatures up to 400:C (300:C continuous), while conventional coatings such as acrylate, nylon and Tefzel(r) begin to deteriorate between 100:C and 250:C.
Additionally, Fiberguide's unique process of applying the coating results in a fibre of significantly reduced cross-sectional area. This low profile characteristic is optimal for use in bundles and supports spectral transmission from 160nm to 2500nm.
Polyimide coated fibre is available in step index, multimode fibres from 50um cores to 600um cores; 6.25um/125um and 50um//125um graded index; and 4.8um/125um and 9.2um/125um single ode fibres. The fibre offers high performance optical and mechanical specifications with tight dimension tolerances providing high uniformity and lot-to-lot consistency. (ANI)
