Elgin IL , US, 06 Oct 2015 16:00 CEST

Royal DSM, the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, announces the introduction of High Efficiency DeSolite® Coatings for optical fiber at the International Wire and Coating Symposium (IWCS). This new coating system in the DeSolite portfolio provides enhanced processing robustness with excellent on-fiber performance and durability.

High Efficiency DeSolite Coatings were designed to enhance fiber processing capabilities by providing low volatility for large preform draws  and are capable of running at fast line speeds for both wet-on-dry and wet-on-wet processing. Fibers produced with this system display high performance with excellent tensile strength and support field robustness under severe environmental conditions including exposure to different types of cabling gel, heat and low temperatures.

“We are very excited about this latest addition to our DeSolite coating product offerings,” says Pratik Shah, Global Technical Marketing Manager for Fiber Optic Materials at DSM. “We are committed to working with our customers to bring new products to the optical fiber market that enhance production and deliver the performance needed for today and future demands.”
