UV-LED cure: leading the way in fiber optic coatings

In the past 20 years, the global fiber optic cable market has grown by an average of 13% every year. So how do manufacturers around the world continue to deliver higher-performance end products based on more efficient manufacturing practices? One answer is UV-LED cure – a coating technology that helps minimize fiber optic cable environmental impacts by replacing the conventional, energy-hungry curing systems used for fiber optic cable coatings. 

Striving for a carbon-free future

If we replaced all the traditional microwave UV lamps in the world with UV LED lamps, it would cut carbon emissions by more than 35%.

An industry Leader in UV LED cure

Our UV LED cure coating technology enables you to reduce the energy consumption of the coating manufacturing process by up to 80% compared to conventional microwave lens heat production systems. In fact, DSM’s LED-enabled fiber optic coatings reduce the carbon footprint of manufacturers and help create better workplace environments – with less noise and heat.

  • Saving energy

    UV LED lamps have the potential to decrease energy consumption considerably compared to traditional microwave curing lamps. 

  • Saving money

    They can reduce the production cost of optical fiber thanks to their long life, low noise, and easy maintenance. 

  • Saving the environment

    UV LED further benefit the environment because they don’t contain mercury (and thus don’t generate ozone).
