Our optical fiber coatings are based on 40 years of research and development – and we remain the industry’s innovation leader. Our patented fiber coating systems deliver the highest levels of mechanical and environmental performance, but we’re not finished yet. Today, DSM is the only fiber coatings supplier in the world actively developing next-generation coating systems that meet the industry’s most pressing network performance needs.
Our DeSolite® optical fiber coatings boost fiber microbending performance at the fastest processing speeds - ensuring the best economy of high-speed production and superior fiber attenuation performance.
In addition to improved microbending performance, DeSolite® optical fiber coatings deliver high reliability in temperature extremes, as well as offering:
Reduced volatility ✓
Faster cure speed ✓
Advanced mechanical properties ✓
Our Bufferlite® products enable you to upjacket optical fiber to 500um and 900um via fast, one-step processing on a slightly modified UV coloring line. These materials offer you excellent strip performance allowing for reduced termination times.
Our Cablelite® inks and matrix are optimized for loose tube and ribbon designs. They are fast curing; display robust processing at various line speeds with consistent cure; and methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) resistance for all 12 colors.
You can use Cablelite® materials for various ribbon designs including subunit ribbon designs; they have very low water sensitivity - and excellent low temperature performance.
