WATFORD, England, June 27, 2006 -- FiberLogix, a manufacturer of specialty fibers, has announced the
latest offering in its range of optical fibers -- polyimide-coated
fiber for applications in the oil and gas, aerospace, sensors,
defense, medical and security industries.
The new fibers offer a wide operating temperature range, from -65 to 400 °C, with long-term operation at 360 °C
in harsh operating environments. Typically, the company said, the
polyimide-coated fibers available in the marketplace are manufactured
by a single polymer with many thin layers to form overall coating.
However, FiberLogix uses two proprietary polymers to form dual layers
on the fiberglass cladding. The inner soft material protects the fiber
from microbend forces and offers good adhesion to the glass cladding.
The thin outer layer is hard and provides abrasion resistance and
Due to its dual layer configuration and
proprietary polymers, the company said it is best suited for
applications where high strength and low bending loss is required, such
as strain, health and pressure monitoring in structural, geophysical
and medical sensing.
The polyimide coating makes the fiber
extremely robust and durable under harsh environments at elevated
temperatures. The product line consists of single mode compatible
to SMF 28, High NA; multimode, both 62.5/125 and 50/125; and 80 µm
fiber. The fiber offers tight and high performance optical and
mechanical specifications with tight dimension tolerances. It provides
high uniformity and lot-to-lot consistency.
The new fibers
join the company's other fiber products, like Peek-coated, high
temperature acrylate and high NA fibers. and are also available in
stainless steel tubes or with Peek buffer at very competitive prices,
