Standard Published for Optical Fiber Coating Removal

Photonics Spectra
Feb 1997
A new standard published by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), titled "Measurements of Strip Force for Mechanically Removing Coatings from Optical Fibers," quantifies the force needed to remove coatings from fibers along the longitudinal axis. The standard is designed for standard glass core, glass clad optical fibers, as well as optical fibers having polymeric coatings with nominal outer diameters from 250 to 900 µm. Manufacturers can perform the standards on fibers during production or after environmental exposure. Copies of the standard (TIA/EIA-455-178A) are available for $131 by contacting Global Engineering Documents at (800) 854-7179.
