Jan 2012
Nextrom of Vantaa, Finland, recently combined its OFC 20 draw process technology with DSM Functional Materials’ DeSolite supercoatings. The result was process speeds of 2500 m/min – 50 percent faster than that of average production in the industry, the company said. Nextrom supplies optical preform, fiber and fiber optic cable manufacturing solutions, while DSM Functional Materials of Elgin, Ill., specializes in optical fiber coatings. The tests, conducted at Nextrom’s facility, demonstrated excellent cure levels; draw, fiber and microbending performance; dynamic fatigue; and strip force, the company said.
