Some of the materials we have applied to our custom optical fiber products include:

  • Acrylate
  • High-Temperature Acrylate
  • Fluoroacrylate
  • Silicone
  • Silicone/Acrylate
  • Polyimide
  • Carbon
  • Fluoropolymers (PFA, FEP, ETFE, PVDF)
  • PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone)
  • PBT (Polybutylene terephthalate)
  • PP (Polypropylene)
  • PE (Polyethylene)
  • PA (Polyamide)
  • LSZH (Filled FR PE)
