Next Generation Optical Fiber Coatings with Both Improved Tear Strength and Superior Microbending Resistance, While Maintaining Robust Draw Processing Capability

Speaker Bio: Dr. Xiaosong Wu, Senior Scientist II, Fiber Optical Materials, Covestro

Abstract: Next generation optical fiber primary coatings have been developed to have greatly improved tear strength to maintain mechanical property integrity, while giving rise to superior microbending resistance. Such coating system is also fit-for-use for modern fiber draw processes, including super fast draw speed, optimized Helium consumption rate, as well as UVLED curing.
