Fiberguide’s Plastic Clad Silica Fibres Offer Excellent UV and Infrared Transmission
Low and Standard OH Fibres Feature Plastic Cladding to Prevent Fibre Breakage

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, April 28, 2010 — (Business Wire India) — For medical, scientific and military applications, Fiberguide Industries offers a full line of low and standard hydroxyl concentration (OH) plastic coated silica fibres. The AnhydroguideT and SuperguideT are low cost optical fibres that provide superior UV and infrared transmissions.

Fiberguide’s Anhydroguide fibre is constructed of a pure fused silica core, made by reacting silicon tetrachloride with oxygen using a plasma arc. This ensures a low residual OH for excellent infrared transmission. Superguide’s silica core is constructed in the same manner, only with an oxy-hydrogen flame instead of a plasma arc, which maximizes the fibre’s UV transmission properties.

Both fibres feature plastic cladding to protect the fibre during buffer stripping and prevent breakage, while increasing fibre strength and reducing static fatigue in humid environments. Fibres offer exceptional transmission in tight bends, with a high core-to-clad ratio and numerical aperture of 0.37. All materials used in construction are certified by NAMSA to USP Class VI for non-toxicity and biocompatibility.
