Litetec have updated their website to include information on our range of metal coated fibres. These fibres use pure metals of copper, aluminium and gold to give higher temperature use, better hermeticity and higher strength than polymer fibres.
Our metal coated fibres can withstand temperatures up to 500oc for long periods of time or 700oc for shorter periods of time.
This fibre makes for a good comparison with gold coated fibres, but at a fraction of the cost.
This fibre can also be produced in much longer lengths (up to 1km) and come in a variety of fibre types including single mode, graded index and step index large core fibres in UV and IR grades of silica.
Further information on these types of metal coated fibre can be found here;
