Optical Grade Fiber Optics, developed and manufactured by Mitsubishi, are offered in two grades, both with superior optical properties for improved transmission. The core of both is made of acrylic polymer PMMA (polymethyl-methacrylate) and is sheathed with a particular thin layer of fluorine polymer which has a lower refractive index than the fiber core. Optical Grade Fiber Optics are designed to provide higher transmission in the visible region of the spectrum. They can be used for a wide range of applications, from general industrial light guides to short-distance data transmission. The fiber is tough and flexible but is not designed to bear loads.
Note: Price listed is per foot - minimum order is 10 feet per stock number. 3mm Fiber is lower grade Eska® fiber for commercial applications only.
