PCS-100 Polyimide Coating Stripper

June 7, 1995
Polyimide coated optical fiber are now widely used in the oil and gas and medical industries. The polyimide coating has superior heat and chemical resistance to conventional UV curable coating material, but the coating requires additional care to remove. Dangerous chemical stripping using hot sulfuric acid or burning the coating off are common methods to strip the fiber due to the thin coating and strong coating adhesion to the fiber cladding. AFL’s PCS-100 Polyimide Fiber Coating Stripper is the first tool that uses a mechanical stripping method, providing a safe, consistent and quick stripping solution.
