Corning Introduces High-Temperature/Harsh-Environment Specialty Fibers

Corning introduced a suite of Corning High-Temperature/Harsh-Environment Specialty Fibers, designed to exceed the requirements for high-temperature sensor applications, which include a high resistance to hydrogen permeation, excellent fiber fatigue performance and high usable strength. The new products include single-mode and multimode fibers with polyimide coatings in both hermetic and non-hermetic formats.

Corning said its polyimide-coated fiber has an engineered high-temperature polymer that exhibits thermal stability up to 300 degrees Celsius. The multimode fiber is useful for Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) applications and the single-mode fiber can be utilized for Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) point sensing, such as engine or pipeline monitoring.
