Abstract
Concurrent with the development of optical fibers for telecommunication applications many different coating (buffer) systems have been utilized. Each system has sought to preserve the optical characteristics of the fiber as well as fiber strength. Composite UV-cured acrylate coatings were developed to meet these requirements. This paper reports the results of environmental testing. The benefits of acrylate coated fibers to both the cable manufacturer and end user are discussed including practical stripping techniques.
