Abstract
Optical fibers may experience conditions which are potentially damaging to the protective coatings. They may be subjected to high temperature, high humidity environments, or come into contact with water, solvents, or various household chemicals. It is important that fiber properties such as strip force, coating adhesion, transmission properties, and fiber strength are maintained after exposure to such conditions. Aspects of coating design, and how these relate to fiber reliability, are discussed.
