The company is showcasing a new resin which can be tailored to specific wavelengths and offer attenuation control, extreme high heat resistance, and dimensional stability for accurate fiber alignment. This new solution is intended to reduce connector costs by up to 20%, accelerate fiber installation, and provide long service life.
Through the use of proprietary technology, SABIC Innovative Plastics can tailor its new resins to transmit light over the specific wavelength required by customers or industry standards. The product exhibits dimensional stability that helps to ensure that fibers remain aligned within the connector, thus avoiding the need for maintenance or replacement.
Ultem resin’s high flow properties enable connectors to be injection molded with high throughput. Because one-piece designs require no additional assembly, system costs can be reduced. A simpler connector streamlines installation and avoids multiple points of failure that characterize traditional four- or five-piece designs. Connectors molded from Ultem resin can be used with either glass or plastic fiber.
