Bulk Supply of PMMA Fibre on Reels

High Quality UK Manufactured PMMA Fibre Supplied in Bulk Quantities

UFO manufactures and supplies high quality multi-stranded sheathed Mitsubishi/Eska fibre on reels. These typically consist of 0.75mm polymer fibres in multiples to create a fibre of larger active diameter.

We can also supply reels of Mitsubishi/ESKA single strand fibre which we sheath in the same material.

Our PMMA fibre products are manufactured from Mitsubishi / ESKA raw fibre. We are an offically authorised supplier of Mitsubishi fibre products.

These can be used for many lighting applications and we supply many manufacturers of fibre optic lighting with standard and custom fibre configurations.

Pricing is dependant on shipping quantity - please contact us for details. Minimum order quantity for this product is one reel.

Fibre Specifications

Core material Polymethyl Methacrylate
Cladding material Fluorinated Polymer
Refractive index 1.49
Numerical aperture 0.5
Refractive index profile Step index
Operation temperature range -55°C to +70°C in low humidity; <60°C at 95% RH (attenuation change is within 10% after 1000 hours except for that due to absorbed water). Please note that fibre can become brittle at lower temperatures.
Sheathing specifications Megolon S540 is a thermoplastic, halogen free cable sheathing compound which exhibits an excellent level of fire retardancy. This product is specifically aimed at designs of cables requiring a good degree of flexibility and the ability to meet the more stringent fire test specifications.
S540 Toxicity Index (DEF STAN 02-713) 0.4
S540 Halogen Acid Gas Evolution (IEC 60754-1) Zero
S540 Flammability Temperature Index (ISO 4589-3) 330°C

Other Information

Stranded fibre cables using 1mm and 1.5mm fibre can be made to order as can mixed diameter bundles.

We can supply blank common ends and sized ferrules for installers to cut and fit the fibre on site.

Though making harnesses on site does not produce as good or even light output as properly factory terminated harnesses, sometimes it can be necessary to terminate the fibre on site and UFO can supply suitably experienced fitters with the raw materials to do this.

These fibres can also be stripped back at one end to make starry effects through ceilings.
