The explosion of digital and electronic communications have made the world smaller and people more accessible around the world. In this hyper paced world, CREST ensures that you stay connected and up to date by providing communication at the speed of light.
Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of infrared light through an optical fiber. Optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals, Internet communication, and cable television signals. Fiber is preferred over electrical cabling when high bandwidth, long distance, or immunity to electromagnetic interference is required. This type of communication can transmit voice, video, and telemetry through local area networks or across long distances.
Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Rod is used as a strengthening member in optical fibre cables. The strengthening members give excellent tensile strength while retaining a high degree of stiffness, avoiding cable buckling over its entire life.
Crest specialises in manufacturing resins for jacketing, fiber coatings and for the tubes that carry the fiber strands within the cables.These are available as:
Thermal Curable C’POL Series
Crest offers modified acrylic resin, which can be cured thermally. The resin is designed to provide high line speed. FRP rods made by this resin provide excellent mechanical properties, good chemical resistance complemented by a superior surface finish.
UV Curable C’POL Series
Crest offers a variety of UV curable resin (ULTRA series) for the manufacturing of strengthening members used in optical fibres. It can be cured by UV light, allowing enhanced speeds. These resins offer optimum surface hardness coupled with water resistance.
