Fiber optic coatings from DSM

Optical fiber coatings are one of the critical components of high-speed fiber networks. There would be no high-speed Internet today without high-performance coating systems from DSM.

In the fast-paced world of optical fiber and cable manufacturing, DSM has been a trusted leader for more than four decades. We were there at the inception of the industry, designing the very first UV-curable fiber coatings that would make mass fiber production possible, and we’ve been there ever since - working with leading fiber and cable manufacturers to bring the latest material advancements to the world’s telecommunications market.

Today DeSolite® Supercoatings is the industry leading coating solution for fiber protection worldwide. Around the globe, DSM is protecting network investments for the future. DSM’s newest DeSolite® Supercoating delivers heightened speed and efficiency to the wet-on-wet process.
