Tetramer has received NSF funding under a Phase II SBIR grant (IIP-1330948) to develop and commercialize high-temperature, highly processable optical fiber coatings. These polyimide coatings which will be sold under the name Tetrimide. Tetramer anticipates that the polymers developed in this project will have performance characteristics not currently available in fiber coatings and will enable operation at temperatures above 300 °C.
Tetrimide coatings have potential to impact a wide variety of markets. Down-hole fiber sensors with Tetrimide will proved improved temperature monitoring in ...Continue Reading →
