Tetramer Wins DOD Contract to Develop Advanced UV Curable Materials

Tetramer Technologies has been awarded a DOD Phase I Contract (N68335-12-C-0052) to develop advanced UV curable index matching materials.  In this Phase I SBIR program, Tetramer will develop new, commercially attractive, UV curable refractive index matching materials which have a significant shelf life in the uncured state. The value proposition to the customer working with fiber optic cabling will be increased reliability in refractive index matching adhesives(IMA) for fiber optic coupling and increased performance through a decreased attenuation at a fiber splice. Currently, the long term stability of uncured IMA is unacceptable when the temperature and humidity are not controlled, which is the case in most field operations.
