DRAKAELITE RADHARD FIBRES

Prysmian Group has developed a wide family of DrakaEliteTM specialty multimode and single-mode fibres optimized for use in irradiative environments, thanks to our proprietary PCVD glass deposition process, allowing phosphorous-free operation. This family of fibres can be split into two classes: RadHard fibres for high dose levels up to about 10kGy and Super RadHard fibres for extreme dose levels of some MGy.

Prysmian Group maintains a dedicated production line, optimized for these RadHard products. Guaranteeing sustainable performances over the lifetime, and traceability – a pre-requisite for both Nuclear Power Plant and Military Applications.

US Defense certified. In 1999, the Prysmian Group fibre production plant in Eindhoven was certified by the US DoDDefense Logistic Agency (DLA) – for the MIL-STD-790 product assurance program. In 2007 and 2012 this certification has been extended. This highly respected military quality certificate, obtained and extended after thorough on-site audits, underlines Prysmian Group high quality management.
