Abstract

A simple analysis of the fluid dynamics of the optical fiber coating process is used to predict the resulting coating thickness as a function of draw velocity, coating cup pressure, and resin viscosity for a cylindrical coating die. The effects of surface tension forces and viscous heating are assessed. The analysis is compared to experimental data and found to give good predictions.
