Plastic Imaging Fibers

Kuraray Plastic Imaging Fibers can transfer images to other side.
Our Plastic Imaging Fibers are much more flexible and resistant to breakage than glass fibers.

6,000 0.5 PS PMMA 0.55 6.1
10,000 0.8 4.6


  • Medical endoscope, Industrial fiberscope



  • Young’s modulus is twentieth of glass fibers.
  • Easy to bend, strong to breakage.
    Wending a 0.5mmΦ 10,000 pixels Plastic Imaging Fiber onto a 13mmΦ stick, our Plastic Imaging Fiber has no breakage and the optical loss is very low.

Bending Loss

  • Very low bending loss.

High NA 0.55 (PS core and PMMA cladding)

  • High resolution is achieved by fine and high pixels.

Cross Talk

  • High picture resolution


  • Customize the outer diameter and pixel to fit your needs.
