Author Affiliations +
Abstract
Three commercially available telecommunications fibers were aged under zero mechanical stress in 85 degree(s)C and 30 degree(s)C water and in two hot, humid environments, 85 degree(s)C at 85% r.h. and 85 degree(s)C at 60% r.h. The strength of the fiber, as well as the stability of its protective polymeric coating, have been monitored periodically for aging times of up to 1 year in these environments. The fiber strength and coating integrity must be maintained in order for fibers to be handled safely during routine termination procedures in the outside plant.
