Light Rod Conduits/ Fiber Rods
Rigid fiber rods with excellent light transmission. Our tapered conduit type fiber rod distributes light at a wide angle.
SUMITA’s Light Rod Conduits are rigid fiber rods consist of core and cladding. Cores and claddings are fused together without adhesive. Light Rod Conduits have high transmittance in short distance, and are superior in heat resistance. Although this type of fiber rods is not flexible because of its large diameter, forming, such as bending of rods, changing optical path and cone shaping, is available upon request. SUMITA’s Light Rod Conduits are highly efficient light guides for dental curing devices, and are perfect light probes for cavity.
