Polymer Optical Fiber Monofilament Capillary Tubing
Optical fiber are fibers with one or more claddings surrounding the core material. Monofilament or Mandrel are thin fibers without a cladding material

Capillary tubes are fibers with a hole down the center

Optical fiber can be made with outside diameters ranging from 25 - 1000+ microns. Monofilament can be made from a wide variety of materials and diameters. Diameters ranging from 25 - 1000+ microns.

Capillary tubing can be made from a
wide variety of materials, inside and outside diameters.

A wide variety of materials can be used, some popular combinations are below CUSTOM SIZES AND MATERIAL Custom Capillary Tubing
