Tubes with additional protection layers manufactured by NBG are designed for applications, where the initial tube needs significantly more protection against mechanical influences, while the inner tube protects the integrated optical fibers against hydrogen and
other environmental influences in order to provide maximum optical lifetime for their application. All fiber in metal tube products (FIMT) offered by NBG are produced according highest quality standards in the industry. With a wide variation range for fiber in metal tube products combined with the highest manufacturing accuracy, our products exceeding the needs and offers great performance in the field.
