Materials develop techonologyWith the development of Industy 4.0, automation is deeply applied in each industry. Materials used for electronic&semiconductor, are at the forefront of innnovation. Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials collaborate closely with customers to develop the innovative solutions for technology development.
Ferrules and sleeves are the key components of connectors, which ensure perfect alignment of the fiber after connection to prevent signal loss. Saint-Gobain ZirPro provides yttria-stabilized zirconia powders which are the industry reference in the manufacturing of ferrules and sleeves for optical fiber connectors.
CY3Z-M zirconium dioxide powders are especially well suited for the injection molding process of ferrules whereas CY3Z-P grade (3 mol% yttria-stabilized zirconia) has been specifically developed for the manufacturing of sleeves using ZirPro’s latest technology improvements.
