Perfect light transmission

Cutting-edge glass optical fibers such as the eco-friendly PURAVIS® family offer high light transmission and enable sustainable solutions. Due to a very low color shift, illuminated objects retain their natural color. In addition, thanks to an improved numerical aperture, the light guides capture more light from the very start.
