Description
1m x 1.5mm End Glow Polymer Fibre Optic Light Tubing.

This unsheathed optical fibre cable is a flexible, transparent fibre made of high quality extruded glass or plastic, and comes in various diameters. It can function as a light tube to transmit light between the two ends of the fibre. It is very easy to use, simply shine light in at one end and it comes out of the other.

Fibre optic cable is ideal for illuminating and producing a wide range of lighting effects in small models. It can quickly and easily be used for spectacular effects lighting, car headlights, building lighting, nooks and crannies.

The material is a type of plastic so it can be cut easily with a sharp knife.

One bulb or led can be used as a light source for many optical fibres. White and coloured LEDs make an ideal light source.

The size of 1.5mm diameter is also a good choice for model railways layouts.

The fibre is very flexible and will bend to around 50mm radius and possibly even tighter curves than that, although if bent too tight it will become permanently bent.
Tips
To get the best light output make sure that the ends of the fibre are cut cleanly and square.

To get points of light along the length of the fibre, simply nick it with a file, the deeper the cut, the more light will come out. Care should be taken as this will weaken the fibre.

LEDs make ideal light sources. A piece of heat shrink sleeve is ideal to hold the fibre in place at the end of the LED - although you can get away with nothing more sophisticated than a piece of sticky tape.
