Fiber recoaters restore the primary coating to stripped optical fiber sections after splicing. Recoating is the process of restoring the primary coating to its original shape and strength, using a recoater. The stripped fiber section is recoated by filling a recoating resin which is then cured using UV light. Most recoaters also come with a proof-test mechanism to ensure the splice is strong enough to survive handling, packaging, and extended use.
