A major optical system manufacturer has stated that more than 30% of the optical boards returned from the field were found to only have contaminated optical ports. No other problem was found. Proper cleaning would have saved time and money.

What Happens If Fibre Optic Connectors Are Not Perfectly Clean?

Your choice is simple: you either can clean properly when you install the system, or you can go back (again and again) and troubleshoot the network until the problem is found and fixed.  This is particularly true for the new, high-speed fibre optic networks operating above 600mHz. The specific problems include:

The bottom line is this: Cleaning must be a priority for all personnel who come in contact with an optical network. If you don't clean properly, you're going to spend MORE money trouble-shooting the network and re-working the connectors.

Do it right the first time. Clean EVERY connector, every time you touch it.


Please note over the next months the cleaning products will be re-name branded to Sticklers.

• Troubleshooting. If a network is disrupted for testing or upgrades, and proper cleaning is not performed, then once again the signal will be degraded and problems will be encountered when the network is brought back on-line.

Product Information The MultiTask Surface Cleaner -  pre saturated wipes provide fast and safe cleaning in almost any production environment. Using a strong, shred-proof disposable wipe saturated with high purity alcohol and deionized water, it is well suited for cleaning medical devices, electronics and any surface-that requires hygienic grade cleaning. Versatile, it cleans most solder pastes and fluxes found in electronics production. It also cleans organic and ionic residues, light oils and other contaminants commonly found in the manufacture of medical devices. With excellent materials compatibility it is both safe and easy to use.

This product is great for cleaning off the gel from loose tube fibre cables and cleaning your hands before working with fibre.

We have also found it to work well when preparing fibre for Splicing. More cost effective than fibre cleaners.

Pre-saturated IPA Wipes are convenient and effective – each wipe contains an optimal amount of solvent for the cleaning task. Pre-saturated wipes replace dispensing bottles and glass containers, and minimise user exposure, improving health & safety. The wipes are 68gm2 hydroentangled cellulose/polyester with low particulate generation and extra absorbency. They resist tears, hold their strength even when wet, and are non-abrasive.

Isopropyl alcohol (IPA or isopropanol) is the solvent of choice for the final preparation, cleaning and degreasing of all substrates prior to adhesive bonding. It is useful for the cleaning up of many uncured adhesives, sealants and resins.

IPA wipes are used for cleaning in cleanrooms and other controlled environments because of their enhanced ability to clean a wide range of contamination from critical surfaces, and the isopropyl alcohol evaporates quickly. They remove dust, grease and fingerprints, and are particularly effective on stainless steel. Because they are safe on most plastics, our pre-saturated IPA wipes have found a huge variety of uses in general cleaning and degreasing.
