Water-Free Alcohol Fiber Optic Connector Cleaner

Type FO Fiber Optic Cleaner is great for cleaning glass fiber end faces for better light transmission performance. Type FO removes dust, oil, and other contaminants, and leaves no residue. The anhydrous alcohol in Type FO is water-free. Avoidance of water is important in fiber optic cleaning.

Product/Package Notes:

The durable, non-linting Type FO wipe is a convenient field package. Compared to others, its larger size (40 sq in/260 cm2) allows longer working times while still limiting vapor exposure and spill potential for the worker. Also available in a variety of bulk packages. HydraSol® Cable Gel Remover and SqueekyKleen Cable Cleaner are more appropriate products to remove the cable filling gels and greases.

  • Excellent Solvency: Removes oil, dust, and other contaminants.
  • 99.8% Anhydrous Isopropyl: Water-free for fiber optic cleaning.
  • Large Cleaning Wipe: Longer working times and more cleaning per wipe.
  • No Residue: No interference with light transmission.
  • Fast Evaporating: Minimal delay before continuing with job.
  • Non-Abrasive: Will not scratch fiber end face.
  • Convenient Packages: Quantities suitable for large or small jobs.

Specifications and Applications:

High Performance: Excellent cleaning effectiveness on dry/ionic soil (dust, salt), wet/non-ionic soil (oil, buffer gel), or a combination soil.
