Isopropyl Alcohol, 28oz Bottle
28oz Bottle Isopropyl Alcohol
The 28oz Bottle Isopropyl Alcohol is used to clean fiber optic equipment before use. It is important that the fiber be as clean as possible before inserted into a connector in order to maximize the signal strength.
We recommend that you also purchase 4.5" x 8.5" Kimwipes™ in order to properly clean your fiber and reduce the amount of contaminate the fiber may contain after stripping the jacket and buffer.
Fiber Optic Cleaning
Improper cleaning is the top cause for network failures. The tolerance to dirt or contamination on the ends of the ferrules of a connector is near zero. Network operators claim that 15-50% of all network problems can be traced to dirty connectors causing connection problems.
Mitigate the risk of fiber optic contamination with fiber optic cleaners, fiber cleaning pens, and cleaning wipes. These handy fiber cleaners can remove contaminants like: dust, dirt, oils, film residue, and solvent coating.
Airborne dirt particles are about the size of the core of SM fiber and are usually silica based - they may scratch PC connectors if not removed! Patch panels have mating adapters that can become contaminated if left open to the air or scrape off foreign particles under repeated usage. We recommend you always keep dust caps on connectors, bulkhead splices, patch panels or anything else that is going to have a connection made with it.
