Use Chemtronics' QbE™ Dry Fiber Optic Wipes to clean fiber optic end faces. They're perfect for wet or dry connector cleaning and splice preparation. The heavy-duty lint-free material won't shred or tear. It's tough enough for buffer gel removal yet soft enough for end faces.
The fiber-safe foam platen on the side of the box provides the ideal cleaning surface. Dry clean first whenever possible. Avoid paper and cotton. If dry cleaning doesn't produce desired results, use a minimal amount of Electro-Wash® PX Fiber Optic Cleaner on a wipe. Avoid isopropanol when cleaning end faces.
Handy dispenser box contains a roll of 200 perforated wipes. Convenient 3" x 3" size fits easily in tool cases and on work benches.
