Cross Contamination: Protect the Connector Pair
March 06, 2023

Are you tired of dealing with fiber optic network performance issues and costly maintenance? Don't underestimate the power of a pair of clean and contaminant-free end faces.  Before making any mated connection, ensure that BOTH fiber end faces are cleaned and inspected to avoid cross-contamination.

End face contamination can cause intermittent operation or even a complete signal loss in a best case scenario.  At worst it can permanently scratch and pit the delicate end faces beyond repair.  

Cleaning fiber end face pairs before mating is an easy and cost-effective solution for extending the lifespan of your fiber network. Don't wait until it's too late, start cleaning and protecting your network with Sticklers™ fiber optic cleaning tools and fluids today.


The Sticklers Pro360™  Touchless Cleaner creates a Coandă effect of atomized fluid and air to whisk contamination away from fiber optic end face pairs.  All with the touch of a button.
