2.5mm Economical Foam Swab
The 2.5mm Fiber Optic Foam Swab is an excellent choice for FTTH, CO, or Data Com applications. While some foam can generate particles, this swab is manufactured with a tough, medical-grade urethane foam that provides excellent particle entrapment, and has resulted in millions of successful cleaning operations.
Flexible swab head conforms to connector face
Open-cell structure gives the best solvent holding capacity, enables less solvent to do more work
2.5mm Precision Fiber Optic Swabs
Engineered to quickly and easily clean all 2.5 mm connector end-faces and alignment sleeves, this swab is made from proprietary microporous foam that immediately absorbs oil and solvents from fiber surfaces.
Head conforms to a connector face
Wrapped foam swabs provide outstanding particle entrapment; captures contaminants from alignment sleeves and keeps them from being transferred to the back plane end face
