August 3, 2004 Franklin, TN--AFL Telecommunications introduces FPF1 Fiber Preparation Fluid, a non-flammable, environmentally safe solvent engineered to clean fibers after stripping, before fusion splicing or field termination. Packaged in a rugged, spill proof dispenser, the FPF1 costs pennies per cleaning and has an unlimited shelf life.
FPF1 offers the following features:
• Double filtered to 0.2 microns for consistent cleaning performance,
• Dries without residue,
• Provides the same familiar "squeak" when fiber is clean,
• ESD safe; quickly reduces local static buildup.
The FPF1 is safe on metals, glass, cured epoxies, and plastics. This product, which is available now, is exclusively produced for AFL Telecommunications by Micro Care Corporation, a provider of cleaning solvents. U.S. and foreign patents are pending on the product.
