Sticklers set to unveil 'breakthrough' fiber cleaning tool

Aug. 22, 2022
Sticklers will unveil a significant new product at several upcoming fiber industry trade shows. The company contends the new tool is a breakthrough in fiber-optic end face cleaning.

After extensive research and development, Sticklers announced that it will unveil a new fiber-optic cleaning tool at three major fiber industry events this fall, including ECOC 2022 in Switzerland, the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in the United States and Data Centre World in Singapore.

Brand new to the market, the company contends the new tool is a breakthrough in fiber-optic end face cleaning.

"Unlike anything else in the industry, it perfectly cleans oil and dust across the full end face to the ferrule edge," states a company press release. "[The tool] will change the way fiber technicians work and significantly improve their fiber cleaning effectiveness and performance."

“We’ve kept this new cleaning tool a tightly-held secret until the big release at the industry shows,” adds Rick Hoffman, commercial sales manager for Sticklers. “Sticklers has a long history developing products in response to our customers’ evolving cleaning challenges and this new, ground-breaking product is no different. The largest trade shows in the industry are the perfect platform to give a sneak peek at the prototype, before we go into full-scale launch.”

In addition to the new cleaning tool, at the upcoming events Sticklers will also be highlighting the other products from its fiber-optic cleaning products portfolio, including the company's FTTH and FTTA fiber cleaning kits. The kits contain all the tools and fluids needed for fiber connector cleaning in one convenient package including:

  • Sticklers Fiber Optic Splice & Connector Cleaner Fluid
  • Sticklers Clean Wipes
  • The Sticklers CleanStixx fiber-optic cleaning sticks

“Each kit includes the Sticklers fiber cleaning fluids and tools required to produce pristine clean ferrule end faces with zero defects. As everything is close at hand, cleaning can be completed in just seconds,” notes Liam Taylor, Sticklers European business manager.

The global Sticklers team will be on hand to present all products, current and new, at ECOC in Basel, Switzerland on September 19-22, at the STCE Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia on September 20-22, and at Data Centre World in Singapore on October 12-13, 2022.
