Fiber Optic Polishing/Lapping Film and Consumables

Accu-Glass Products, Inc. recommends using at minimum, a four-step polishing process.  Quickly remove excess epoxy from the tip of the connector using 5µm or larger polishing/lapping film.  Proceed with the polishing/lapping process with 3µm film until all of the epoxies are removed from the connector tip.  Proceed to the 1µm film and polish to the desired finish.  A 0.3µm lapping film is available for situations that require an extra-fine polish.

High-temperature UHV Compatible Epoxy is supplied in single, two-part, 4-gram packs eliminating the need for measuring and cup mixing.  Ideally suited for UHV environments to 1x10-10 Torr and an operating temperature of 250°C and up to 400°C for brief periods.

Fiber optic consumables are available below to help make the polishing/lapping process and cleanup quick and easy.
