Polishing Films

Krell offers a variety of polishing films and lapping films for optical connector and bare fiber processing. Diamond, silicon carbide, aluminum oxide and silicon dioxide abrasives and slurries are available in a variety of grit and particle sizes. Specialize flock films can be used for controlling fiber protrusions with multifiber MTP, MTX and MT-RJ connectors. Standard film diameters are 5”, 4”, and 2”. Special film orders can be accommodated.

Precision Rubber Pads, Glass Disks & Wear Liners

Rubber polishing pads and glass polishing discs are crucial for controlling connector endface geometries such as apex offset, radius of curvature, and fiber protrusion/undercut. Krell offers precision ground rubber pads necessary to achieve these Telcordia specification. Rubber pads are available in various durometers (hardness) and diameters. Glass disks are also available for processing flat surfaces that are required for bare fibers, SMA connectors, and MT style multifiber connectors.

Wear liners are used with all KrellTech polishers to ensure smooth and controlled polishing, eliminating the need for messy lubricants.  Liners are easily replaced on both the base polisher and platen contact surfaces.
