NTT Advanced Technology’s ADS series of final polishing films are ideal for the final polish of optical connector end faces. These films polish the end face of an optical connector without scratches or residues. Also, there is no adhesion of polishing film binder or silica grains.
ADS-NEXT polishing films feature stable polishing force while maintaining final finish performance and achieving an extended life-span. This series of final polishing films attains a high-performance polish with distilled water. Another feature of the ADS-NEXT series is a sharp improvement in the indentation problems that occur especially in 1.25 mm diameter ferrules from repeated use polishing. Even after many usages, ADS-NEXT can still protect against sudden occurrences of fiber indentation.
ADS-MPO series is a new generation of polishing films that has been improved for MPO connector end faces to realize a finishing quality equivalent to that of single fiber polish, leaving no scratches or dirt while at the same time their stable polishing power ensures long life. These films can polish to a convex shape to eliminate dips in the core (Coredip value of “0”) which particularly affects the optical characteristics (IL/RL) of multi mode fiber. APS-MPO final polishing films also realize low return loss, comparable to single connectors, by suppressing subsurface damaged layer to a minimum. With a base thickness of 75 µm, they are available in disc and sheet types.
