Fiber Optic Swabs

Foam fiber optic swabs are ideal for removing transmission disrupting contaminants in bulkhead connectors. The head conforms to the various connector shapes, cleaning the conductor bulkhead corners inside the bulkhead pocket. Foam fiber optic swabs are an economic choice over wrapped swabs. Tips are heat bonded, so no contaminating glues have been used.

FAQ's

Do you have swabs for cleaning tight areas?

While cotton bud swabs (aka Q-tips) are commonly used for electronics cleaning, they can be blunt instruments for dense PCB designs. Techspray offers a pointed cotton swab (part #2313-30PK), a pointed foam swab (2309-1000) and small rounded foam swab (2311-1000) for cleaning tight areas.

Are Q-tips / cotton bud swabs good for cleaning electronics?

Yes, cotton swabs are a common choice for electronics cleaning, cotton tends to lead behind threads and particulates. Open cell polyurethane foam swabs are a common, very clean replacement for cotton.

What type of swab should I use with harsh solvents?

Just about any swab is compatible with isopropyl alcohol (IPA), but harsh solvents like acetone or toluene can cause foam swabs to swell and even break-down. For harsh solvents, cotton swabs are the best choice.
