Matching Gel and Oils Contamination about Fiber Optic Connectors



Another potential problem comes with matching gel and oils. While these often work well on first insertion, they are great dirt magnets. Damage is often caused as the oil or gel grabs and holds grit that is then ground into the fiber endface.


Also, some early gels were designed for the FC, non-contacting connectors, using small glass spheres. When used in contacting connectors, these glass balls can scratch and pit the fiber.

Index matching oils is also discouraged. It runs and migrates into unwanted areas, attracting and holding dust. If an index matching gel or oil must be used, apply it to a freshly cleaned connector, make the measurement, and immediately clean the gel or oil off.


Never use a gel for long-term connections and never use it to improve a damaged connector. The gel can mask the damaged end and continued use of a damaged fiber can transfer damage to another connector.
