3M Lapping Film final polish products give you a new dimension of consistency and control for
polishing ceramic fiber optic connectors. These advanced polishing films are engineered to last
longer, for higher yields, less rework and lower costs per part.
3M lapping films deliver consistent results, reducing the need for costly rework. And they easily
produce optimal fiber height and outstanding visual quality, helping finished connectors meet
Telecordia standards.
These films contain proprietary high performance silica and resins coated on 3 mil films. 3M final
polish products are part of a complete lineup of lapping films designed for fiber optic connector
polishing. They provide precision alternatives to messy slurries that require time-intensive cleanup.
When used together as an integrated system, these matched 3M technologies can deliver even
greater process improvements, while helping to simplify sourcing and recordkeeping.
