3M FC Hot Melt (MM) Connector

3M FC Hot Melt (MM) Connector

3M Hot Melt Connectors have a proven record of high performance and ease of use in local area networks around the world. These connectors are now qualified to TIA/EIA 568B standards for both indoor and outdoor use, including temperatures as high as 85°C (185°F). Drawing on 70 years of adhesive expertise and 40 years of experience in ceramic technology, 3M provides the most convenient, reliable and easy-to-install connectors on the market.

Preloaded adhesive means no syringe and no epoxy mixing is needed, saving installation time. The PC zirconia ceramic ferrule provides superior optical contact and durability. The ability to reheat and reposition fiber within the connector means virtually all connections are successful, saving time and money.
