Clauss No-Nik Buffer Stripper
An inexpensive hand-held tool used for removing the primary and secondary buffer coatings from optical fibers. These tools are made with cutting apertures accurate to 0.0005" and mechanically strip fiber coatings with no nicks, cuts or scratches.
For removing secondary coatings of 900µm from 125µm clad fibers, select the blue or white handled tool, for 250µm loose tube fibers, select the red handled tool from the table below. Optical fibers with cladding diameters greater than 125µm may be successfully stripped using No-Nik buffer stripping tools.
Notes on using No-Nik stripping tools:
Each tool has an arrow showing the direction of stripping; holding the tool in the right hand the arrow should be on top; holding the tool in the left hand the arrow should be under the tool.
Don't try and strip all the buffer in one go, take three or four 'bites' at it to remove the coating. Between each strip clean the tool by opening the jaws and pulling the plastic covers back and releasing. Leaving debris in the blades between strips can cause fiber breakage.
