Thousands of systems are in use in Europe, the USA, Mexico and across Asia and every one of these systems needs a suuply of the CleanBlast™ HFE-based cleaning fluid.

Now packaged in the Sticklers® factory, the CleanBlast™ fluid will manufactured to the Viavi specification. It is 100% compatible with the Viavi CleanBlast™ machine. The fluid is packaged in the same industry-standard 225ml brown glass bottles and will exactly fit the Viavi CleanBlast™ fibre cleaning systems. The fluid itself is a nonflammable HFE blend which is the exact, drop-in replacement for the cleaning fluid provided with the Viavi Solutions CleanBlast™ systems; no adjustments to the machine will be required. Part numbers and exterior packaging remains identical to the Viavi specifications.

After the ECOC exhibition, Viavi Solutions will no longer offer the cleaning fluid and instead refer customers needing CleanBlast™ fluids to Sticklers® distributors world-wide. For more information, contact Sticklers® distributors or visit:
