3M™ Hot Melt Fibre Optic

Connectors, Kits andAccessories


3M™ Hot Melt Connectors are among the most popular with contractors because of their reliability and ease of use. They come pre-loaded with an adhesive that is not limited in shelf life, and the termination procedure provides the ability to reheat and reposition the fibre in the termination process. This easy- to-install field mount connector provides reliable performance in indoor and outdoor applications and has no internal splice.

All 3M™ Hot Melt connectors can be terminated using the same 3M™ Hot Melt Termination Kit 6365/6361. 3M™ LC Connectors require the 3M™ LC Expansion Kit 6650-LC which includes a weighted polishing jig to provide a PC centred apex end face.
