Fiber Stripping Tip:

Fibers must be stripped of all protective coatings prior to inserting into a connector.  Mechanical stripping, by far the most common method, consists of using tools with sharp, precisely machined metal cutting blades to cut into the protective layer and strip it away from the fiber.   It is important for the blades to cut a clean, neat edge on the protective coating, and that the blades do not contact or scratch the bare fiber during stripping.
