Gold Series Rubber Pads

The Gold Series Precision Rubber Pads by Domaille Engineering Fiber Optic Equipment are designed to control process variation. This innovative solution incorporates refined materials, advanced mixing technology, and precise processing methods, ensuring rigorous testing to uphold our commitment to quality.

The Gold Series Precision Rubber Pads took Domaille Engineering over three years to develop. The initial request came from several OEM clients who noticed a pattern in their rejection levels. The root cause of the rejections was a variation in the durometer of their rubber backing pads, which was changing the end face geometry. Most commercially available rubber pads for fiber optic polishing are not tested for durometer and have a wide range of variation between lots of rubber (+/-5 durometer or more is very common). Domaille worked with several OEM clients to develop and document accurate testing methods.

The rubber processing looked at refined materials, mixing technology, and processing methods. Combined with the accurate testing, Domaille was finally able to come up with a repeatable process capable of holding the durometer to within +/- 2 Shore A when tested at 71°+/-1 F. The Gold Series Precision Rubber Locking Pads are also available for purchase.
