What is the difference between a ceramic ferrule and a polymer ferrule?
Zirconia ceramic ferrules offer several distinct advantages over polymers, which is why Corning uses zirconia ceramic ferrules exclusively in single-fiber UniCam Connectors: Ceramic ferrules are chip and crack resistant; smaller grain sizes achieve smoother finishes; their thermal expansion coefficients are closer to that of the fiber; and they have a higher modulus of elasticity and greater impact resistance.

Can I use the TKT-UNICAM-PFC to install APC connectors?

Customers can install APC connectors using the installation tools provided in the TKT-UNICAM-PFC kit; however, the cleaver in this kit provides flat cleaves, so a different cleaver will needed to generate an angled cleave before terminating the APC connector in the installation tool, assuming an angled cleave is desired. At room temperatures, using a flat cleave is acceptable. An angled cleave is needed when the connector is installed in environments with temperature swings (outdoor environments).​

Corning Optical Communications offers an angled cleaver, the FBC-014 that can be used with APC UniCam Connectors.
