Why is icky pic so hard to clean? It’s not — if you have the right icky pic solvent. The stuff is “icky” is because the gel is a petroleum-based, highly viscous fluid that resists water and weak solvents. You’ll find icky pic on all the cables that are engineered for outside plant, and they’re usually the stranded “loose tube” cables. By the way, in addition to be messy the gel is highly flammable. So getting a good solvent is a huge time-saver.

In addition to cleaning icky pic gel, the Sticklers™ cleaning pen frequently is found in datacom applications where removing identifying labels from racks and cable bundles can be a problem. It’s also used on installation trucks where techs are blowing fiber and splicing.

The package also eliminates issues from many less sophisticated products, such as spills, fumes and odors. The package is recyclable aluminum. Use with the Sticklers™ Benchtop CleanWipes.
