A lapping film must have the highest lot-to-lot consistency.  When you establish your process there are many factors to control and the film might rank at the top.  Others include, but aren’t limited to the quality of your polishing machine, its fixturing and rubber pads, and the connectors you are using.  If your supplier switches ferrules or changes springs, your polished results may change.

So when you are developing your processes you need to be sure all these items are controlled, and most importantly, you need lapping film that will act the same every time.  Anything short of that can provide inconsistent results. Know your ferrule manufacturer. I have sold equipment that measures concentricity and eccentricity ferrule measurements for that precise purpose. If your ferrule changes most likely your process will too.
