Plastic optical elements appear in a broad spectrum of commercial, military and medical applications. The use of plastic as an optical material adds lots of flexibility for the optics designer, as well as the potential for cost reductions in the system. Plastic optics can be molded with mounting features as part of the optic, reducing the need for complex mounting schemes.
EMF specializes in coating plastic substrates, for both optical and decorative applications. We provide the following plastic coatings:
- Reflective metal coatings, which include protected and enhanced Gold, Aluminum, and Silver
- Single and multilayer broadband anti-reflection (AR) coatings
With fourteen 96″ chambers and flexible tooling, EMF can easily handle large size and high volume. We coat a wide variety of plastic substrates including Zeonex, polycarbonate, PMMA, PET, PEEK, Acrylic and CR-39.
