High-Volume and Large Format Plastic Coatings
Plastic-coated optics (plastic coatings) are used in consumer electronics, industrial, military and medical applications. The use of plastic as an optical material affords a lot of flexibility for optical designers during the optical design process and potential cost savings in the overall optical sub-system. Plastic-coated optics can be molded with mounts as part of the optic, reducing the need for complex mounting schemes.
EMF specializes in coating plastics for optical and decorative applications.
- Reflective metal coatings, which include protected and enhanced Gold, Aluminum, and Silver
- Single and multi-layer Broadband Anti-Reflection (BBAR) coatings
With flexible tooling and 26 vacuum coating chambers providing 40 million sq. in. of coating capacity EMF can very easily manage large format and high volume plastic coatings. EMF can coat a wide variety of plastic substrates including Zeonex, polycarbonate, PMMA, PET, PEEK, Acrylic and CR-39.
EMF has coated 1.7 million plastic substrates over 8 years without a single field failure.
