During the past 56 years we have developed a line of products that command considerable interest in the market place. Our relationship to the camera industry led us to the development in 1973 of a line of ultraviolet curing adhesives originally used for bonding lenses, but later branching out into military and commerical optics, Fiber Optics, LEDs, LCDs, OLEDs, Lasers, Lithography, Wave Guides, microfabrication, Bioscience and Electronic applications....
Most of our products are unique and must have high performance properties with definite advantages to be accepted over alternative products in the market place. For instance, our ultraviolet curing optical adhesives are one part adhesives that cure in seconds when exposed to UV light and are used for bonding lenses, prisms and other precision optics. The speed and accuracy allowed by these products are advantageous to the user but it is the high optical quality and superior physical performance that leads the customer to choose it over other products on the market.
Another example is our high purity gelatin. We extract the gelatin from the skins of cold water fish to make a unique product used by a variety of industries ranging from technical to the food and pharmaceutical. Our gelatin is different than regular animal gelatin in that a water solution remains a liquid at room temperature instead of a gel. This offers great advantages in handling the material in production,minimizing difficulties such as temperature and viscosity control, yet providing the desirable properties only available from gelatin.
For the last 24 years we have been supplying interferometric test equipment to the fiber optics industry. This has been an evolutionary process because of the changing needs of the customers to meet more rigorous standards. By investing the necessary time and money in the computer technology that has become available in the last few years(speed and memory), we have made great strides in advancing interferometric technology to new levels.
Selling to the worldwide market, we get a special satisfaction from doing things no other company is doing. By specializing in certain areas, we have developed a reputation of excellence in our fields. It is this reputation we strive to uphold as we develop new ideas and new products for industry.
