Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials' Specialty Abrasives group has launched a new line of plastic lens polishing compounds for the ophthalmic industry to polish MR lens, polyurethane lens and polycarbonate lens.

Our patented plastic lens slurries were first proven to be effective on conventional polishing machines that rotated in symmetrical and spherical motion until the desired optical surfaces were achieved. We have also developed a line of polishing compounds suitable for Freeform optical polishing machines, which are automated machines capable of producing accurate and highly polished surface shapes by devising mathematical equations to achieve the desired surface shape. In our lab, we have fine tuned our plastic lens slurries to accommodate different polishing parameters and conditions. We have products to meet the needs of most plastic lens polishers.
