  • How to Tell if a Surface is Coated, and Which Surfaces are Coated
    How can you tell which side of an optic is coated? Let's say you consult the print and it says Side 1 should be coated. So which is Side 1? Assuming your design team anticipated this question, you should be able to find an edge arrow, fiducial mark, distinctive bevel, or an asymmetrical
  • What is Neoprene Coated Fabric Used For?
    Neoprene-coated fabric is a material that is commonly used in industrial settings and high-temperature applications. The fabric serves as a protective barrier for many standard applications because the neoprene coating is resistant to abrasion, chemical agents and combustion. In this blog post, we
  • Hand Cleaning of Small Coated Optics
    This note describes the procedure for hand cleaning of small (= 2 inch diameter) thin film coated optics. The steps presented are safe for the vast majority of optical coatings, which are typically composed of durable dielectric and semiconductor materials. However, some substrates and coatings may
  • Test Report: PEEK Coated Optical Fiber Evaluation
    To evaluate the utility and performance of PEEK coated optical fibers and Zeus' coating process, Zeus, in conjunction with Luna Innovations Incorporated, carried out testing of PEEK coated and uncoated single-mode Nufern 155 um polyimide R1550B-P optical fiber. Testing was done to compare
  • Community Development Project Produces Unique Lumiflon-Coated Pedestrian Bridge
    Castle Bridge is comprised of painted steelwork and hardwood decking protected with A&I Coatings' Vitreflon, a high-performance fluropolymer. Enhanced with Lumiflon FEVE resin technology, surfaces that are coated with Vitreflon are benefit from excellent durability, weatherability, and high color
  • Coating of Brake Disc
    Safety is of course a top priority for carmakers. Which is why they coat brake discs to prevent corrosion. Coating with Geomet-one of the world's leading coating products-ensures top-level protection, especially in salty atmospheres. But as we'll see, post-coating induction drying and curing
  • The Importance of Powder Coating
    In industries of manufacturing, the term "powder coating" is fairly common. However, when a client orders custom springs, they may not fully understand what powder coating is and its importance to the durability and longevity of a spring product. A powder coat is a tough, slender
  • Anti-Reflection Coatings
    the system (ghost images). Anti-reflection coatings are especially important if the system contains many transmitting optical elements. Many low-light systems incorporate AR coated optics to allow for efficient use of light. The curve below demonstrates the difference between an uncoated and coated single
