Coating IR Materials Requires Specific Expertise

 

AccuCoat offers standard AR (anti-reflective) coatings on IR (infra-red) substrates to all of our customers. Used in a wide range of high-efficiency broadband, narrowband and dual-band anti-reflective optical coatings, our IR coatings for these specific substrates have been created for fast-growing tech and developing military applications.

Custom-designed solutions are also available from our in-house coating engineer. If you have a specific need, please contact us to discuss how we can help you get the best result for your project.

Durability

AR coatings for IR substrates have been tested to meet Military Specifications for adhesion, abrasion, temperature and humidity. These coatings may be cleaned with alcohol, acetone or a mild soap solution.
