Coatings on Plastics
AccuCoat has developed processes that enable us to effectively provide coatings on plastics, including Zeonex, Ultem, and high-index OKP materials with optical thin films that can meet the difficult environmental requirements of today's MIL-SPECs and ISO specifications. Typical tests include abrasion, humidity and multiday temperature cycling. Wide-angle AR coatings, beamsplitters, and dielectric mirrors are some of the products we have developed for a range of applications from the visible to the IR.

Coating on SPDT and Molded Materials
AccuCoat has 20 years of experience in coating single-point diamond-turned polymer (SPDT) optics and molded optics. We continue to identify and qualify new materials for use in fabricating optics such as OKP materials.
