Custom Coatings for Polymer Optics

Polymer substrate optics continue to be a popular go-to for lightweight, low-cost options for applications in military, aerospace, and consumer use. We coat in high volumes regularly for our customers needing a routine coating or a specially designed result.

We offer a comprehensive list of materials that have proven processes for high-level results, from Acrylic to Zeonex, including Polystyrene, Polycarbonate, Zeonem, Ultem, and high-index OKP. When coated by us, all meet the environmental requirements of MIL-SPEC and ISO specifications.

If your needs include diamond-turned or molded polymer substrates, we have 20 years of experience for successful coating at every run. As new polymer materials become available, our team creates new processes to be sure that your needs are met and optics are delivered on time.

Coatings are created to be index matched when required, and all customer specifications are met through the use of our thin-film design programs.

WNY Golf Tournament

Another successful fundraiser is in the (golf) bag for Golisano Children's Hospital. We are proud to have supported a team on the course, a Hole Sponsorship, and part of the Lunch Sponsorship for this year's sell-out crowd. We added to the dinner auction with the addition of a fun Buffalo Bill's golf bag. 

Our team this year consisted of Paul, Alan, Marty Roberts (retired QED) and Kelly DeYager (RPO). Pat was also on course for the event.
It was a fantastic day of golf!


FEATURED CASE STUDY - Surgical Visor Prototyping

Visor coatings for a prototype surgical visor allow wireless connectivity in a headset while operating. AccuCoat developed the prototype beamsplitter and AR coatings on plastic lenses for this visor portion of the headset.

This design will allow the projection of visual data for the surgeon during surgery, supporting multiple camera views and X-rays. Several prototype versions have been created for testing this exciting technology.

We'll be attending the upcoming SPIE Optics & Photonics show.
Will we see you there?
