G-S Plastic Optics (G-SPO) announced today the completion of its most recent plant expansion through the establishment of an in-house coating facility. In April, the company integrated a precision optical coating system built by Vacuum Process Technology Inc. (VPT). This new coating capability positions G-SPO in the forefront for coating technology specific to polymer substrates. Will Beich, director of new business development for G-SPO, said, “This is an essential component of our ongoing facility expansion. We continue to vertically integrate key functions into our operation. Many of the optics that we mold require reflection coatings, such as gold, silver or aluminum or an antireflective coating. By bringing this capability on site, we will be able to improve our operational efficiency and offer our customers greater flexibility and responsiveness to their production demands.” G-SPO will focus on providing state-of-the-art vacuum deposited coatings on polymer substrates such as PMMA, Styrene, Polycarbonate, Zeonex, Zeonor and Topas. The facility is complete with in-house metrology, including reflection and transmission measurement capability on both PerkinElmer Lambda 650 and Lambda 10 UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometers and other proprietary film characterization resources.
