Photonic Cleaning Technologies LLC’s First Contact polymer solution is a strip coat cleaner for coated laser optics. It consists of polymers in a complex solvent system. It strongly adheres to itself and to particulate contaminants but only minimally to the optic’s surface. It dries to a flexible film that peels off easily, leaving a clean surface with no scratches. It can be sprayed, poured, dropped or brushed onto the optic to clean off contaminants, nanoparticulates and fingerprints, leaving no residue. It is ready to use directly from the bottle.
