•    flat or curved optical surfaces
•    cures overnight or quicker
•    suitable for wide range of optical materials

Photonic-Cleaning_RedStarterKit.jpgPhotonics and Analytical Marketing is the distributor of First Contact polymer solutions in the UK and Ireland. From Photonic Cleaning Technologies LLC, the product cleans and protects optical surfaces, nanostructures and components, producing a protective film over products for assembly, shipping and storage. Analytical instrument and camera system manufacturers use the polymer to clean components, and so do the users of scientific instruments and astronomical telescopes, and even of lenses, diffraction gratings and phase masks. Its ability to clean fingerprints from expensive diffraction gratings extends their working life and reduces scrap.

The user paints the polymer onto the flat or curved surface using the brush supplied with the applicator bottle. It is suitable for surfaces made of glass, fused silica, silicon, nonlinear crystals, metals, Ge, ZnSe, NaC1, KBr and KRS-5. The polymer cures as its solvent evaporates. For frosted surfaces, diffraction gratings and mirrors with silver or gold coatings, the curing process becomes complete overnight. The polymer cures more quickly for small flat optics. To remove the film, the user applies a lint-free peel tab to the edge of the cured film and lifts the complete film, taking any dust, fingerprints and residue along with it.
