ZC&R Coatings for Optics
Photonics West 2011 – Torrance, CA – ZC&R Coatings for Optics, a division of Abrisa Technologies, provides both hydrophilic and hydrophobic optical coatings for applications such as outdoor surveillance, camera windows, outdoor displays, marine displays, medical devices, and more.
ZC&R’s hydrophilic coatings reduce distortion by interacting positively with water, causing condensates to spread uniformly over the surface of the coated glass; sheeting water rather than forming droplets that scatter light. Perfect for outdoor use or in environments where moisture is present, hydrophilic coatings can be combined with all ZC&R specialty coatings for a highly customized solution. Durable and cost-effective, this ion-assisted inorganic hard coating functions well in high humidity situations.
ZC&R hydrophilic coatings can be applied on glass substrates for optics applications with wavelengths between 350 nm and 2700 nm. In addition, the durable coatings comply with MIL-C-675C for severe abrasion.
ZC&R’s hydrophobic coatings can be provided in both coated and laminated solutions for repelling moisture. Ideal for touch screens, the water repellant hydrophobic coating creates a barrier against dirt, dust and a host of liquids.
