One of NanoTechnology Manufacturing strengths is the ability to manufacture clear optical plastics. These products have broad applications and there are many types of materials customers can choose from based on their product requirements. These include:
Polycarbonate (trade name Lexan)
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA, also just called acrylic, trade name Plexiglas)
Cyclic Polyolefins (trade name Zeonor)
Polystyrene (many trade names)
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, ABS
Clear optical plastics also have a wide range of temperature resistance and chemical resistance although chemical resistance is usually not a major concern since optical systems usually don't get exposed to severe chemical environments.
The biggest advantage possessed by clear optical plastics over other materials is their price and processability. Prices for glasses can be very expensive and they don't process very quickly.
NanoTechnology Manufacturing is also able to provide our valued customers with lens inserts and more because we have the equipment and the expertise in using the process to provide some of the finest optics possible
