Plastic Optics / Coatings on Plastics

Optics Balzers offers customized coating solutions and components using all the major optical plastics. Depending on the requirements, Optics Balzers applies state-of-the-art coating technologies such as IAD evaporation or sputtering on customer supplied substrates, as well as on full turnkey components.


Plastic enables new optical design methods, including:

  • Cost savings due to reduced part counts and lower assembly time
  • Aberration correction using aspheric lenses 
  • Integration of mechanical features with color correction surfaces (e.g. snap-in mounting features with Kinoforms)
  • Diffractive surfaces for beam shaping of laser applications
  • Significant cost economies over glass for high volume production.
