Epolin Supplies Dyes and Polycarbonate Pellets to Makers of Laser Protective Eyewear

Now a division of Chroma Color Corp., Epolin advises makers of laser protective eyewear that there are four vital factors to consider when sourcing materials and suppliers.

Laser pointers and pens can distract pilots and law enforcement personnel, in addition to causing temporary or permanent eye damage. Individuals and government agencies are purchasing more high-quality laser protective eyewear than ever before. Since 1983, Epolin has produced high-quality materials to suit manufacturer requirements using either Epolite dyes or Luminate pellets.

Now a division of Chroma Color Corp., Epolin advises makers of laser protective eyewear that there are four vital factors to consider when choosing materials:

  1. Red-, blue-, and green-colored laser pens and pointers are universally available for purchase. Laser protective eyewear absorbs or blocks the emission wavelength of the laser.
  2. Consider whether you want to absorb one or more of the three laser colors with your eyewear. Epolin can help choose the right formulation.
  3. Laser protective eyewear should also provide the highest visible light transmittance during day and night, and deliver the right amount of laser protection without impeding the wearer’s vision.
  4. No one wants to lose their eyesight. Consider choosing a high-quality laser-absorbing material from a well-established supplier with technical expertise in these materials.

A global developer and manufacturer of near-infrared absorbing dyes and thermoplastic compounds, Epolin provides materials for laser and welding eyewear, light filters, touch screens, night-vision products, sensors, LiDAR, security inks, and more.
