              We only ship to the UK and Northern ireland. To find an agent in your part of the world please contact the manufacturer - Photonic cleaning technologies

              Available in 2 colours - water clear for normal cleaning and red for protected storage, the dye giving a very clear indication of the protective coating. note: water clear and red coatings are used in exactly the same way.

              We have used this product for laser mirrors, dichroic mirrors, lenses, cavity optics and scanner mirrors as well as camera lenses and digital camera sensors. We did also sucessfully clean the output facet of a multiwatt 808nm laser diode using this product!

              New for 2015 the 15ml applicator packs now come with some peel tabs and samples of the unwaxed floss andinert nylon mesh (as pictured) providing three methods of removal of the cured polymer. The floss and mesh are designed to be embeded in the polymer while its being applied and then can be used for polymer removal.

              FIRST CONTACT™ Polymer Solutions clean and protect nanostructures, precision surfaces, optics, glass, fused silica, silicon, crystals, non-linear crystals, metals, Ge, ZnSe, NaCl, KBr, KRS-5, first surface mirrors and telescope optics. First Contact™ polymers also clean and protect diffraction gratings, phase masks, and pinholes! Smooth or rough, flat or curved; AR and reflective coatings, all surfaces can be safely, easily cleaned and protected with FIRST CONTACT™. The fluid solution conforms to any contour, the polymer film releases easily. GET 'NEXT GENERATION' CLEAN! PREVENT RECONTAMINATION!
              FIRST CONTACT™ is a non-toxic, inert polymer designed to remove dust, fingerprints, residues and contaminants from delicate, sensitive, and precision surfaces without scratching or damage.

              Quote from customer John M Sonley -  I've just completed the exercise of treating all my 1st surface holography mirrors in my current holography table set-up with First Contact - fantastic results!
              The small red dot produced on each mirror from my unexpanded 33mW HeNe is far less visible now - suggesting less scattered light and a much cleaner surface.
               I left the polymer to dry and harden for 24 hours and it came away from each optical surface so easily.

              Although £24 sounds expensive for a small bottle i can honestly say it is worth it. As mentioned in the description, it provides an excellent way of preventing contamination of mirrors when equipment is in transit or not being used for a period of time. I found It extremely easy to apply, and once dry leaves a very thin film (a bit like cling film) across the surface. In my case It was then a case of simply touching the surface of the dry film with a small piece of masking tape and the whole lots lifts off.

              Easily the best way to clean optics. Simple to use and effective at leaving the surface spotless. Takes some practice to get it right, and patience to leave it long enough before removing but nothing comes close.

              It's a boon.
