Bisphera Industrial Edger for Ophthalmic Lenses


Abrasive Resistant Coatings

HCoating introduces their latest abrasion-resistant coating for ophthalmic lenses,  HCoating-AB. HCoating-AB is a UV-curable super-hard coating and serves as a perfect base for AR coatings. HCoating-AB was formulated as a result of Arotek's continued Intra-Molecular Altering (IMA) technology development. IMA is an alteration of molecular design within a chemical to produce the desired and stabilized structure and viscosity. HCoating-AB further enhances the properties of non-tintable hard coating and offers the best adhesion, abrasion resistance, and AR compatibility. It adheres well to all kinds of lenses including CR-39, Polycarbonate, Trivex, 1.56, and High Index up to index 1.74. The Bayer ratio after AR is close to thermally cured hard coatings.
