Other specialized coatings are available upon request.

Protected Aluminum Coating

Protected Aluminum Coating

  • Protected Aluminum mirrors may be gently cleaned using standard contact cleaning methods.
  • Average reflectance of greater than 88% from 450-650nm.
  • Maintains high reflectivity in the infrared.

Bare Aluminum Coating

Bare Aluminum Coating

  • Bare Aluminum coating is very soft and cannot be cleaned using standard contact methods.
  • Absolute reflectance remains above 85% from 200-2000nm.
  • Reflectance continues to rise in the infrared.
