Electroplating Enhances Surface Finish
ELECTRODEPOSITION is a long standing and highly valuable manufacturing process used to alter surface properties of optical components.
Also known as electroplating, electrodeposition is a process where a metal component is overlayed with another type of metal through ion exchange in order to modify its surface properties. Optiforms primarily uses electroplating to enhance reflectivity of precision optical components.
- High reflectance in near, mid, and far IR regions
- Wavelength: 400 nm to 5000 nm
- Operating Temperature: -50° C to 100° C
