We have been in business since 1952 and are specialists in high vacuum coatings and processes, offering a wide range of services.
Our main services are below but for a more comprehensive list, please visit our About Us page.


Prices and more detail on our main services can be found by selecting the categories below. The three mainly astronomical categories, sextant, camera mirrors and prisms are handled by Vacuum Coatings Scientific Mirrors (VCSM). Due to the nature of our work, it's not possible to give prices for all of our services as many will be priced according to specific client requirements so please contact us if you're not able to find what you're looking for.

Please note that there is a minium charge of £25 for any re-coating order

Payment (non-account customers)
Payment may be made via telephone, by credit or debit card. We also accept Bank Transfers (account details available on request) or by enclosing a cheque with items for re-coating with payment to VCSM.

Payment may also be made by PayPal if you do not wish to use our more direct method by phone. This may also be a simpler method than by bank transfer for our overseas customers.Payment via Western Union is also possible..

At present our PayPal service is not a comprehensive 'buy-online link' as most of our sales are tailor-made to customer requirements. If you wish to pay by PayPal you'll already have either made your choice by telephone or email and once your order has been received and/or completed a PayPal invoice will be emailed to you. After payment is received we will contact you regarding delivery of your order.
