IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PRISMS

Prisms from cameras made up to about 1970, are no problem. After that date

it seems plastic based protective paints became more widely used to protect

the coatings.

These we find almost impossible to remove. We can only wait for the

acid paste we apply to creep through the damaged part of the coating.

We have customer's prisms showing very little change after more than a year.

We cannot therefore advise you how long it will take to remove

the protective 'paint'

Turn around time seems to average at least a year.

Also please be advised that we vacuum coat items with pure aluminium.

Again if you require a silver coating, this is a different process

and not possible for us. (Silver reflects about 5% more light )


Ground Glass Screens

We can also make custom ground glass screens for tele-cine devices and camera POA
