AR Stripper

  • Quickly Removes AR Coatings
  • Simple Cold Dip and Rinse Process (Takes 30 Seconds to 3 Minutes)
  • No Expensive Equipment Needed
  • Economical AR Stripping Kit

AR Stripper, from Phantom ® Research Laboratories Inc., is a stripping formula for removing Anti-Reflective (AR) coatings from plastic CR-39 TM lenses. Removing the AR coating is a simple cold dip and rinse process that takes 30 seconds to 3 minutes (depending on the type of AR coating) .

Prepare the Stripping Solution in a plastic container using cold or warm tap water. Use the all-plastic lens holder to handle the lenses. Metal and glass materials are not compatible with the Stripping Solution and should not be used. We recommend using our AR Stripping Kit (Item #C493). AR coated lenses are widely used and becoming increasingly popular. Optical outlets and labs should be equipped to remove these coatings.
