A super concentrated liquid formula for making CR-39 TM lenses capable of absorbing ultraviolet radiation up to 400 nm in a simple treatment process. This formula is compatible with Anti-Reflection coatings, tinting, scratch resistance coating processes, and comes in 4 fl. oz. bottles. It is the economy version of OptiSafe I with sightly slower absorbing rate and lower yield.

UV treat lenses easily by dipping the lenses into UV solution heated to 205-210°F (96-99°C) for 3-10 minutes.

For further detailed instructions refer to UV instructions on the container.

    Properties (Item#C341)
  • 1. One or more tanks in your dye heating unit can be allocated to heat the UV formula. An indirect heating unit utilizing heat transfer fluid is strongly recommended (e.g., Phantom ® Heating System). Any direct heating unit must incorporate stirring action to become suitable for heating the UV formula.
  • 2. Clean lens holder. Lens holder used for UV treatment should not be dipped in other solutions to prevent cross contamination.
