Cleaning Optical Assemblies
Vertrel® specialty fluids are used to obtain clean and spot-free optical assemblies and lenses. Though lenses and optical assemblies are relatively uncomplicated in shape and have a smooth surface, they can be very tough to clean. Contaminants typically removed are dust, polishing media, and water spots. Material compatibility is an issue because lenses or their thin coatings are made of plastics.
Vertrel® specialty fluids have emerged as the best choice for manufacturers of lenses and optical assemblies.
Vertrel® specialty fluids are used extensively to clean optical fibers to ensure that they are joined properly after being spliced, preventing signal loss. Typical contaminants are light soils and fingerprints; however, the small fiber size, which can be as small as 8 microns in diameter, is the larger problem. Vertrel® has good cleaning capability and quick drying property that ensures a clean joining surface and thereby no signal loss due to imperfect joints.
Cleaning Flat Screens
Vertrel® specialty fluids are used to clean flat screen panels for applications such as plasma TVs. Vertrel® is very effective in getting rid of soils such as dust, light oils, and fingerprints, leaving behind a contaminant-free and spot-free surface.
