OptiSource Introduces Super Intermediary-Film-Pad (IFP)
Product: Super Intermediary Film Pad (IFP)
Top Line: OptiSource International has developed a second generation anti-slip film disc designated for the challenges of today’s and future hydrophobic coating developments. Lens and coating companies are pushing technology boundaries with higher surface contact angles, leading to slicker, more oil-resistant coatings. The Super IFP is a clear, thin film pad that has a specially formulated high-tack adhesive designed to grip to the smoothest, slickest, most oil-resistant surfaces; while its top side is designed to have any standard blocking pad adhere to it. After edging, the Super IFP is easily removed and leaves no residue on the lens.
Close Up: OptiSource introduced the original IFP over eight years ago as one of the original solutions to edging hydrophobic AR coated lenses. The IFP was a solid performing pad that many labs and ECPs have come to rely on to improve edging success and reduce breakage. “Today’s super hydro/oleophobic lenses are more advanced than just six-months ago,” said Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource. “Edging pads have been challenged to keep up with these ever-changing coating demands. Our Super IFP Pad eliminates slippage while edging these lenses and provides a cost effective solution to the customer.”
Vital Stats: Due to its high-strength adhesive, Super IFP is only recommended for use on super hydrophobic and oleophobic rated coatings.
