Quantum Offers Safe, Economical Etching Material

Product: FusionEtch
Top Line: AR laboratories etch lenses to provide the foundation for a reliable AR coating. The etching process has historically relied on a product that is caustic and can be expensive. FusionEtch is formulated to provide the same performance quality, but in a way that is safer to handle and at a cost savings to the lab, according to Quantum Innovations.
Close Up: To provide greater safety, Quantum has prepackaged FusionEtch into quantities that specifically match the requirements of the lab’s equipment. This means lab employees no longer have to scoop approximate amounts from a 100 pound container and contend with dust and residue. Instead, the accurately sized packages are safe, easier to load, and dissolve easily.
“FusionEtch is formulated to provide the same performance quality, but in a way that is safer to handle and at a cost savings to the lab,” said Chris Foley, national sales manager for Quantum Innovations. “Made in the USA, labs can order pre‐packaged amounts for their system’s daily use, which is much easier and safer for lab staff to use. It’s a simple solution for daily maintenance.”
