Coburn Technologies Intros Pinnacle Lite Polish

Product: Pinnacle Lite Polish
Top Line: Coburn Technologies is introducing Pinnacle Lite Polish, a proprietary optical polishing slurry featuring advanced chemistry and premium ingredients.
Close Up: “Our goal was to address the common issues with the polishing compounds on the market today. Operators and equipment are impacted by the corrosive, caustic compounds that have been used for decades. The latest backside coating technologies require surfaces that promote coating adhesion. Lab managers strive for consistent, high quality, high luster surfaces on their finished lenses. In order to fulfill these needs and create a truly unique product, we left the beaten path behind and developed the product from the ground up. We believe we have created something special,” said Dan Clarke, product development manager for Coburn’s Lab Works Group.
Key features include:
  • Sustained suspension
  • “Slick” feel has a lower impact on skin and equipment, and is easy to clean up
  • Polished surfaces exhibit a noticeably brighter sheen
  • Superior coating adhesion for backside coated lenses
  • Produces top quality surfaces consistently
  • Long lasting/durable
Vital Stats: Pinnacle Lite Polish is qualified for use on all conventional equipment, all non-mineral materials and all surfaces. It is available in one gallon jugs and five gallon buckets.
Pinnacle Lite Product is available worldwide, and online for US customers at For prices or package offer information, contact the Coburn Lab Works division directly at (866) 450-0412 or call (800) COBURN-1 and ask for the Lab Works Group.
