First Contact™ Polymer
For better customer service and to aid finding products more easily we have separated our red and colorless polymers into their own categories. Please view our red formula kits and bulk bottles on the Red First Contact Polymer page.
First Contact is a proprietary blend of solvents designed to clean
first surface mirrors, diffraction gratings, and diffractive optics to the molecular level. First Contact is low-adhesion, leaves no residue, and is carefully designed not to thermally shock or remove coatings – simply apply, dry, and peel to reveal an atomically clean, contaminant-free surface.

When your interferometer needs to measure movement thousands of times smaller than a proton, your system’s optical components must be completely free of contamination and residue in order to perform with unprecedented precision. Learn how First Contact outperforms traditional drag wipe cleaning methods, ensuring a pristinely clean, protected surface.
