Specialty Formulations

Most of our Specialty Formulations are listed above and have their own Shop Now Category. However, our ESD Formula polymer and our Yellow Polymer in DRS Specific Viscosity are only listed here. Our ESD Formula is recommended when cleaning static-sensitive surfaces such as CCD and CMOS sensors that are not mounted or grounded. The ESD Formula polymer employs carbon nanotubes to create a small amount of electrical connectivity to the polymer. Read about ESD Formula performance and the Dark Energy Survey DECam CCD cleaning results.

Proven Results

Sequential progression First Contact cleaning BRDF test.
[LIGO / Caltech / MIT]

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.

Shipping Restrictions
We cannot ship to P.O. boxes. We must have a physical address in order to ship First Contact Polymers.

Coated Optics
Certain coatings have inherently poor adhesion, especially if manufactured without effective substrate preparation, particularly gold and silver coatings and replicated aluminum gratings. Always test on an inconspicuous or non-critical area first.
