Optical Coating

 

We are now producing 96%, multi-layer (4) enhanced aluminum coatings. Standard Aluminum coatings are available upon request. Our cryogenic systems  consistently produce first rate coatings each and every time. In side by side comparisons, our coatings are brighter and more brilliant than the competition.

Simply the best!

We remove old coatings and center spot at no additional charge. We always offer the best service.

For those of you in Southern California, we welcome "walk-ins". Save on shipping and have a greater piece of mind of hand delivering your optics to us.

 

Ostahowski Optics, Inc. uses a dilute solution of hydrochloric acid and copper sulfate to remove old coating. This solution safely removes the old coating without affecting the underlying glass or optical figure. This method has been used safely for years, it is gentle but is effective on aluminum and the over-coating on top of the aluminum.

 

*Ostahowski Optics, Inc. is not liable or responsible  for unknown prior surface damage due to previous improper cleaning and/or coating techniques.

We assume no liability for damage of any kind. We will use utmost care in handling your optics for coating but our coatings will not fix scratches, sleeks, a lack of a complete polish or.figuring defects.

 

Same day service is available. Conditions will/may apply and a service surcharge will be added. Please contact us for additional information.

Optic recoats: It is very important to let us know in advance if you suspect your optics have a di-electric coating or a base coating of Chrome, Inconel or Nickel. We can not remove di-electric coatings - period. We can remove the base layer if it is Nickel, Inconel or chrome. We do not see this very often and it can add to a slight delay in processing your order.

Our coatings are completely strippable.
