UV and IR coatings

Coatings against UV and IR rays

UV coating: (UV)

Glass and plastic can be coated to decrease the amount of ultraviolet radiation that passes through.
It is a transparent filter covered with a special coating which absorbes UV rays.

IR protective filters:

IR-Cut filters are frequently used as heat-absorbing filters since they let the visible spectral range pass while the infrared rays from 780nm on are strongly blocked.
These infrared filters are often used to protect IR-sensitive sensors or used in illumination systems.

Application fields:

– IR protective filters for scenic and artistic lighting
– IR protective filters for lighting systems
