ZC&R Coatings for Optics Offers Expanded Family of Precision Hot Mirrors

Torrance, CA - ZC&R Coatings for Optics (, part of ABRISA, Inc. (, offers a full line of heat control, dichroic optical coatings that filter unnecessary energy (heat) from a light source. The expanded family of precision hot mirrors is ideal for separating unwanted infrared from visible light for applications in medical, defense, aerospace, life sciences, imaging, astronomy, and entertainment industries.

The HM-VS-950 Hot Mirrors are affordable and reliable; they transmit the visible spectrum and reflect the infrared (IR) at normal incidence. ZC&R's UV-Pass Hot Mirrors, HM-UV-1050, are designed to transmit greater than 80 percent (average) from the 245 to 460 nm spectral range, and reflect greater than 70 percent (average) from 800 to 1050 nm at normal incidence.

ZC&R's HM-VS-1150 Color Neutral Hot Mirrors are ideal for imaging applications that require high color fidelity. They transmit the visible spectrum with minimal impact to color while reflecting significant IR energy. For extreme performance, the HM-VS-1500 Hot Mirrors offer enhanced UV blocking with durable, reliable operation. The Extended-Wavelength IR Blocker Hot Mirrors round out the product family to cover a wider waveband in the infrared with the HM-VS-1600. Custom angles of incidence are also available, per customer specifications.

ZC&R and ABRISA deliver high quality, standard and customized precision coating solutions with high-volume capabilities. For more information about the precision hot mirror product line, please visit:
