ACW has updated its brochures for resins for P-NIL applications. The updated brochures include the results of environmental and thermal shock stress tests on resins coated on glass. The environmental stress tests were 1000 hours at 85 °C and 85% relative humidity. The thermal shock tests were 1000 cycles of 150 °C for 30 minutes followed by -40 °C for 30 minutes. These types of tests are among the most rigorous used in the electronics, sensors, and automobile industries.
ACW has been a leader in P-NIL resins since they were known as 2P resins decades ago. A hallmark of ACW P-NIL resins is high adhesion to glass, surviving the harsh 1000-hour temperature/humidity and thermal shock stress tests with no delamination. There are two classes of resins, P-NIL Lens Resins and P-NIL Resins for Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE). Both groups include resins with RI at 589 nm ranging from 1.51 to 1.61.
