    Satin Edge Polish

    We'd like to be able to produce a satin or matte finish edge on poly and hi index lenses, but we've struggled to find a process or piece of equipment that will help us do this quickly. Can anyone share their experience with satin edges? Polishers, polish wheel types, and compound brands, models, and links are extremely helpful.

    We currently use a pair of 7ex edgers, with an auto-polisher (http://www.1-800-optisource.com/Auto...le-Levels.aspx).

    Thank you!

    Our edger gives us the option between satin finish and glossy finish no matter the material. That's odd that yours doesn't.

    The simplest way is to just use OMS Polycarbonate edge polish.

    Cut your lens the normal way and just wipe the product over the lens edges and it is totally glossy in seconds.
