    What are blank sizes on lenses and is the laminate floating back farther than on a 2 base or fixed to the front on the high curves? Most 1.67 need to be ground thick on high curves to avoid laminate.

    Hi Craig,

    Technical specifications for NuPolar 1.67 High Index lenses can be found here: http://youngeroptics.com/nupolar_ava...ech_NuPolar120

    The latest polarized lens manufacturing technology allows the polarized film to parallel the front side base curves. Labs can now grind NuPolar High Index lens materials to a minimum 1.5 thickness at either center or edge.

    I hope this information helps!

    I have found Younger blanks polarized film placement the most consistent of any manufacturer and NEVER dealt with a delamination problem with their blanks. Even the polar A, which I consistently tint gradient before edging does not delaminate. I made enough of a stink that my lab has made a separate listing for NuPolar in their drop down list to avoid me getting inferior quality suns.
