    This time not "knocking" anybody ...............

    For quite a while I have been marketing a so called Polycarbonate Edge Polish.

    This is a solvent mix that, when wiped over a dull or rough looking Polycarbonate lens edge, will give that lens edge a higly polished edge that is just about instantly dry.

    For quite a while we been working at mixing dyes into this solvent mix. It was not easy.

    Last week we finally succeeded and can now tint polycarbonate edges in pastel colors and at the same time give them edges a good polish job with instant drying features.

    The a lab customer in the UK said that he was applying a drop of the edge polish into a rimless polycarb screw hole. The result was that he polished the inside of the screw hole and at the same fused together any small crack or crazing that ocurred during the drilling process, This in turn apparently made the rimless mounting more resistant to cracking and crazing.

    The next idea could be to start a new trend, having colored polished screw holes in pastel colors in polycarbonate rimless lens mounts.

    Any positive or negative commoents will be appreciated.

    Sounds cool Chris. I like really minimal accents when it comes to lenses. Have a pic?

    Answer

    Jim,

    Lens renu is a humidity cure polymer that you can apply on a slightly scratched, grey or dull lens. Hold it over a steaming source for about a minute to accelerate curing. Then buff it with a Kleenex or other tissue. The result is a highly polished surface.
    NOTHING in this world will cure scratches but it helps covering up, and people that can't afford a new pair of lenses will get temporary relief.

    Light scratches will be filled and will be barely visible, grey lenses come back to nearly new.

    Along the way we have also discovered that through the total sealing qualities of the polymer, using this product on metal surfaces, will prvent oxidation. Metal frames will be protected from oxidation and resulting delamination which is due to acids in body perspiration.

    On plastic surfaces, like frames, nose pads, temple tips, the sealing properties result in that the plastic parts in frames will not turn white due to the acid in perspiration

    Chris.

    I'm at a large optical lab in the mid-west and would very much like to see a sample of your product used for the drill mounts. We do a large number of them on a daily basis.

    Please email me!
