AR coatings that give you the edge

AR coating quality can't be determined by simple visual inspection.

The truest measure of an AR coatings quality is how it holds up over time and under adverse conditions. But, unless you have a proven history with a particular AR coating and more importantly the lab that produces it, you are left to rely on marketing mumbo jumbo and sales speak to choose the best AR for your customers.

We think you deserve better. So...

Tortuous testing ensures quality and consistency of Integrity AR Coatings.

Weekly samples of all Integrity AR coatings endure :

1. Razor Scoring

AR coated lenses are crosshatch scored using a razor knife.

2. Tape Pull

Strong adhesive tape is applied to the scoring and ripped off.

3. Salt Boil

Scored lenses are boiled in salt water for at least two minutes.

4. Cold Shock

Lenses are removed from boiling water and placed directly into a cold water shock.

5. Microsopic Inspection

Finally, the AR coatings are inspected under a microscope for the slightest evidence of cracking, crazing or delamination.

6. R.I.T (Random Insane Testing)

What about taking samples directly from a 200 degree oven and tossed them into a sub-zero snow bank or leaving them on the roof in the middle of summer? These are the kinds of thing we do for kicks. If we put our name on it, we want to know it it will hold up for you and your customers.

Two Decades Of Experience

One of the very first independent optical laboratories in the US to build a German-certfied AR coating facility, Laramy-K has been processing AR coatings for almost two decades. To provide you with the absolute best, we moved away from corporate brands and used our years of experience, research, and customer feedback to produce a wide variety of performance-based coatings that are guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Here's what we offer...

TKO AR... Not Green?

Did you know the green reflective color used so often on anti-reflective coatings has no optical benefit? What's more, green is actually used by most big-names because it is more noticeable, and therefore in theory, "easier to sell." Of course, one of the chief benefits of AR is that it makes the lenses less noticeable. This is why we make TKO AR with a less-noticeable blue residual color.

ICE - Colorless AR

ICE AR coating comes with all the benefits of TKO ultra with no residual color, so lenses appear invisible.

A backside AR coating that specifically blocks the reflection of UV light for outdoor activities.

When engaging in activities like golf, fishing, hiking, and cycling, significant amounts UV can be reflected from the backside of the lens into the eye. Particularly when the head pointed down­ allowing more sunlight to hit back of the wearer's lenses.

A pair of sunglasses with conventional backside anti-reflective coating protects the eyes from visible light causing increased dilation, allowing even more reflected UVR into the eye.

Instead, UVARity reduces reflected UVA and HEV up to 95% when compared to non-UV AR coatings.

DES (Digital Eye Strain)

DES (Digital Eye Strain) coatings reduces eye strain caused by HEV light most commony emitted from electronics, blocks 95% of back­side reflected UV, and appears as a faint blue reflective color
