CLAREX Anti-Reflection (AR) Filter
CLAREX Anti-Reflection (AR) Filter is a multi-layered AR coating which prevents light reflection increasing transmission.
- Outstanding Reflection Prevention.
- Superior Light Transmission (over 98%) and Optical Characteristics.
- Excellent surface hardness and durability.
- Additional coating to prevent surface smudging (Anti-Fingerprint).
- No birefringence or double refraction.
- Available from 0.3mm thickness
- Close tolerance and uniform thickness.
- Ultra smooth glass-like surface.
- Excellent weather resistance.
- Addition of Hard Coat increases surface hardness to 6-8H
- Non-Glare surface texture can also be applied
- Many standard substrate colours available or colour matching also available.
- Versatile substrate suitable for laser cutting, milling, printing etc.

The AR surface also has a hard coating of 6-7H pencil hardness, to prevent scratches. However, cleaning with dirty, gritty cloths will scratch the surface, so it is necessary to clean only with a clean soft cloth, see below.
Prevention of smudges
The AR coat filter has very low reflection (less than 0.5% at 550nm compared to ordinary acrylic 8% at 550nm) and very high transmission (98% for AR compared to 92% for ordinary acrylic). Therefore, it is very easy to smudge or mark with fingerprints. To prevent this, the top surface layer is treated with an ‘anti-smudge coating’, so it can be easily cleaned
Note: If both top and bottom surfaces are coated with AR (eg MHA2100) the bottom surface does not have an ‘anti-smudge coating’, so it must not be touched, as it will be impossible to clean.
Cotton gloves should be worn during handling and assembly.
The AR surface will react with chemicals. It should never come into contact with acid or alkaline reagents.
Seawater will also affect the AR coating, and fresh water should not be used to clean it due to the possibility of dissolved chemicals in the water.
Method of cleaning
We recommend a micro fibre clean soft cloth similar to that used to clean AR coated eyeglasses.
To remove oily finger marks we recommend a cleaning agent specifically used for optical lenses, and polished with a micro fibre cloth.
