ECO550 glass is
RoHS compliant and contains no lead or other restricted materials. LightPath
is introducing a full line of standard aspheric lenses that now utilize EC0550
and the ability to produce custom lens designs. ECO550 also meets the Japanese
Green guidelines established in 2003.
LightPath is recognized as a world leader in precision molded aspheric
optics. With the introduction of ECO550, LightPath can now offer the same
high-performance aspheric lens designs without the use of lead, enabling new
applications requiring environmentally friendly materials worldwide.
Ken Brizel, LightPath Chief Executive Officer, stated, "ECO550 gives
customers another choice when designing their applications. This new
environmentally friendly glass will enable our customers to meet the upcoming
global environmental legislation restricting hazardous substances."
Selected lens designs are available now and many more standard series
350XXX lenses using EC0550 will be available prior to September 2005, based on
customer requirements. Please contact LightPath sales or authorized
representatives and distributors for more information.
