Please check dimensional restrictions for individual materials in materials table to the right.
Additional Notes:
The above specifications are the upper limits of achievable performance and can vary slightly. The angular deviation tolerance for linear and circular polarizers, and retarders is up to ±2° of the polarization/retardation direction.
The polarization direction is parallel to the first listed dimension. For example, a part sized 50 x 60 mm has a polarization direction is parallel to the 50mm edge.
All polarizers and retarders are delivered with protective films on both sides which must be removed before using in your application.
The fast axis direction of the retarder films is parallel to the first mentioned dimension of the part or, alternatively, will be labelled on the protective film.
We reserve the right to change the technical specifications at any time.
