First Contact Polymer

One look at First Contact Polymer and you’ll say, “Really?” Pour all this liquid on my $10,000 lens and let it sit for 10 minutes? Why?

I would imagine NASA and Lockheed probably asked James (Jim) Hamilton that same question 15 years ago, but it probably sounded like this, “Really? Pour all this liquid on our $10,000,000 telescope lens?” And his answer was, and still is, “Trust me!” They did, for 15 years now, and one demonstration will sell you too. (Hence the the name Fitst Contact, get it?)

It’s a bit of a stretch at first, but once you try it once you’ll see the liquid lift out fingerprints, smudges and other debris leaving a clean, crisp lens.

It’s a 4 step process: Pour the liquid Polymer, brush it on, let dry for 10 minutes, and peel off. Voila!

I have to say, after 24 years of filmmaking very little surprises me. This did.

Good stuff First Contact Polymer! The lens is ‘clearly clear’!
