Sheet Polarisers

Knight Optical supply a range of custom UV/IR and Visible type sheet polarisers. These custom sheet polarisers can be supplied as CAB laminated, acrylic laminated or antireflective glass laminated polarisers to custom specifications to meet your specific requirement.

Custom UV and IR sheet polarisers: Both Custom HR polarisers and Custom HNP’B polarisers are from the former Polaroid/ 3M range. Original HNP’B polariser is now obsolete however we supply a similar replacement that works extremely efficiently into the UV wavelength at 290nm. Our custom UV and IR sheet polarisers extend the spectral range down to 290m for the HNP’B replacement material and HR is used between 800nm to 2000nm. We have extensive stock of HR material in 76.2mm square sheets available for your specific custom shape and size. The range from 800-860 the HN7 type offers superior performance at a reduced price. Working below 800nm HN22 is an ideal choice again available to your custom specification.

Custom visible sheet polarisers: These custom sheet polarisers were previously made by polaroid/3M and marketed under the brand name ‘Vikuti’ are now obsolete, however Knight Optical still hold substantial stocks that are available for manufacturing your custom sheet polariser. Some of the material grades are also being replaced by alternatives. Original polaroid/3M ‘Vikuti’ sheet polarisers are offered in a wide range of types HN32, HN38 and HN42, and special high performance types HN22, HN38S and HN42HE.

We also stock large sheets of the 3M original polarisers that we can offer custom sizes at short notice. Some of the polarisers that are gradually being replaced with a equivalent polariser material are also available in large sheets.  See our stock list of stock sheet polarisers.

Alternative acrylic laminated and AR coated glass laminated polarisers can be offered at short notice, please enquire.

Every component is individually tested by our highly skilled technicians in our state of the art metrology lab to ensure all components meet our high quality standards.
