Optical Components

At Chemtech Plastics, molding clear plastics for optical and lighting applications is one of our core strengths. With the increased use of LED lights in automotive, electronics, and medical industries, we saw an opportunity to fulfill the growing demand for this type of product. Chemtech has developed a proprietary tooling process with an innovative runner and gating technique that allows for a very controlled injection and cooling cycle. This enables us to mold thick, clear components free from defects such as flow marks, sinks, and other undesirable flaws. We mold a diverse range of products from both polycarbonate and acrylic that exhibit an exceptional degree of optical clarity and light transmittance.

In many situations, a molded clear plastic lens is more desirable that glass. In addition to being less expensive, they are lighter in weight and less prone to breakage. Our engineers can help you choose the best materials to meet your specific performance requirements and ensure products don’t degrade or yellow over time.

For the automobile industry, we mold range of items for interior lighting applications, such as PRNDL luminaires and lighted pushbuttons. We also manufacture light guides and light bars that are used in headlight and taillight assemblies. We have produced thousands of optically clear plastic light pipes for the electronics industry in horizontal and vertical arrays for board mounted, and panel mounted applications.
