Can I Use Different Chemicals To Clean My Molds And Lenses?

temp-post-image

It can be tempting to try to save a few pennies by using industrial chemicals or household cleaners to clean molds and lenses. Unfortunately there’s no way to know exactly what’s in a lot of these cleaners or to be sure that you’ll get the same thing twice even if you buy the same product. “Simple” things like denatured alcohol aren’t safe either; there are hundreds of different denaturing chemicals and processes. How these things will affect the casting process and equipment isn’t easy to predict.

Our cleaners use the minimum number of ingredients necessary to get the job done. There are no colorants or scents added. Since we control the formulations, we also ensure that only high-purity components go in them. It’s the only way we can be sure they will be effective while also being friendly to your molds and lenses. If you stick with our cleaners you don’t have to worry about contaminating your molds, affecting the casting process, or damaging your lens coatings.
