Knight Optical’s Optolite Plastic Diffusers for Photography

31 Jan 2022

Ideal for use within photographic applications, Knight Optical's high-quality Optolite Plastic Diffusers offer a far superior, more uniform diffusion than Ground Glass alternatives. Used to diffuse a camera's flash and advance photos exposed to harsh light and shadows, Optolite Plastic Diffusers soften and enhance the appeal of images. As well as improving photographic applications, Optolite Plastic Diffusers are also used in lighting systems; for example, to prevent glare from computer screens, lightboxes, viewing X-rays – as well as a myriad of other applications.

Offering excellent chemical resistance and durability for optimum performance and long operating lifetimes (whether placed indoors or out), Optolite HSR plastic diffusers have up to 20 times the abrasion and scratch-resistance of equivalent acrylics. What's more, highly impact-resistant, they can also operate continuously in temperatures in excess of 100°C.

Alongside our readily available online stock portfolio – with next-day dispatch – we also offer Optolite Plastic Diffusers as custom-made components. By opting for our customised optical components, not only can you choose project-specific shapes and sizes best suited to your application; but you can also specify the tolerance and optical coatings to enhance the operability of your photographic application.

Typical specs:

Material: Optolite HSR

Shape: Square diffusers

Dimensional tolerances: +/- 1mm

Grades: Ranging from 40% to 87% transmission, in thicknesses from 1-3mm.
