Dicro

Iíve seen a lot of Dicro being used these days, is there a new supplier? Where do people get comparable dicro sheets?

Sandburg is the glass of choice. Howard bought a phenomenal amount of glass stock back when Eric was going out of business at Uroboros so all that stock is still available. The pedestal machines they have are the best and they have their process well worked out. Other sources have been kind of anemic in the coating in my opinion. I no longer work with the stuff except in MB's jewelry and we have lots of it.

They're doing it on wissmach now, which is bottom barrel price wise. You get what you pay for.

God, I remember how long it took me to get the noodles just right. They kept kicking 'em back to us due to the surfaces not being smooth. Black was the hardest. Getting the 90s right was even harder.

The proverbial they. Apparently atf, cbs, and dichromagic. Never paid that much attention to manufacturer since it looked to be repackaged and I was buying for tests. Never got it to perform as well as the old pricey cbs.

Thanks, Tom. That makes sense. Should have looked there first.

Search the term sputtering on YouTube. It has a lot of applications other than dichroic glass but the process is very similar.
