Just because something isn't well know does not mean it will not work ! Your obviously bias and you are just being dismissive without any real knowledge or experience with it....

Default Re: A New Way To Clean Laser Lens !

Ever clay bar a car, it picks up all the stuff on the surface but if done wrong or if the clay is reused, it will leave microscratches that with cars are covered up with the waxing process. Nice idea but I would not even risk a $3 acrylic lens to this stuff. As others have said, visibly and optically clean are two different things. I can clean the sapphire face of my seiko watch to the point it looks perfect under any lighting and shine a laser at it and see stuff in the reflection that the eye can't see on the surface.. Sure, the stuff may work wonders on watches but there is a reason melles griot and the like have a very strict method for cleaning laser optics that doesn't involve any clay like material. How they clean their optics is on here somewhere but I'm not going to go through and find it right now. We use high grade alcohols and ketones because they will dissolve and wash away oils that a clay will simply smudge and transfer.

Please stick to watches.

AND it's been used by watchmakers for a very long time with stellar results, It's called "Rodico" and it is used by watchmakers as a cleaning clay...



It can be easily made into any form needed to get into tight spots....




And if properly used it completely cleans the lens surface and leaves no residue behind !




Here a tip for using cleaning clay, You must "dab" the surface to be cleaned with a quick repeating motion making sure to dab straight to the surface and straight away, Any angles or sliding motion and it will leave extremely small "smugs" of clay behind which are again easily removed with the proper technique.

To find it on ebay just type in Bergeon Rodico 6033 cleaning clay and you will be able to buy a life time supply for less than $10 shipped to your house !
Granted that optic looks clean to the eye, but the real test would be shining a laser beam through it to see.

It looks very clean...almost like all the coatings have been stripped off......

I'll stick with super elastic bubble plastic. (Also sold as First Contact in an uncolored form )

Perhaps you have discovered a new use. I would however use disposible gloves each time you use this clay too eliminate transfer of oil and sweat from your fingers to the clay.

If you insist on the real thing then here you go: https://www.edmundoptics.com/lab-pro...solution/3510/

I've been using SEBP on my telescopes and laser optics for years though. Just don't use it on acrylic as the solvent in SEBP will ruin the plastic.

LMAO. No other steps? It can't be that simple can it?

On a more serious note though:
Probably a little bit overkill for most of us. Even specifies to use a clean-room but the info is still good.

ALT code 0153 is ™ btw.

Fortunately, this topic has been covered and discussed literally hundreds of times here, and in almost that many threads; I just searched "How to clean a lens" in our custom search bar, and got 1940 hits, granted some are multiple posts from the same thread but there is as much "detail" as you could ever want to read.
Everything from compressed air, cotton swabs, camera lens brushes, plain water, distilled water, acetone, vinigar, reg. alcohol, 99% pure alcohol, first contact, and even clay have been suggested and used.
I think it boils down to what members 'think' works best for them, and is in their budget. We all would like to be able to use that "first contact", but I'll bet most of us aren't going to run out and buy any.
I imagine most of us are in the alcohol/swab area for a fairly high quality lens cleaning job.

@CynicalBrad, Very informational link, thanks for sharing!
