Phantom® Multi Purpose Formula









Phantom® Multi Purpose Formula
• "Invisible" vat lid increases dye temperature 
• Yields faster tinting times 
• Absorbs odor 
• Saves energy 
• Compatible with most lens dyes 
• Odorless formula

Multi Purpose Formula (MPF) is an optical lens dye additive that increases dye temperature, speeds the dyeing process, reduces evaporation, and absorbs odor. The percentage of increase in the temperature, vapor reduction, and odor absorption depends on the quality of the lens dye and the amount of MPF added. MPF also produces better quality tint and saves energy. It works effectively with most conventional optical lens dyes.

Phantom® Neutralizer




• Neutralizer 39X 
Color neutralizing formula, faster than conventional neutralizers, designed speficially for CR-39 lenses. Neutralizer 39X is used in full strength (not diluted with water), has a very low rate of evaporation, self-cleaning, and will not yellow lenses. Available in a Quart (32 fl.oz/946ml) and a Gallon (3.784 liters). 

• Neutralizer Poly-CColor neutralizing formula designed specifically for poly-carbonate, CR-39 and acrylic lenses. Neutralizer Poly-C is used in full strength (not diluted with water), has a very low rate of evaporation, virtually odorless, and will not yellow lenses. Available in a Quart (32 fl.oz/946ml) and a Gallon (3.784 liters).

• Neutralizer WB A water-based neutralizer designed to remove color from CR-39 plastic lenses with no offensive odor. Maximum temperature of 241 degrees F will not cause nearby dyes to boil over. Available in a Quart (32 fl.oz/946ml) and a Gallon (3.784 liters).

OptiSafe® Heat Transfer Fluid




OptiSafe® Heat Transfer Fluid
OptiSafe® Heat Transfer Fluid (HTF) is the recommended medium when heating optical solutions, such as lens dyes, UV formulas, and neutralizers. HTF provides uniform heat throughout your dye heating system, ensuring a more stable and uniform temperature in each of your vats. Even temperatures are critical when tinting and UV treating lenses. Loower temperatures can cause unstable dye shades and colors, as well as prolonged solution absorption times. 

OptiSafe® Heat Transfer Fluid vs. Water
• Maintains a productive, higher vat temperature for faster tinting, compared with water 
• Even temperature helps maintain more consistent dye colors, better shades, and faster absorption time 
• Does not evaporate. Water evaporates, using more energy and increase utility cost
• Protects and coats heating elements. Minerals found in water deteriorate heating elements over time 
• Higher HTF temperatures do not cause steam between the vats. Water evaporates, causing hot steam that may scald operators
• 100% biodegradable and environmentally safe oil blend. Non-hazardous and non-toxic
