After a twenty-hour thermal cycle lenses can be extracted: they will be graduated or afocal depending on the internal curvature of the moulds.
Why using CR 39 lenses?
- They offer good protection from UV radiation.
- They have a high impact resistance in comparison with other plastics CR 39 is much more non-scratch even without a non-scratch surface treatment.
- They are lightweight: thickness being equal, their weight is half the weight of glass lenses.
- They assure minimum chromatic aberration.
