Linear Polarizer Film

API’s linear polarizing films are an excellent solution for applications that require glare reduction due to reflected light, including camera filters, sunglasses, and machine vision systems.

  • Sheet polarizer and custom cut parts
  • Optical adhesive (OCA) or non-adhesive backed linear polarizers
  • Visible light polarizer and IR and UV applications
  • Acrylic or glass laminating capabilities
  • Numerous transmissions available
  • Wide range of thicknesses in our film polarizers, polarized acrylic and polarizing glass
  • Laser and waterjet cutting services for custom requirements
  • Film polarizer replacements for Polaroid and 3M HN32, HN38, HN42, HN42HE

We also manufacture a multi-axis linear polarizer filter for animation (Polarmotion) and sunglass demonstration displays. Our ability to print a polarization filter by selectively placing more than one axis on a sheet gives you a broader range of options. By combining the multi-axis polarizer with a spinning linear polarizer, motion is simulated. In addition, we can create cards that do not show any picture until polarized sunglasses are worn.
