Polarized Products to Support Research and Development

API optical filters meet application requirements in a wide range of research, academic, and scientific lab uses including electronics, medical devices and equipment, and machinery manufacturing. Our pre-cut polarizers and wave retarders are a more economical and efficient solution for research labs, testing procedures, and other limited scope projects. Pre-cut API sizes facilitate economy, ease of handling and result in less material going to waste. For custom applications, API can readily provide sizes and shapes of both polarizer and wave retarder filters using our proprietary waterjet and laser cutting equipment.

Choose from polarized and non-polarized acrylic, polycarbonate, and glass filter options.
