Home » INFRARED DYE SELECTOR

The dyes listed below, are arranged in order of increasing wavelength of maximum absorption. Go down the list to find a dye, which has maximum absorption at a wavelength near your wavelength of interest. The Absorptivity reports the relative amount of energy, per unit weight, absorbed at the λMax by a particular dye. These dyes can be used in many applications including cast acrylics, polycarbonate molding and many inks and coatings. The comments section identifies those dyes which are recommended for either cast acrylic or molded polycarbonate.
