The bald guy on the right will introduce a short video showing the actual Laser Gold® plating of a NASA, one-meter Beryllium mirror. It's really worth a click. (Our testimonial from NASA Goddard, while not referring to this project, was our proudest accolade ever.)

Epner Technology is a high-tech specification plating company, family owned and managed since 1910. We think we've designed a site to really help the engineer do his job. "Optical" visitors should find the Application Examples and Tech Data sections most helpful.

If optics is not your thing, check out Specification Plating or Plating Plastics. Auto racing buffs should find the section on Thermal Foil of interest.

And lastly, don't miss our twelve word Mission Statement. Be forewarned; a sense of humor is required.

Laser Gold
The world’s Gold Standard for infrared reflectivity and emissivity….and it’s tough

Laser Black
A velvet-like black optical coating that some say, “Swallows light.” Tech Data
Laser Gold® Tech Data
Laser Black® Tech Data

Reflectivity, emissivity and BRDF data from various sources
Turnkey Fabrication & Plating
One stop shopping. We tackle only those projects that are within our capability. No embarrassments
Light Pipes
Laser Gold applied to a highly polished bore yields a custom IR waveguide of extraordinary efficiency.

Plastics, Composites & Difficult Substrates
Plating engineering plastics e.g. Ultem, Duroid etc. and Moly, Titanium etc. are no problem at Epner

Radiation or Cold Shields
Electroformed low thermal mass shields with or without grown-in baffles
Fabricating a part from the coating itself offers
dramatic possibilities for the creative engineer
High-Tech Specification Plating
Engineering plating from a company that actually does what the drawing calls out
Thermal Foil
Laser Gold coated foil either .001” copper or even lighter, Kapton film. Cleanable
