Meller Optics' Gugolz Pitch for Polishing Optics Is All-Natural

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - Meller Optics, Inc. provides a full line of optical polishing pitch that is made from all-natural wood resin, rather than petroleum byproducts. It is ready to use and offered in various grades and melting points to precisely match the optics being polished.

Gugolz™ Polishing Pitch from Meller is made from all-natural wood resin, instead of petroleum byproducts, and comes in five grades from very-soft to very-hard with melting points from 52°C to 87°C. Allowing users to exactly match pitch hardness to the optics being polished, this pitch is ideal for blocking, lapping, and polishing virtually any optical substrate material.

Eliminating the need for screening, filtering, or mixing additives, Gugolz™ Polishing Pitch is ready to use by simply slicing the amount required, melting, and pouring onto the lap. This all-natural pitch is totally consistent from batch-to-batch in terms of hardness and consistency.

Gugolz™ Polishing Pitch is priced from $21.00 to $27.00 per 1 kg. container, depending upon quantity. It is available at or by contacting Meller Optics, Inc.
