JNS dichroic coatings offer a permanent color solution that will not degrade or fade over time. Dichroic coated filters transmit the desired wavelengths and reflect the unwanted wavelengths, resulting in a high transmission coating with little to no absorption. Dichroic filters are designed for applications that require precise color of the spectral band.  JNS offers dichroic coatings on Borofloat™ borosilicate glass, patterned glass diffusers, tempered glass, plastic substrates, plastic diffusion materials and molded lenses.  Our standard dichroic coatings on borosilicate glass have a normal operating temperature of 375C.



Below is a list of some of the common colors we produce and inventory for architectural lighting applications.  JNS can match any Rosco, Lee or Apollo gel number or use multiple gels together.  We also work with our customers to design custom propriety colors for a specific application.
