Gel-Pak® VR Carriers for Thin Optical Filters

Safely shipping and handling today’s thin optical filters can be a challenge. Small part sizes and narrow substrate thickness can lead to breakage and yield loss during transport and offloading. Gel-Pak’s Vacuum Release TraysTM provide the ideal solution to ensure that fragile optical filters remain damage-free during transport.

Filters packaged in a Vacuum Release TrayTM lay on a mesh material over a gel membrane. This provides optimal gel surface contact and immobilizes the filters during shipping and handling. The gel surface contact can be minimized for filter removal by applying vacuum to the underside of the tray. To learn more about Gel-Pak’s Vacuum Release Technology, visit this page.
