Baader Planetarium AstroSolar(TM) safety film is a specially manufactured streak-and-blister free foil. It attains the optical performance of plane parallel glass filters. The base material is not "Mylar"! The basic development of this film was made in laboratories for nuclear and particle physics applications.
High density coatings on both sides of the foil ensures a highly uniform filter, while neutralizing the occasional microscopic holes in the coating. The image of the sun is extremely contrasty and of almost neutral (white) color. The coating of the foil is subject to constant quality control. Its reflective property of over 99.999% has been tested by a German Republic bureau of Standards and Conformity with EU norm 89/686, and it is certified with the CE-symbol.
This Astrozap Baader Solar Sheet Material - Visual Use is made for the construction of high-quality objective-filters for visually observing the sun with telescopes, binoculars, or video-lenses, or other optics. Its high solar reflectivity reduces transmitted light to a safe level.
