Pentax announced that its entire line
of anti-reflective coated lenses has been awarded the
COLTS Performance Seal. It is the first company to
achieve this distinction.
The Seal is a certification of quality assurance issued
by COLTS Laboratories, an independent testing facility
specializing in ophthalmic products. The certification
is based upon the results of five testing procedures:
Bayer Abrasion, Cycle Humidity/Oven Cross-Hatch
Adhesion, Variable Height Impact/FDA Drop Ball, Ease of
Cleaning, and Cosmetic and Mechanical Inspection.
“I have been impressed with the effort put forth by the
people at Pentax to reach a quality level that would
allow COLTS to award them the Performance Seal on all of
the premium anti-reflective coated products. They are
the first lens manufacturer to do so,” remarked John
Young, president of COLTS Laboratories.
