KRS-5

KRS-5 is used for attenuated total reflection prisms, IR windows and lenses where transmission in the 0.6 Ám - 40 Ám range is desired. It has a tendency to cold-flow and change its shape with time. KRS-5 is only slightly soluble in water but can be dissolved in alcohol, nitric acid, and aqua regia. This material is considered toxic and should be handled with care.
Maximum available size: 120 mm Dia x 30 mm Thk.
