Adhesive-Free Bond (AFB®)
Adhesive-Free Bonding (AFB®) is patented technology developed and owned by Onyx Optics, Inc. Since laser environments dictate robust components with minimal loss or damage, Adhesive-Free Bond (AFB®) has been developed to produce strong and optically transparent bonds. Both similar and dissimilar crystals and glasses may be bonded using this unique process. In most cases AFB® is as strong as bulk material.
