Thermal Lens

Are you able to take the thermal (second part of the lens) off?

I have a jt proflex thermal lens and the smaller lens on the inside is falling off in some parts and is also very scratched. Can I take it off and just use the single pane?


Thanks!

Buy a new lens.

If the thermal part is worn out I have got to believe the front part isn't doing much better.

Thanks for the reply's but the problem is that I live overseas so ordering it takes around 2 weeks and I have a tournament next weekend so it wouldn't get here in time. Its usable no? Because it just becomes a single lens?

I don't know. I would imagine that it would compromise the integrity of the lens. I would call manufacturer. Best advice I can give you.

If you take the inner lens off, it will not compromise the lens integrity. You will just lose the ability to keep fog from forming. But if you decide to take the inner thermal layer off, you can use an anti-fog treatment to keep the fog off the lens temporarily. I have done that with some of my JT lens.
