Optex Announces LensMate and ScreenMate Cleaning System


TORONTO, ON., August 30, 2012 – Gentec International is pleased to introduce a new series of Optex cleaning products that includes the LensMate lens cleaning system for camera and binocular lenses and the ScreenMate screen cleaning system for LCD displays.

The LensMate and ScreenMate cleaning systems feature a soft cleaning pad with an environmentally-friendly, dry cleaning compound that won’t spill or dry out. The unique self-replenishing system works with a twist of the cap after each use to prepare the tip for the next cleaning. Both cleaning systems are safe, effective, and easy to use, and they won’t scratch or damage delicate surfaces. The unique cleaning compound even helps reduce static charge build-up that can attract dust to the surface of the lens or LCD display.

A retractable brush twists up to remove dust and other particles before using the cleaning pad to remove smudges and fingerprints. The rubberized coating ensures a comfortable, secure grip, even while wearing gloves. And the compact design means you never have to go without an effective cleaning system.

The LensMate lens cleaning system is available in two sizes, one featuring a large cleaning pad for DSLR camera and binocular lenses (LMDSLR) and the other with a small cleaning pad for compact camera lenses (LMPS). The suggested retail prices are $14.95 and 11.95, respectively. The ScreenMate screen cleaning system (SMLCD) incorporates a specially shaped, triangular cleaning pad that fits into corners to clean the entire LCD display; it has a suggested retail price of $14.95. All three products come in a master pack of ten, pre-packed in a custom merchandiser for easy retail display, and will be available September 1st.
