Indeed, IPA works out well for this purpose. I learnt it the hard way a couple of years ago, after cleaning my mobile phones’s camera lense too often with IPA. Facepalm

So i searched how to remove the AR coating and tried it with succes!

Weakened the AR coating by letting it soak into IPA for 30 minutes and then polishing it with silver polish.
Now it looks like new! So after having success i did remove the AR coating of all my Emisar and Noctigons Wink


I have removed AR coating with steel wool. No scratches.

Jeweler’s rouge also works great to remove AR coating. Just rub it over the surface like a pencil eraser.

I like AR lenses on my flashlights, except for the ones where I frosted the lenses. Any reason why you just didn’t buy a replacement lens?

And good to know on how to remove the coating.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I’m frugal Wink (however i did order a new Emisar Yesterday)

And i was curious to see whether the coating affects the tint hue.
