New manufacturing process: Innovative surface coating for B+W filter mount
B+W is replacing the black chrome plating of its filter mounts with an innovative paint finish, thus improving the gliding properties and simplifying the screwing in and out of the filter.
The new coating also prevents surface abrasion (sooting), which was unavoidable with the previous production method. In addition, the filter mount is given a more modern and homogeneous look, and the matt finish prevents unwanted reflections.
The production changeover is planned for all filter holders; implementation has already begun.
