Contact Lens

Cornelius Specialties has operated in this sector for more than 30 years and became the only manufacturer of methacrylate monomers to specifically target the contact lens market when it built its first manufacturing plant in 1999.

From 1999 the range and capacity has continually expanded, culminating in 2007 with the acquisition of a purpose built site in Haverhill, UK. This is now our centre of excellence for contact lens raw materials.

Specialising in gas permeable additives, Cornelius Specialties is the largest independent producer of specialist contact lens materials in the world.


Cornelius Specialties offers a range of monomers and accelerators for dental applications for dental liquids used in typical tooth monomer-polymer "doughing" applications.

New options include non-toxic inhibitors.

Structural Adhesives

Cornelius Specialties offers several monomers, accelerators and catalysts for structural adhesives based on cyanoacrylate and third generation acrylic or anaerobic.
