Production companies and photographic markets use these plastic filters to
add color to stage scenery and to provide color correction for theatre, film,
and television. Gel creates mood by changing the color shade of light.
Gel is used for short-term use.
There are two widely accepted gel manufacturing processes: double-coated and deep dyed. Apollo
Gel is coated on both sides of the polyester base material because many designers appreciate and
demand the color consistency found in this process. Built-in controls ensure the color consistency
throughout not only a single batch, but also from batch to batch. Controlling the dye density
during the deep dyed process makes these assurances more challenging. Whenever good consistency
and transparent colors are required, surface coated is the choice.
A total of 151 colors are available, which includes 12 diffusion colors and 20 color corrections.
