The 0% column shows the wavelength below which the filter has zero transmittance (i.e., lets no light through), while 50% the wavelength at which the filter blocks half of the incoming light (50% transmittance).Wratten Schott B+W Hoya Tiffen 0% 50% Remarks#25 OG590 090 25A 25 580 nm 600 nm Really a red filter#29 RG630 091 - 29 600 nm 620 nm Dark red#70 RG665 - - - 640 nm 680 nm Very dark red#89B RG695 092 R72 - 680 nm 720 nm Almost black , but not quite#88A RG715 - - - 720 nm 750 nm I've never seen this one#87 RG780 - - 87 740 nm 795 nm Cuts off all visible light#87C RG830 093 - - 790 nm 850 nm Usually called black #87B RG850 - RM90 - 820 nm 930 nm Expensive! #87A RG1000 094 RM100 - 880 nm 1050nm Blocks even some of infraredHope this helps.
