Coatings Offer Scratch Resistance for Clear DisplaysIn response to the proliferation of touch screen displays and the requirement to prevent or eliminate scratches while retaining visual display clarity on high wear surfaces, MTC Diamonex has developed a coating technology that can be applied to both glass and plastic. This eliminates the need to buy expensive protective screen guards.

Diamondshield is a high wear, scratch-resistant coating for plastics and polymers used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from visual displays to aerospace applications. When applied to plastics using a low temperature, chemical vapor deposition process, this water-clear coating increases surface hardness to that of glass, providing enhanced durability and increased abrasion/scratch-resistance and wear-resistance.

Diamondshield coating increases the durability and robustness of portable electronic devices by strengthening the surface hardness of the plastic used on these devices. Because the coating is scratch-resistant, screens on electronic devices maintain clarity over time, making them easier to read and eliminating the need for secondary screen protectors. The Diamondshield coating gives plastic a previously unattainable scratch-resistance while maintaining plastic’s low cost, low weight, impact resistance and formability. The coating has exceptional transparency, with a low index of refraction and virtually no absorption in the visible wavelengths. The increased surface hardness and durability extends product lifespan, as there is less wear on parts.
