Coatings Offer Scratch Resistance for Clear Displays
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.
