Optical Coating Technologies
We are the premier applicator of optically clear coatings onto thermoplastics such as Polycarbonate, Acrylic (PMMA), PPSU and Polyurethane. With a large range of optical coatings and various application techniques, we are at the forefront of applying coatings to flat, profiled, 2D and 3D industrial plastic components. The use of transparent plastics to manufacture high quality components in the areas of optics technology, automotive, instrumentation, lighting and the railway industry has been steadily growing over recent years. The clear benefits of plastics are their light weight, their flexibility and impact resistance. Complex structures can easily be produced cost effectively in large numbers. A disadvantage, however, of most plastic material is the low hardness. Even minor exposure to scratching (this can even be rubbing with a paper towel) has a negative impact on the surface.
