SilFORT* Hardcoats for Automotive

Enabling Durability, Optimizing Performance 

Momentive’s SilFORT hardcoats enable automobile manufacturers to select engineered plastics or metallic parts for use in a number of demanding applications. Our hardcoat portfolio is approved by regulatory authorities, such as AMECA and ECE, and specified for use by OEM’s globally. 

For engineered plastics, such as polycarbonate (PC) or PMMA, SilFORT hardcoats improve the durability and performance of plastics by helping them maintain their color, gloss, light transmission and physical properties, while enhancing weatherability, cleanability and resistance to abrasion, chemicals and solvents.  

SilFORT technology enables the innovative use of plastics in a variety of automotive applications including:

  • Future mobility 

  • Forward lighting 

  • Exterior parts 

  • Glazing 

  • Interior parts and displays

For metallic parts, such as aluminum alloys or anodized aluminum, SilFORT hardcoats provide excellent corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance and chemical resistance for aluminum exterior parts including:

  • Window trim 

  • Roof rails 

  • Door pillars 

  • Belt lines 

  • Door sills  

Our comprehensive line of hardcoats can be applied by different application methods, including dip, flow, spray or digital inkjet printing. Momentive’s highly trained technical support team is available to help you select the right product for your needs and achieve optimal performance.
