SilFORT* Hardcoats for Exterior Automotive Parts

Enabling Plastics, Enabling Innovation 


For many years, automotive manufacturers have been replacing glass and metal with light-weight plastics to increase fuel efficiency, as well as to enhance design capabilities. However, plastics that are not properly coated, are susceptible to deterioration due to weather, scratching and blemishing, as well as chemical and solvent attacks.
