SilFORT* Hardcoats for Glazing

Enabling Plastics, Enabling Innovation 

As part of their efforts to increase fuel efficiency and enhance vehicle design, automobile manufacturers have been replacing glass with plastics that are used for glazing. But without the correct hardcoat, plastics are vulnerable to deterioration caused by weather, scratching and blemishing, as well as chemical and solvent attacks.  

Momentive’s SilFORT hardcoats enable automotive manufacturers to use plastics, such as polycarbonate and PMMA, by providing protection that can significantly extend their long-term exterior durability and performance.
