SilFORT Hardcoats for Lighting

 Safety First!

Automotive headlights use polycarbonate plastic protected by a high performing coating. Plastics used without the proper hardcoat are susceptible to degradation due to weathering, scratches and marring, as well as chemical and solvent attacks.

Momentive’s SilFORT* hardcoats offer automotive manufacturers the ability to design headlamps with high-quality characteristic shapes, as well as to increase long-term exterior durability and performance of the polymer. Products from our hardcoat portfolio are approved by several regulatory authorities, including AMECA and ECE, and are specified for use by OEMs around the globe.
