Hardcoats SilFORT* Hardcoats for Optical Parts

SilFORT* Hardcoats for Optical Parts

A high-performance coating is important to enhance vision when everything is being seen through a lens. Optical parts need to be abrasion, oil, dirt and corrosion resistant. They must not discolor or become hazy over time when exposed to sunlight and they need to be easy to clean. Momentive’s SilFORT* hardcoats can provide this superior performance.

SilFORT hardcoats can extend the long-term durability, protection, aesthetics and performance of lightweight plastics, such as polycarbonate and PMMA, for use in optical parts.

By increasing weatherability and cleanability, as well as offering resistance to chemicals and solvents, SILFORT hardcoats can help plastics maintain their color, gloss, light transmission and other physical properties.
