Hardcoats

SilFORT* hardcoats offer automotive manufacturers the ability to replace glass and metal with lightweight plastics in a number of demanding applications. SilFORT hardcoats are able to extend the long-term exterior durability and performance of polymers, such as polycarbonate and PMMA, by helping them maintain their color, gloss, light transmission and physical properties, while enhancing their weatherability, cleanability and resistance to abrasion, chemicals and solvents.

SilFORT hardcoat technology is enabling the innovative use of plastic materials in a variety of industries around the world. In the transportation sector, hardcoat protected plastics can be found in automotive lighting, glazing, exterior trim, interior parts, and new front module applications, providing weight savings and design flexibility to pave the way for multiple applications in the automobiles of the future, such as electric vehicles or vehicles with autonomous driving capabilities that integrate Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The SilFORT portfolio of products is the culmination of more than two decades of advanced, patent-protected hardcoat technology developed by Momentive. In addition, Momentive’s highly trained application support team is available to help customers select the optimum products for their needs and to develop the application process for achieving optimal performance. 

Momentive’s SilFORT AS4700 hardcoat combines best-in-class abrasion resistance with extended weathering performance when applied to polycarbonate substrates. In vehicles with autonomous driving capabilities, SilFORT AS4700 hardcoat can provide a high gloss, glass-like surface that enhances signal transmission through the polycarbonate exterior part, specifically for RADAR, LiDAR and exterior IR cameras.

Momentive’s SilFORT UVHC5000 hardcoat is a clear, solvent-based, UV radiation-cured hardcoat  used to protect clear polycarbonate parts against abrasion, chemicals and outdoor weathering. This hardcoat is used in a number of automotive applications, including headlamps, exterior trim, front modules and interior parts.
