SCHOTT Introduces New Coatings with Increased Scratch Resistance for Mobile Device Cover Glass

SCHOTT Introduces New Coatings with Increased Scratch Resistance for Mobile Device Cover Glass

Expensive cover glass may have reached its peak in scratch resistance and anti-reflectivity. That’s why mobile device manufacturers are looking to new coating solutions for the answer. SCHOTT’s new “Hard & Clear” coating solutions increase scratch resistance by more than 95 percent and reduce glare by 85 percent. Manufacturers can apply this new coating to any cover glass to give mobile devices a virtually scratch-free glass screen that users can see clearly even in direct sunlight. [More]

Graft-Copolymer Micelles-Based Transparent, Non-Wettable, Anti-Graffiti, Wear-Resistant Coatings

Graft-Copolymer Micelles-Based Transparent, Non-Wettable, Anti-Graffiti, Wear-Resistant Coatings

Requirements for anti-smudge coatings are tough: They should be invisible, thin, repel any possible contaminant while not affecting the desired properties of the substrate, and they should be highly durable. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Canadian scientists now present a new coating approach based on graft-copolymer micelles embedded in a polyurethane (PU) polymer. A coating based on these micelles has constant surface properties, even after extensive wear. [More]
