Antireflective Coating

Diamond Coatings supply a range of antireflective coatings that offer enhanced optical performance by reducing reflection and glare. The coatings can be supplied on glass, acrylic or polycarbonate substrates. We also manufacture and supply an antireflective PET film.

Our antireflective (AR) coating is conductive with a sheet resistance of typically 1000+ ohms/sq and comes with the following available options:

    Multi-purpose to suit customers’ needs
    Acrylic sheet with dipped AR coating giving approximate reflection of 3%
    Vacuum deposited AR at various wavelengths to suit customer requirements with average reflection of 0.5%
    ITO conductive coating combined with multilayer AR

Effective Antireflective Coatings

Reducing reflection to a fraction of that of conventional glass windows, antireflective coatings provide crystal-clear transparency even when there is a significant difference in the level of light on either side of a windowpane (in front or behind).

Light transmission for AR coated glass (coated on one side only) is 94%, with both sides coated, this increases to 96%. In a similar fashion, polycarbonate light transmissions are 91% and 95% respectively.

Antireflective Polycarbonate Coatings

Antireflective coatings on polycarbonates are utilised in many applications, including touchscreens and automobile displays, transparent ITO heaters, medical displays and instruments and EMI/RFI shielding filters.

An additional bonus to the antireflective properties on polycarbonates, our coatings also reduce fading and yellowing, caused by ultra-violet rays. With this in mind, AR coated polycarbonates are a great choice for display cases and retail displays.

Antireflective PET Film

Polyester film is composed of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and is a high performing, transparent thermoplastic. When coated with ITO, the PET films are both highly transparent and conductive. The further enhancement of an AR coating makes these films exceptional useful for a range of applications including LCD’s, PDP’s, clear displays and touch panels, amongst others.

PET film has many favorable properties including high tensile strength and dimensional stability, low moisture absorption and high UV resistance – and of course, high optical transparency.

Our Antireflective ITO PET film comes supplied with an optically clear adhesive and can be provided in sheet form, in continuous meter format on a roll or directly laminated on your chosen substrate.

Why Use ITO Float Glass?

Obviously, with Float Glass being the most commonly used of all glass types, there will always be a requirement for ITO Float Glass.

The Uses Of Conductive Glass

Conductive glass really is a thing… glass that has the ability to conduct electricity! This sounds pretty cool on the face of it, but what are the uses of conductive glass? Read on!

Indium Tin Oxide Coated Glass

Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is a fantastic substance that has two characteristics that make it ideal for a number of applications: Firstly, it is optically clear, and secondly it is electrically conductive.

Why use Interactive Touch Film?

You may not know what an interactive touch film is, we are going to break this down so you have a better idea of exactly why you would look to use interactive touch films.
