Can You Get Abrasion Resistant Coatings For Plastic?

Can you get abrasion resistant coatings for plastic? The need is obvious and the good news is there is a hard coat option available for acrylics!

Can You Get Abrasion Resistant Coatings For Plastic?

When it comes to plastic, durability and optical clarity can sometimes feel like a trade-off. Polycarbonates may be tougher, but they often fall short in terms of optical quality when compared to acrylics. But what if there was a way to enhance the resilience of acrylics without compromising their visual appeal? Well, there is.

Enter the world of Acrylic Hard Coating, a game-changer when it comes to protective coatings. At Diamond Coatings, we specialize in a range of coatings, including options like ITO (Indium Tin Oide) coatings, anti-reflective coatings, and, of course, hard coatings. With the ability to coat both glass and plastics, including polycarbonates and acrylics, we’re setting a new standard in protective solutions.

One such product is our DIA.HC-KRF Hard-Coat, specifically designed for acrylic substrates. This coating offers exceptional scratch resistance and hardness, coupled with enhanced weather and chemical resistance. In essence, it provides a robust shield, safeguarding the acrylic from scratches, everyday wear, and environmental challenges, all while preserving its cosmetic quality and appearance.

The DIA.HC-KRF Hard-Coat is a specialized coating tailored for polymethylmethacrylate (acrylic), providing unparalleled scratch resistance and hardness. Its added benefit lies in improved climatic and chemical resistance, ensuring the longevity of the substrate. This resistive coating is your guarantee against scratching, wear, and the subtle toll of time on the cosmetic quality of the plastic.

But why would you need an acrylic hard coating, you ask? While acrylic is reasonably robust in its own right, it has its limits. In high-traffic environments, especially those frequented by individuals who might not always be the most delicate, an extra layer of protection becomes invaluable. This is where our acrylic hard coating steps in, adding an extra layer of resilience without compromising clarity.

We also offer the option to further enhance the acrylic hard coating with anti-reflective coatings. The result? A robust solution that combines toughness with exceptional clarity, making it perfect for any display acrylic.

So, where might you need an acrylic hard coating? The answer is anywhere that acrylic is deployed in public spaces. While point-of-sale displays in retail environments are an obvious application, the versatility of our coatings extends far beyond. In any testing environment where acrylic is in use, opting for a hard coat is a prudent choice.

If you would like more information about any of our specialized coatings, please get in touch – we would be very happy to assist.
