F125M Coating

F125M UV Curable Coating

Scratch and Abrasion Resistant Coating for molded plastics

FEATURES

  • Low surface energy surface
  • Low Haze
  • Chemical and Solvent Resistant
  • Abrasion and Scratch Resistant Surface
  • Excellent adhesion to PMMA, polycarbonate and treated PET film

BENEFITS

  • Reduces damage to surface of molded plastic surfaces
  • Protects optical quality
  • Easily cleaned surface
  • Environmentally durable

PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

F125M UV Cure coating is designed to provide protection to the surface of softer optical plastic surfaces in abusive or harsh environments and to reduce the probability events which would permanently mar the surface of the optical part. This coating is suitable for PMMA and polycarbonate. F125M is coated by flow, spray, dip, spin coating as well via gravure coating techniques. Users should assure the product meets the specific needs of their application(s).
