June 30, 2014 - Engineered for scratch, abrasion, and chemical resistance, OC-3021 Hard Coating is typically used in manufacture of electronic touch panels, LCD polarized displays, and polarized sunglasses, safety glasses, and goggles. Low surface energy prevents materials from easily adhering to cured coating, resulting in non-stick or self-cleaning surface. Offering optimized transparency and low haze characteristics, 100% solids coating cures tack-free when exposed to UV light.

Press release date: June 26, 2014

Dymax Corporation has released OC-3021, a UV-curable, optically clear, hard coating typically used in the manufacture of electronic touch-panels, polarized sunglasses, safety glasses and goggles, and LCD polarized displays.  The coating, engineered for superior scratch, abrasion, and chemical resistance, is ideal for use with film substrates such as PET and PMMA.  Its low surface energy prevents materials from easily adhering to the cured coating, resulting in a non-stick or self-cleaning surface.  OC-3021 is especially suitable for applications where there is a desire to keep the surface free from inks, adhesives, and coatings.  It offers excellent transparency and low haze characteristics, maintaining optical clarity over time for better performance and aesthetics.

This 100% solids hard coating is formulated to lower production, shipping, and life-cycle costs while reducing ecological impact.  It quickly cures tack free when exposed to UV light, enabling faster processing, fewer defects, and greater output.  It also ships with no solvents, resulting in reduced freight costs, but can still be mixed with a variety of solvents just before roll or dip coating to obtain a desired coating thickness of 2 to 5 microns.  OC-3021 is formulated to cure with Dymax's broad-spectrum UV light-curing equipment.

For additional information, visit www.dymax.com or contact Dymax Application Engineering at info@dymax.com or 860-482-1010.  Dymax Corporation develops innovative oligomer, adhesive, coating, dispensing, and light-curing systems for applications in a wide range of markets.  Major markets include aerospace, appliance, automotive, electronics, industrial, medical device, metal finishing, and UV-curable inks & coatings.
