Hydrophilic/Hydrophobic Optical Coatings meet needs of various applications.
Press Release Summary:
January 21, 2011 - Suited for outdoor use or environments where moisture is present, hydrophilic coatings reduce distortion by interacting positively with water and causing condensates to spread uniformly over surface of coated glass. They comply with MIL-C-675C for severe abrasion and can be applied on glass substrates for optics applications with wavelengths from 350-2,700 nm. Available as coated and laminated solutions, hydrophobic coatings create barrier against dirt, dust, and liquids.

Hydrophilic & Hydrophobic Optical Coatings Available from ZC&R Coatings for Optics
Press release date: January 19, 2011
ZC&R's hydrophilic coatings reduce distortion by interacting positively with water, causing condensates to spread uniformly over the surface of the coated glass; sheeting water rather than forming droplets that scatter light. Perfect for outdoor use or in environments where moisture is present, hydrophilic coatings can be combined with all ZC&R specialty coatings for a highly customized solution. Durable and cost-effective, this ion-assisted inorganic hard coating functions well in high humidity situations.
ZC&R hydrophilic coatings can be applied on glass substrates for optics applications with wavelengths between 350 nm and 2700 nm. In addition, the durable coatings comply with MIL-C-675C for severe abrasion.
ZC&R's hydrophobic coatings can be provided in both coated and laminated solutions for repelling moisture. Ideal for touch screens, the water repellant hydrophobic coating creates a barrier against dirt, dust and a host of liquids.
