Oleophobic/Hydrophobic Coating enhances display glass durability.
Press Release Summary:
May 29, 2014 - To enhance performance and longevity of anti-reflective (AR) coated cover glass for displays, CleanVue PRO™ protective coating repels dirt, dust, water, grease, and oil. Properties also provide protection against scratching and allow repeated removal of fingerprints while maintaining display's anti-reflective properties. Compliant with MIL-C-675C, coating's oleophobic and hydrophobic water repelling characteristics did not breakdown or degrade after abrasion testing.

Abrisa Technologies Introduces CleanVue PRO(TM) a Severe Abrasion Resistant Oleo/Hydrophobic Coating for Display Glass
Press release date: May 27, 2014
This protective coating is well-suited for high performance anti-reflective (AR) coated cover glass for displays used in high contrast, heavy use and/or harsh environments. The resulting coated surface is easy-to-clean and maintain, does not stain, allows repeated removal of fingerprints, all while maintaining its anti-reflective properties. CleanVue PRO™ is ideal for protective vehicular instrument control panels and devices, field use touch and display panels, projected capacitive (PCAP) and capacitive touch screens, portable handheld devices, teleprompters, virtual reality applications, in-flight and vehicular entertainment screens and a host of other display devices.
CleanVue PRO™ is rugged and durable, and has a low coefficient of friction, providing protection against scratching. Abrisa Technologies’ extensive tests concluded that the product’s oleophobic and hydrophobic water-repelling characteristics did not breakdown or degrade after steel wool, cheese cloth, and eraser abrasion testing, in compliance with MIL-C-675C. The coating can be applied on glass substrates for optics applications with wavelengths between 250nm and 2,700nm.
