Optically Clear Hard Coating increases lens durability, film life.

July 1, 2014

Engineered for resistance to scratches, abrasion, and chemicals, OC-4122 UV-curable, optically clear, hard coating for polycarbonate lenses is suited for use with such film substrates as PC, PET, TAC, and PMMA. Surface energy prevents materials from readily adhering to cured coating, resulting in non-stick or self-cleaning surface, while transparency and low haze characteristics maintain optical clarity over time. This 100% solids hard coating cures tack free when exposed to UV light. Read More
