Optical Coating Technologies apply protective coatings, hydrophobic and anti-reflective coatings to lenses, visors and panels.
Optical Coating Technologies Limited offer a range of protective coatings that enhance the appearance, durability and hence saleability of thermoplastic products, whether they be formed sheet, mouldings or extrusions. The range centres on hard, hydrophobic coating, anti-reflective and anti-fog abrasion resistant coatings.
The applications for high performance engineering plastics no longer need be restricted by:
Deterioration of appearance
Deterioration of light transmission
In the case of uncoated polycarbonate, the process of degradation is swift, even when extreme care is taken in cleaning.
Our hard, anti-fog and anti-reflective Silicone coatings are resistant to many common solvents and plasticisers, which enhance the range of applications where chemical attack leads to a stress problem.
The protective coating, which is only a few microns thick, is permanently bonded to the substrate at over 100 degrees C after multi-stage surface preparation.
Other benefits include an increase in surface smoothness over that achieved from polished tooling mouldings, that increases light transmission (by 10%) and providing a hydrophobic coating that resists the buildup of dirt in harsh environments.
With proven, economic and damage free transport techniques available, moving mouldings to us is a hassle free issue. In this age of
global logistics cost is not a barrier when fast market response and minimum stock levels determine success.
Our business concept is to help our customers benefit from coating technology. With our many contacts in optical design, lens tooling, injection moulding and coating techniques we are ready to provide assistance in whatever form is most help for your
We would be pleased to coat samples of your products for evaluation and assist your product design, by applying our expertise of over 10 years. Please contact us if we can be of assistance with your coating requirements.
