Abrasion and Scratch Resistance
Plastics, such as polycarbonate and acrylic, are strong yet they have very soft surfaces which scratch easily. The proprietary MetaShieldTOUGH coating offers transparent and durable protection for many widely used plastic products that are susceptible to these unsightly abrasions and scratches.
While plastics offer several excellent properties such as light weight, formability, transparency and low cost, plastic surfaces are not as hard or abrasion resistant as glass. As such, glass remains the material of choice in areas such as transportation, mobile displays, and architecture.
MetaShieldTOUGH would be useful on a variety of polymer based substrates, extending their lifespan and usability. It could also pave the way for redesign in many areas where glass, steel or other such materials are currently being used.
