Carestream Tollcoating Introduces New Hardcoat Services for the Electronics & Graphics Industries

Carestream Tollcoating, a premier provider of roll-to-roll precision toll coating services, announced contract-manufacturing services to hardcoat polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and other substrates used in electronics and graphics applications.

Carestream Tollcoating’s innovative PET film features a proprietary hardcoat formulation usable on a variety of substrates, which delivers the reduced iridescence required for optical products.

Product attributes of Carestream Tollcoating’s hardcoated PET film include:

* Abrasion resistance
* Scratch resistance featuring typical 3H pencil hardness
* Optical clarity with less than 0.3 percent haze typical and neutral color
* Chemical resistance
* Wide range of constructions and alternate substrates, including polycarbonate (PC), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) and cyclo olefin polymer (COP)
* Manufactured in a cleanroom environment

Potential applications for Carestream Tollcoating’s hardcoated projects include:

* Protective films used for touch screens and flat panels
* Abrasion resistance for membrane switch, graphics, and white boards
* Additional value-added layers and performance, including UV protection, anti-microbial and photovoltaic uses

“Carestream Tollcoating has significant experience working with performance-critical applications that require the use of a hardcoated PET film layer,” said Rick Daniels, general manager of Carestream Tollcoating. “We applied the knowledge gained from these industries to develop a service for hardcoated PET films and other substrates that can dramatically improve the performance and economics of coatings produced for customers in the electronics and graphics markets.”
