Advanced Protective Coatings:

Easy-to-Clean

Taking Care of the Dirty Work So You Don’t Have To

NEI’s Easy-to-Clean coatings implement both scratch resistance and non-stick properties to surfaces. Soil and liquids simply slide off the surface of coated components, thereby helping prevent deposits and extending the time between cleanings. The transparent coatings can be applied to plastics and metals, as well as glass and ceramics (500EC only) and are ideally suited for optical lenses, touch screen protectors, stainless steel appliances, hand rails, faucets, and 3D printed parts.

Features

  • Transparent Coatings
  • Excellent adhesion with plastic, metallic, and ceramic substrates
  • Long shelf life
  • Applied by dipping, spraying, roll or flow coating

Benefits

  • Creates a lubricating, easy-to-clean surface
  • Provides abrasion / scratch resistance
  • Imparts excellent and durable stain-resisting properties
  • Repels water, oils, ketones, and hydrocarbons
  • Superior chemical resistance

NEI’s Easy-to-Clean coatings come in two formulations: NANOMYTE® SR-100EC and NANOMYTE® SR-500EC

NANOMYTE® SR-100EC

NANOMYTE® SR-100EC is a transparent, micron-thick, liquid coating that provides both scratch resistance and easy-to-clean properties to surfaces. The surface treatment is mechanically robust, highly repellent to water and oils, and enhances lubricity for a non-stick surface. The three-part liquid coating is ideally suited for optical lenses, touch screen protectors, stainless steel appliances, hand rails, and faucets.

SR-100EC can be applied by dipping, spraying, roll or flow coating and is thermally cured. For applications where a primer is necessary (such as polymer substrates), NEI supplies a primer product – NANOMYTE® SR-Primer – which works well with a range of plastics.

NANOMYTE® SR-500EC

NANOMYTE® SR-500EC is a transparent coating designed to make surfaces easy-to-clean. The hard, dense, and smooth coating is a nanostructured composite consisting of organic and inorganic phases. The single component coating resists scratching and chipping, strongly adheres to polymer, metal, glass and ceramic surfaces, and is highly repellent to water and soil.

SR-500EC is easily applied by dip, spray or brush techniques and can be cured at room temperature. For applications where a primer is necessary (such as polymer substrates), NEI supplies a primer product – NANOMYTE® SR-Primer – which works well with a range of plastics.

Available for Purchase

NANOMYTE® SR-100EC & SR-500EC are available in liter and gallon quantities. Additionally, NEI offers in-house coating services for customer’s parts, as well as coating development services, wherein coating formulations are customized to address specific customer requirements.
