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

NEI’s Easy-to-Clean coatings implement both scratch resistance and easy-to-clean 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 as well as metals and are ideally suited for optical lenses, touch screen protectors, stainless steel appliances, hand rails, faucets, and 3D printed parts.

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. It can be applied to plastics, as well as metals. SR-100EC is thermally cured and ideally suited for optical lenses, touch screen protectors, stainless steel appliances, hand rails, and faucets.

Coating Solution:3-part liquid coating
Curing Temperature:85°C (minimum)
Contact Angle:105 – 115° (water)

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. It 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.

Coating Solution:1-part liquid coating
Curing Temperature:20° – 150 °C
Contact Angle:100 – 105° (water)

Both liquid coating solutions can be applied by dipping, spraying, roll or flow coating and are available in liter and gallon sizes, up to 55 gallon quantities.
