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 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 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 coating is thermally cured and can be applied to plastics as well as metals. SR-100EC is 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 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.

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

TDS & Application Notes ♦ Safety Data Sheets »

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