Abrasion Resistant Coating

Transparent plastics, such as polycarbonate, acrylic, and molded parts with a high gloss finish, can scratch and scuff easily, and lose transparency quickly, during routine use and maintenance. NANOMYTE® SR-100 fulfills the need for abrasion or scratch resistant coatings on plastic substrates. It forms a ceramic-like hard surface that is needed in a variety of industrial and consumer applications, such as ophthalmic & sportswear lenses, automobile, airplane windows, and 3D printed parts.

NEI’s SR-100 Hardcoat offers substantial improvements in resistance to ASTM D1044 abrasion, with delta haze values typically under 1%.  In addition to excellent scratch-resistance, SR-100 has very good chemical resistance, remaining unaffected by brief exposure to common household and industrial chemicals which can sometimes seriously degrade bare plastic surfaces. Sensitive polymers, such as polycarbonate, are well protected from solvent attack.


NANOMYTE® SR-100 is a 2-part, water-based coating and can be applied using standard coating processes, including dip-coating, spray coating, and spin-coating. NEI also supplies a primer product – NANOMYTE® SR-Primer – which works well with a range of plastics.

Available for Purchase

NANOMYTE® SR-100 is 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.
