NANOMYTE® Easy-to-Clean Coatings

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.


  • Transparent Coatings
  • Excellent adhesion with plastic, metallic, and ceramic substrates
  • Long shelf life
  • Applied by dipping, spraying, roll or flow coating (as well as gravure and reverse gravure for SR-100EC)


  • 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

Three Formulations

NEI’s Easy-to-Clean coatings now come in three formulations:


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, gravure, reverse gravure, roll or flow coating and is thermally cured.


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.


NEI’s SR-500EC-UVP is a durable, transparent coating designed to protect a wide variety of surfaces from the effects of outdoor exposure, coupled with an easy-to-clean functionality and enhanced weatherability and UV protection for underlying substrates.  The single component, ambient-cure coating maintains excellent hydrophobicity, with a static water contact angle of 100 – 105°, even after 2,000 hours of QUV exposure. SR-500EC-UVP also resists scratching, chipping, and strongly adheres to metal, glass, and ceramic surfaces.

SR-500EC-UVP is easily applied by dip, spray, or brush techniques and can be cured at room temperature.
