Scratch Resistance

Nano Aluminum Oxide for Transparent Scratch Resistant CoatingsAdding NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide to surface coatings and films provides long-term scratch resistance without significantly impacting optical clarity, gloss, color, or physical properties. These Nano particles are particularly useful for improving resistance to “light” scratches, typically

NanoArc® Aluminum Oxide enhances scratch resistance in Scratch Resistant Coatings, Graphic ArtsPlastics and Automotive markets where high transparency is a requirement.

An article in the October 2010 issue of PCI magazine discusses the successful incorporation of Nanophase nanometric aluminum oxide particles into UV-cured coating formulations for improved scratch resistance.
