Coated Polycarbonate Frequent Questions

Coated Polycarbonate Frequent Questions

    • We apply coatings to resist scratch and abrasion and reduce glare and reflection on polycarbonate plastic. There are datasheets on each coating located under the “Datasheets” tab at the top of every page on our website. Note that we don’t sell polycarbonate coatings: we COAT polycarbonate.

    • We work with rigid polycarbonate (>0.030” thickness), in both sheet and molded (3D) form. Note that we do not coat films (<0.030” thickness).

    • TSP has the capabilities to coat via flow, dip or spray and cure via thermal or UV energy. All coatings are applied in a Class 10,000 Cleanroom. The method used for your particular application is determined by which produces the highest quality most economically for your particular use.

    • Yes, depending on the part geometry. Location and size of lips, holes, edges, etc. will determine coating feasibility. Supply us with a sample polycarbonate part or part drawing and we can provide you with a quick assessment.

    • Yes and yes. We can supply you with a coated polycarbonate sheet or sheet blank, or supply you with a finished, fabricated flat part. We have full fabrication capabilities – lasercutting, CNC, precision saw cutting, etc. – to finish out your part so it is ready-to-install.

    • We can handle AR coat jobs up to 12” x 12” in size (please consult the DURAVUE® 7000 datasheet). Larger AR parts are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

    • Unit cost is a function of many factors, including: size, thickness, material, quantity, type of coating and in-use cosmetic acceptance criteria. By supplying us with these inputs we can quickly provide you with a quotation.

    • TSP’s siloxane-based DURAVUE® hardcoats are high-performance coatings, meeting or exceeding the most stringent requirements of Automotive, DoD (Military), Aerospace, and Electronic OEMs around the world.
