Terrapin®: The Thin Optical Film Coating
The Terrapin® family of coatings are specialty hardcoats designed to be optically clear and highly resistant to scratching, primarily for opto-electronic use. They are designed to provide high clarity and excellent protection from chemical solvents and cleaners. They are excellent as the top layer of a flat panel or LCD display, due to the priority placed on scratch and chemical resistance during design.
Terrapin Optical Film: Thermoformable & Chemical Resistant
Terrapin provides maximum surface protection from abrasion and scratching, as well as maximum clarity. Slightly more flexible, Terrapin S is designed to be thermoformable, a useful quality in some touchscreen and lens applications.Terrapin G, available on either polycarbonate or polyester film substrates, draws on nanotechnology to raise the bar for surface durability while retaining substrate flexibility and optical clarity. Terrapin G also offers improved resistance to common household and industrial cleaning chemicals as well as oils and food products, and exhibits superior adhesion to sputter coated metals and oxides.
