Tekra's Marnot Advanced™ hardcoat on polycarbonate is the next generation protective hardcoat that meets the rigorous requirements of the appliance, nameplate, membrane touch switch, and lens markets. These clear hardcoated films offer enhanced abrasion resistance, superior chemical resistance, and increased pencil hardness. In addition, using refractive index matching technology, Marnot Advanced™ LI (low iridescence) Polycarbonate films have ultra-low iridescence. Iridescence, sometimes referred to as corona, is a rainbow or oily sheen that is present in other hardcoats.

Additional benefits include:

  • Enhanced chemical resistance over Marnot XL with the additional resistance of SPF 70+ sunscreen and insect repellent with 25% DEET
  • Outstanding embossability
  • Excellent die-cutability
  • First and second surface printability with solvent and UV inks, including clearing inks

Terrapin®

Tekra's Terrapin® hardcoat on polycarbonate is designed to be optically clear, highly resistant to scratching, and provide excellent protection from chemical solvents and cleaners. Primarily for opto-electronic use, these hardcoated films are excellent as the top layer of a flat panel or LCD display, due to the high priority for scratch and chemical resistance during product design.

Two products are available in the Terrapin family. Both offer high pencil hardness in addition to maximum optical clarity and chemical resistance. Terrapin S is slightly more flexible and designed to be thermoformable, a useful feature in some touchscreen and lens applications. Like Terrapin S, Terrapin G is also flexible, while providing the highest rating for pencil hardness and chemical resistance.
