Hardcoated Polyester

For the varied markets that need an enhanced polyester film, Tekra offers an assortment of hardcoated polyester branded products each with their own unique characteristics.

Marnot® XL

Tekra's Marnot® XL on polyester offers superior abrasion, scratch, and chemical resistance. Available in one or two side coated, with clear or matte coatings, Tekra meets the stringent requirements of the appliance, nameplate, membrane touch switch, and lens markets. With clear, 20, 55, 75 and 90 gloss levels available, these films offer various polished and matte finishes for a wide range of applications.

Additional benefits include:

  • Improved pencil hardness of up to 2H
  • Outstanding embossability
  • Excellent diecutability
  • First and second surface printability with solvent and UV inks, including clearing inks

Marnot Advanced

Tekra's Marnot Advanced™ on polyester is the next generation protective hardcoat that meets the rigorous requirements of the appliance, nameplate, membrane touch switch, and lens markets. These hardcoated films offer enhanced abrasion resistance, superior chemical resistance, and increased pencil hardness.

Additional benefits include:

  • Increased pencil hardness of up to 3H
  • Enhanced chemical resistance with the additional resistance to SPF 70+ sunscreen and insect repellent with 25% DEET
  • Outstanding embossability
  • Excellent diecutability
  • First and second surface printability with solvent and UV inks, including clearing inks

ProTek®

ProTek® is Tekra's line of premium protective hardcoat films designed for those requiring higher optical quality or processing performance. Within the ProTek® polyester offering is a fine texture, satin, and weatherable option. All of these options are abrasion and chemical resistant and are able to accept multiple passes of UV inks. ProTek® Weatherable is Tekra's exclusive UV resistant hardcoat for outdoor applications.

Terrapin®

Tekra's Terrapin® on polyester 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.
