Hardcoat Polyester & Polycarbonate Films
Since the installation of our first coating line in 1984, Tekra has brought value to our customers by applying a range of specially designed protective hardcoats on plastic substrates, including polyester and polycarbonate. Tekra's hardcoat brands include Marnot® XL, Marnot Advanced™, and ProTek® for nameplates, membrane touch switches and lenses; and Terrapin® for flat panel and LCD displays. Our product scope provides a wide range of matte levels, scratch and abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and weather resistance, among other characteristics.
Our hardcoats are designed with the user in mind. They're optimized to allow first-surface decoration for texturing, second-surface printability with both solvent and UV inks, and clean, easy diecutting and embossing.
Tekra also offers hardcoated overlaminates whose primary function is to protect underlying images from scratching, marring, and tearing. Like all of our other coatings, overlaminates can come in a number of different gloss levels and can be specially designed for your particular application.
In addition to our standard product offering, Tekra has the capabilities and technical expertise to develop unique, custom coatings to meet the needs of OEMs. Our dry erase coating is just one example of Tekra's ability to tailor products for a specific customer requirement. Tekra can also toll coat customer supplied specialty substrates. Our fully staffed R&D department works with you to create a custom coating solution.
