Tekra offers an assortment of hardcoated polyester film applications that are manufactured with specific characteristics to meet the vast needs of various marketplaces. Some of our most popular solutions are Marnot® XL, Marnot Advanced™, ProTek®, and Terrapin®.

Marnot® XL

Tekra’s Marnot® XL coating offers superior abrasion, scratch, and chemical resistance. Available in either one or two-sided coating, with a clear or matte finish, Tekra's Marnot XL polyester meets the stringent requirements of the appliance, nameplate, membrane touch switch, and lens markets. This option is also available in 20, 55, 75, or 90 gloss levels.

Additional Benefits of Marnot® XL

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

Marnot Advanced™

Our Marnot Advanced™ coating is the next generation protective hardcoat that provides all the benefits of Marnot® XL with the addition of a higher pencil hardness rating and added chemical resistance to sunscreen and insect repellent. These hardcoated films are ideal for the appliance, nameplate, membrane touch switch, and lens markets.

Additional Benefits of Marnot Advanced™

  • Increased pencil hardness of up to 3H
  • Enhanced chemical resistance over Marnot XL, including resistance to SPF 70+ sunscreen and insect repellent with 25% DEET
  • Enhanced abrasion resistance
  • Outstanding embossability
  • Excellent die-cutability
  • 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 a higher optical quality or processing performance. This polyester offering is a fine texture, satin, and weatherable option.

Additional Benefits of ProTek®

  • Abrasion and chemical resistant
  • Accepts multiple passes of UV inks
  • UV resistant for outdoor applications

Terrapin®

Tekra’s Terrapin® on polyester is designed to be optically clear, highly resistant to scratching, and provides 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.

Additional Benefits of Terrapin®

  • High pencil hardness
  • Maximum optical clarity and chemical resistance
  • Flexible and thermoformable
