IM002 Coating


IM-002 UV Curable Coating

Scratch and Abrasion Resistant Coating for molded plastics


  • Very high abrasion and scratch resistance
  • Low Haze
  • Chemical and Solvent Resistant
  • Allows subsequent coating and bonding applications.
  • Excellent adhesion to PMMA, polycarbonate and treated PET film


  • Reduces damage to surface of molded plastic surfaces
  • Protects optical quality
  • Easily cleaned surface
  • Environmentally durable


IM002 UV Cure coating is designed to provide protection to the surface of softer optical plastic surfaces in abusive or harsh environments and to reduce the probability events which would permanently mar the surface of the optical part. This coating is suitable for PMMA and polycarbonate. IM002 UV Cure coatings is coated by flow, spray, dip, spin coating as well via gravure coating techniques. Users should assure the product meets the specific needs of their application(s).
