Plastic coatings

UV / EB coatings are ideal for heat-sensitive plastic substrates and offer performance improvements such as scratch and stain resistance to all types of plastics. The market is showing a high growth potential with application possibilities in consumer electronics such as mobile phones, television, computers, audio players, magnetic media, and Blue-ray / DVD players as well as vinyl flooring and vinyl tiles.

The rapid cure of UV / EB coatings allows immediate handling that speeds production, and the shorter open time provides a cleaner finish with fewer defects and rejects. They also reduce energy use and allow for recyclability.
