Mobile device makers have adopted expensive cover glass, but those materials still suffer from reflectivity and scratches, the bane of smartphone ownership. “Hard & Clear” increases clarity and increases scratch resistance. With “Hard & Clear” reflections can be reduced by up to 80 percent1 and scratch resistance increased by up to 90 percent2 compared to an uncoated cover glass. “Hard & Clear” can be applied on various glass types3.
Increased Scratch Resistance2
One for all
Low add on costs
1 Comparison of average reflections on coated (with Hard & Clear Type II Durable Anti-Reflection) vs. uncoated chemically strengthened lumino silicate glass. Measured for single air – glass interface for the wavelength 400 – 700nm (relevant wavelength for the human eye)
2 Sandpaper scratch test applied. Chemically strengthened alumino-silicate glass coated with Hard & Clear Type I (Ultra Hard) compared to traditional uncoated chemically strengthened alumino-silicate cover glass
3 Various alumino-silicate glass types tested. Coating characteristics may differ if other glass substrates used.
