SCHOTT’s engineers and technical experts put the ultra hard coating through rigorous tests to simulate real-world usage. The ultra hard coating underwent a fierce sandpaper test with very hard Korund sandpaper at a force of 2 kilograms and 50 oscillations, a trial designed to mimic the keys, coins, and sand that mobile devices encounter in handbags and pockets.
The anti scratch performance of SCHOTT Hard & Clear is close to that of sapphire

Even strong scratch performance of alumino-silicate glass can be improved further with SCHOTT Hard & Clear coatings.
SCHOTT Hard & Clear coatings are close to sapphire performance.
