We are the premier applicator of optically clear coatings onto thermoplastics such as Polycarbonate, Acrylic (PMMA), PPSU and Polyurethane. With a large range of optical coatings and various application techniques, we are at the forefront of applying coatings to flat and profiled industrial plastic components. The use of transparent plastics to manufacture high quality components in the areas of optics technology, automotive and the railway industry has been steadily growing over recent years.
Scratch resistant coatings from Optical Coating Technologies significantly upgrade plastic parts and this way enlarge the range of their application in various industries. Our own specially designed products as well as conventional coating systems are applied. These coatings are often called nano coatings as they are only a few microns in thickness. They are permanently bonded and are typically applied by spray, dip and flow (or float) coating. The application procedures depend on the requirements of the base material and can be adjusted accordingly. A dust free production environment is indispensable. Our high quality optical coatings are ensured by working under clean room conditions.
Optical Coating Technologies also applies metal coatings such as gold, silver, copper and aluminium on to plastics using vacuum deposition. These coatings are used, for example, on eye safety wear, medical components, mirrors, semi-conductor wafers, automotive decorative trim and for special effects (for TV, theatre and architect's models).
