Hard Coating Film shows excellent scratch resistance, good chemical resistance and high lifetime when used under challenging environments.
A hard coat, can be defined as a protective polymer applied to a substrate for abrasion, chemical resistance or other surface characteristics. The thickness of the hard coat typically ranges from about 1μ to about 20μ depending on the polymer and the application technique. Today’s hard coats and the substrates on which they are applied are becoming more end-use specific and in many cases, customer specific. Typically, hard coats are used for protection of surfaces in image display apparatuses such as LCD (liquid crystal displays), touch panels, CRT (cathode ray tubes), PDP (plasma display panels), EL (electrolμinescence displays) and optical disks.
Hard Coating Film industry is relatively concentrated, manufacturers are mostly in the APAC and North America. Among them, Japan output volume accounted for more than 37.40% of the total output volume of global Hard Coating Film in 2017. Tekra is the world leading manufacturer in global Hard Coating Film market with the market share of 12.72%, in terms of revenue, followed by Toray, Kimoto Ltd., HYNT and Gunze Ltd..
