Perfluoropolymers for Improved Anti-Fingerprint Coatings
As electronics advance with increasing demands for user satisfaction, consumers expect an anti-smudge effect on their smartphones, tablet, computer, and laptop screens. Fingerprint smudges impair vision, and customers are searching for a high-performance, soft-touch screen that is easy to clean.
Perfluoropolyethers are the solution of choice for anti-fingerprint (AF) coatings thanks to their unique combination of water/oil repellency, easy cleanability, anti-smudge, and lubricity. They also offer low surface energy and water/oil repellency, a low friction coefficient, soft-touch, easy removal of fingerprints, resistance to hydrolysis and chemical attack, and improved durability.
