Hard Coated Polycarbonate Sheet

Discover the versatility of hard coated polycarbonate, a remarkable plastic known for its exceptional impact resistance. Polycarbonate, though inherently soft, becomes a robust solution when treated with a hardcoat that bolsters its scratch resistance properties. This makes it an ideal choice for protecting LED displays, where durability and visual clarity are essential.


Hard Coated Polycarbonate Solutions

If you are looking for a material that offers both strength and scratch resistance, look no further than Hard Coated Polycarbonate Sheet. Engineered to provide optimal performance and durability, our sheets are perfect for a variety of applications, including enhancing electronic displays. In this article, we will discuss the features and benefits of these coated sheets, and why they are a suitable choice over other materials, such as glass or acrylic.


Our range of hard coated polycarbonate sheets, available in sizes up to 1000mm x 2000mm. Tailor your selection with options spanning sheet thicknesses from 0.5mm to 10mm. Choose between one or two-side smooth coatings, or opt for the AG coating with varying degrees of surface roughness. We also provide regular and fire-retardant grades of polycarbonate to suit diverse needs.

Scratch Resistance and Durability

One of the most significant advantages of Hard Coated Polycarbonate Sheet is its scratch resistance. This scratch resistant feature ensures that the sheeting remains clear, even after prolonged use. Furthermore, the coating provides superior resistance to chemicals, improving its overall durability. These attributes make it an ideal choice for environments that require a tough, lasting material.

Advantages Over Acrylic and Glass

When comparing materials for your electronic displays, you might consider both acrylic and glass. However, Hard Coated Polycarbonate Sheet has several benefits over these options:

  • Scratch Resistance: Polycarbonate sheets with a hard coating offer better scratch protection than both glass and acrylic.

  • Impact Resistance: Polycarbonate is more impact resistant than glass and acrylic, making it less prone to breakage or shattering.

  • Weight: Polycarbonate is more lightweight than glass, making it easier to handle and install.

  • Flexibility: Polycarbonate offers increased flexibility, allowing for easy bending and shaping without sacrificing strength.


Given these benefits, it's easy to see why Hard Coated Polycarbonate Sheet is a popular choice for enhancing electronic displays.

How Does it Work?

Clear silicone hardcoatings, typically 7 microns thick, can be applied by wet processes and give scratch resistance levels about half way between uncoated polycarbonate and glass. The coating has minimal effect on visible transmittance.

Fine inert particles can be incorporated in the hardcoat to produce a micro roughened surface which reduces specular reflectance, which improves visibility of display information. This option is referred to as the AG (anti glare) grade.

The following options are available for sheet in sizes up to 1000mm x2000mm:

  • Sheet thicknesses from 0.5 to 10mm

  • One or two side smooth coating 

  • One side AG (anti glare) coating

  • Two levels of AG surface roughness

  • Regular or fire retardant grades of polycarbonate

  • Display window CNC machined to customer's drawings from coated sheet

Useful Information

  • What is ITO coated glass?
    ITO coated glass is a type of glass that has been coated with a thin layer of indium tin oxide (ITO) material, which is transparent and conductive.
  • What is ITO used for in coated glass?
    ITO is used to create conductive surfaces on glass, which can be used in a variety of applications such as touch screens, flat panel displays, solar cells, and electronic devices.
  • How is ITO coated onto glass?
    ITO is typically deposited onto glass using a process called sputtering, which involves bombarding the surface of the glass with ions in a vacuum chamber. This causes the ITO material to be deposited onto the glass in a thin, uniform layer.
  • What are the benefits of using ITO coated glass?
    ITO coated glass has several benefits, including high optical transparency, low electrical resistance, and high chemical stability. This makes it ideal for use in applications where a conductive surface is required but optical clarity is also important.
  • Can ITO coated glass be recycled?
    Yes, ITO coated glass can be recycled like any other glass product. However, the process of removing the ITO coating can be challenging and requires specialised equipment.
  • How is ITO coated glass cleaned?
    ITO coated glass should be cleaned using a soft, lint-free cloth and a mild cleaning solution. Harsh chemicals or abrasive materials should be avoided, as these can damage the ITO coating.
  • How durable is ITO coated glass?
    ITO coated glass is relatively durable, but it can be susceptible to scratching or damage if not handled carefully. Additionally, exposure to certain chemicals or environmental conditions can cause the ITO coating to degrade over time.
  • Can ITO coated glass be custom-made to specific sizes or shapes?
    Yes, ITO coated glass can be custom-made to specific sizes and shapes to meet the needs of different applications. Customisation can be achieved through the use of specialised cutting and shaping techniques.
  • What is the cost of ITO coated glass?
    The cost of ITO coated glass varies depending on several factors, including the size of the glass, the thickness of the ITO coating, and the quantity ordered. Generally, larger quantities and thicker coatings will result in higher costs.
