Nanocomposite ultra-protective barrier coating for optical storage.
The new generation of CDs and DVDs hold a higher density of data and are used in more sensitive equipment. Even minor disc damage can result in lost data. Nanofilm has developed a proprietary thin film that includes functionalized nanoparticles for significantly enhanced durability and protection.
Nanofilm's nanocomposite films are 3-5 microns thick, are compatible with polycarbonates and acrylics, and can be applied by various methods, including spin-coating, spraying and dip coating.
These films display the following characteristics:
* Abrasion resistant
* Soil resistant
* Contaminant resistant
Nanofilm has partnered with companies in the field to develop custom coatings or to reformulate a manufacturer's existing coating to add new properties.
