Non-glare coating A3, i.e. MAT FINISH like on ANTIFLEX®-AR3, but with additional hard coating on both surfaces to increase scratch resistance (surface hardness of 6-8 H – pencil hardness – compared to 2-3 H of uncoated acrylic).
The test for surface hardness defined by ttv will irreparably damage any other plastic filter but leaves ANTIFLEX®-AR3/2h undamaged: sliding a weight (diameter 40 mm) of 250p – with a pad of steel wool #1 underneath – 3 times across the surface will not cause any visible scratches.
Improved chemical resistance protects the material not only from damages caused by oil, grease, or acids, but also prevents substances as aggressive as acetone from harming the surface.
Vast areas of application open up for this light-weight, hard to break ANTIFLEX®-AR3/2h because of its optical quality (gloss < 55%, haze < 2%, transmission 91%) well above industry standard for etched glass windows, and its flexibility in tint matching to enhance contrast.
ANTIFLEX®-AR3/2h is ttv‘s precision cast acrylic sheet - LUXACRYL® - for applications with requirements of excellent optical quality, but with a special hard coat on both surfaces (pencil hardness 6 - 8 H) to enhance scratch resistance and one-side non-glare coating.
Surface Test applied: Sliding a weight (diameter 40 mm) of 250p - with a pad of steel wool #1 underneath - 3 times across the surface does not cause any visible scratches.
Applications: Whenever scratch resistance of cast acrylic sheet (pencil hardness 2 to 3 H) does not meet the requirements; mainly as windows for any type electronic display, especially for LC and TFT displays.
Sheet size: Standard 550 x 400 mm; thicknesses from 0.5 mm to 5.0 mm (for off-the-shelf thicknesses see stock list). Thickness tolerance +/- 0.1 mm (for thicknesses up to 3.0 mm) and +/- 0.2 mm (for thickness 4.0 mm). ttv also supplies cut to size or machined to customer‘s drawings (including silk screen printing and adhesive).
Special Production: non-stock thicknesses and tints.
