Handheld mobile devices and touchscreen displays let users access information with a simple swipe, but they also tend to accumulate fingerprints, oils, liquids, cosmetics and other materials that can damage displays or make them unappealing to use. Protective coatings of touchscreens and glass-like surfaces help achieve your vision for device style, functionality and feel.
3M has decades of experience making protective coatings. Our scientists are constantly seeking the answers to how to do it all better, safer and more responsibly. The result — a broad range of ultra-thin 3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings to choose from.
In addition to coatings to protect the internal components of your device, we have expanded our offerings to include electronic grade coatings for electronics screens, panels and other glass or glass-like surfaces. These hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings are exceptionally thin and help give devices easy-clean and anti-smudge properties. Novec coatings are easy to apply using spray or dip application methods.
