Anyone who has held a mobile phone or handheld game knows that in a short period of time, the glass display becomes visibly dirty without anti-smudge coatings. Smudges are composites of materials resulting from contact with human skin and from being stored in pockets. While the complete elimination of smudges has so far defied science, SRI has a simplified solution for durable smudge resistance, and an easy-clean film for glass.
SRI’s anti-smudge technology solutions make the deposition of smudges much less likely and also enable easy cleaning. These features greatly enhance user satisfaction and significantly reduce the “nuisance” factor.
SRI’s anti-smudge coatings can extend the lifetime of glass or metal products by 10 to 15 percent. The anti-smudge technology is ready for scale-up and adaptation for manufacturing for glass surface applications. The durable, smudge-resistant coating technology can be further developed for use on metallic and plastic surfaces.
