Glass is an essential material in modern society. It is used in our homes, workplaces, vehicle, eyewear and more. Unfortunately, glass lets in ultraviolet radiation, causes glare and is susceptible to scratching. UV coating service by Allied Photo Chemical can help mitigate all these downsides of glass. With the addition of a UV-cured coating, glass can be more useful than ever.
Benefits of UV Cured Coating
UV coating for glass helps minimize the amount of dangerous ultraviolet radiation that passes through. This is helpful for eyeglasses and automotive windows as a way to protect users. A coating can also be used to prevent unwanted exposure of film or digital sensors in photography and videography.
The coating process can impart other properties such as scratch-resistance, anti-fogging and glare reduction. This makes UV coating service ideal for personal electronics, particularly mobile devices.
Additionally, UV cured coatings are more environmentally friendly than other technologies. Completely non-toxic options and are available and the coatings rely less on harmful solvents. This means that UV coatings are better for everyone.
