Is Impact Resistant Polycarbonate Scratch Resistant?
To make the impact resistant polycarbonate sheet to be scratch resistant, a coating should be applied.
Some of the ways coatings can be applied on the sheets are;
Flow coating which results into an anti-scratch sheet.
Dip coating which involves immersing the sheet into the anti-scratch coating but it should be at a constant speed.
The sheet should be immersed in the coat at a constant speed and withdrawn at a constant speed.
Speed determines the thickness and uniformity of the anti-scratch coating.
Spin coating, coatings can be spin to apply the anti-scratch substrates on the impact resistant polycarbonate sheet.
A small deposit of the ant scratch substrate should be placed at the material center then the substrate is spinning done at a speed of 3000rpm.
Since there are high speed levels, the centripetal forces makes the substrate to spread to the edges thus leaving a thin film behind.
Roll coating, in this type of coating, rollers are used to do the coating.
The rollers being used controllably release the anti-scratch substrates onto the sheet thus making it become scratch resistant.

The polycarbonate being hit by UV rays, it leads to photo degradation that impacts material breakdown leading to loss of toughness and yellowing.
To restrain the polycarbonate from degrading, UV protecting surface should be applied to both sides of the polycarbonate.
Applying a UV surface hinders UV rays from affecting the polycarbonate thus enhancing its strength, clarity and durability.
Can You Apply Other Coating On Impact Resistant Polycarbonate?
The coatings that can be applied include the following;
By applying the anti-fog coating, fogging problems which are likely going to occur on the sheets are done away with.
The anti-fog coating contains hydrophilic agents that reduce surface tension and give a well clear vision when humidity and temperature changes.
Changing levels of humidity and temperatures causes droplets of water to form on the surfaces which brings diffraction and refraction that hinders visibility.
Anti-fog coating is important since it has the ability to spread water droplets into a single clear layer thus enabling a visibility on the surface.
An anti-scratch coating should be applied onto the surface of an impact resistant polycarbonate sheet to hard it and make it scratch resistant.
Best anti-scratch coatings are diamond coatings that can be used to increase durability and strength in environments that are harsh.
Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Coating
Having the sheets coated by hydrophobic coating prevents any fogging characteristics while hydrophilic coatings improves chemical resistance to organic solvents.
This is a thin multilayer coating that can eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of the impact resistant polycarbonate sheet.
This type of coating is used in the instances when there is high levels of light transmissions which causes the impairment of vision.
The coating has a major function of preventing any possibility of a reflection from the impact resistant polycarbonate sheet.
The coating has a function of denying static charges that tend to build up onto surfaces of the sheet hence enabling a clear visibility.
The coating is easier to use and clean thus saving time and labor.
Applying this type of coat onto the impact resistant polycarbonate sheet, due to its properties, it is able to adjust according to the light intensities.
