Anti-fog coating utilizing Advanced Coating Technologies

Dal-Bac Manufacturing deploys its advanced coating technologies across a variety of industries. Anti-fog coatings are one of our specialty services. These coatings are designed to deter moisture condensation on the coated surface to allow for clear visibility in a variety of environments. Anti-fog coatings are used for see-through panels and for a wide range of visors and protective eyewear.

Our advanced coating technologies allow us to apply anti-fog coatings to a number of different films including:

  • PET
  • Polycarbonate
  • PVC
  • PE

The coating is typically applied in a very thin layer to insure optimum visual clarity. Anti-fog coatings range from low-end water-based formulations for limited use applications too much more permanent, two part mixtures for products with long life requirements. Generally, the anti-fog coating is applied to comparatively thin films that are continuously processed from roll to roll.

Most of our anti-fog coating services utilize a Meyer rod coating system that allows us to precisely control the application of very thin surface coatings. Our process is engineered to deliver coatings in a precise layer from .001” to .005”.

Dal-Bac’s advanced coating technologies include applying both solvent and water-borne coatings to ensure the best possible result for our customers. Our engineering team works with our customers to make certain that the substrate and coating are exactly what is needed to meet specific requirements. We also provide custom formulations to meet unique customer needs.

As an ISO 9001: 2015 company, Dal-Bac takes pride in our robust quality management system that is designed to help us continuously improve and exceed customer expectations. Our process ensures that everything from the raw materials to the final product will meet or exceed customer requirements. Our inspection process includes:

  • Coating thickness
  • Coating weight
  • Residual solvents/water
  • Bond strength

We are able to turn most coating projects within a 2 – 4 week window and would welcome the opportunity to put our advanced coating technologies to work on your next project.
