Coburn Technologies Debuts New ProCoat Hard Lens Coating

Product: Coburn Technologies’ ProCoat.
Top Line: Coburn Technologies is introducing ProCoat, a hard coating for backside lens coaters.
Close Up: ProCoat delivers higher abrasion resistance and offers a greater degree of adhesion across a broad range of lens materials while also providing unsurpassed tintability. Alex Incera, Coburn’s president, said, “ProCoat is the outcome of our latest coating development efforts to push the envelope of the performance of UV-curable spin coatings. The functional performance of this coating will be attractive to large commercial labs and small independents alike. You no longer have to sacrifice abrasion resistance for tintability and vice versa. And our coatings are based on Hybrid Cross Linking Technology (HCLT) allowing us to optimize performance across multiple parameters including adhesion, abrasion resistance, yields and tintability.”
Vital Stats: Like Coburn’s UVMAX and DURA-UV, ProCoat is approved for use in competitive coating systems, is fast curing and achieves higher yields at a lower cost. ProCoat is also free of volatile solvents, making it safer to ship and handle.
