LT Series (LT-4,LT-8)

Thin Film Partners LLC provide two proprietary low temperature, solvent based fluoropolymer coating formulations. 

They are called LT-4 and LT-8

The difference between the two coatings (LT-4 and LT-8) is the solvent carrier. 

The LT-coating 4 is based upon standard solvents (acetone, butyl acetate and MEK) and provides a commercially price sensitive solution. 

The LT-8 coating uses a fluorosolvent carrier that is a safe alternative to the environment and the operator but is a more expensive option due to the costs of the fluorinated solvents. 

Performance properties of LT-4 and LT-8

The fluorocarbon coatings have excellent physical properties:

  • Hydrophobic and oleophobic
  • Superior moisture and salt barrier properties
  • Corrosion resistant
  • High resistance to chemicals/solvents
  • Resists heat to 200C
  • Survives Gamma, E-beam and EtOH sterilization
  • Good adhesion
  • Well suited for: pcb, electronics, metals, MEMS, sensors, plastics, fabrics
  • Adaptable and customizable chemistry
  • Re-workable, solderable
  • Optically clear liquid formulation
  • Film thickness from 200 nanometers to 2+ microns
  • Varying fluorocarbon solids from 0.1% upwards
  • Transparent, colorless film
  • Low viscosity, low surface tension solution

UVX (UV-cure) fluoropolymer

UVX  is a PFPE / polyurethane blended coating that displays exceptional hardness, heat and chemical resistance, and repels moisture whilst staying optically clear.

UVX is cured by ultraviolet (UV) light. This means the coating is cured very quickly. 

It has been utilised well on many substrates including glass, metal and plastics that rely on both its super hydrophobic nature (>160° in water) and hardness.

This means it works exceptionally well with monitors, screens and lther forms of telecommunications.

Performance properties of UVX

  • Used on all substrates (glass, metal, plastic).
  • UV-curable, also heat or air-dry.
  • High impact resistance
  • Super hydrophobic (>160° in water)
  • High resistance to heat and chemicals
  • Compatible with markers and pigments
  • Optimized properties at 25um
  • Can be applied to monitors and screens, electronics,  photoresists, aircraft, automotive surfaces
  • Transparent, with low refractive index
  • Coating can be modified for increased hardness, scratch resistance, and/or adhesion strength to multiple substrates

OPX (ultra-thin) fluoropolymer

OPX is a a very robust and abrasion resistant high performance PFPE blended with polysilane that has excellent hydrophobic and oleophobic properties even at ultra-thin film thickness whilst staying optically clear.

OPX is a robust and long-lasting thin film that chemically bonds to almost any surface (silica, quartz, glass, metal and most plastics).

Performance properties of OPX

  • Refractive Index 1.3
  • Contact angle (water) >110°
  • Contact angle (mineral oil) >70°
  • Withstands 5000+ rubs with steel wool.
  • Anti-scratching and anti-smudging properties makes OPX an ideal solution for coating: touch-panel displays, cell phones, LCD, optical filters/lenses and electronic boards
  • Maintains contact angle after abrasion and exposure to IPA, acetone, others.
  • Transparent film
  • Protective coatings for electronic components – ALL of them.
  • Protection for internal pcb, coatings for external case, sub-micron abrasion-resistant coatings for glass display
  • Applied as dip or spray in sub-micron layer – as thin as 20 nanometers
