We can provide the following surfaces and materials to your window, lens and door products:

  • Anti-Glare/Anti-reflective Hard Coating
    These materials create a matte surface that minimizes glare from in house lighting and sunlight, and provide excellent chemical and scratch resistance. Below are potential matte texture choices:

    • 12% - Matte. Lowest surface reflection.

    • 40% - Fine Matte. Low surface reflection with little loss of visual clarity. Excellent for windows, lenses and doors.

    • 60% - Very fine Matte. Low glare. Excellent for windows, lenses and doors.

    • All are resistant to scratching, abrasion, chemicals and weather.

    • Work with ECI’s engineers and designers to determine the correct surface coating for your application.

  • Gloss Hard Coating

    92% - Polished. High gloss surface. Great for attractive graphics and selective texturing that can enhance logos and other important graphics. Resistant to scratching, abrasion, chemicals and weather. Not suggested for window or lens applications.

  • Selectively Textured Hard Coating

    Creates texturing in selected areas of the product to enhance the esthetics as well as create a different surface look and feel between the window area and the rest of the product. Resistant to scratching, abrasion, chemicals and weather. Some available textures:

    • Gloss

    • Fine Matte

    • Matte

    • Brushed

    • Fine Velvet

    • Velvet

    • Suede

  • Enhanced Contrast Filters using different lens colors
