Price Performance

The compelling achievement of Optitune nano science is that our scientists have created a coating polymer that can be applied in atmospheric conditions without the need for expensive Vacuum Vapour Deposition techniques.

Optitune coatings achieve the same or better performance levels on all measures of light transmittance, hardness, passivation and hydrogenation as more traditionally applied counterparts yet at a cost per meter of coated substrate saving in excess of 80%.
