Transparent plastics, as optical components, are used for many applications to replace more expensive and fragile glass components. The primary disadvantage in the use of plastic optical components is their susceptibility to scratching. This inherent property of plastics limits their applicability. Abrasion resistant surfaces on plastics now being marketed have expanded the applicability of plastics; however, deficiencies still exist. Of major concern are the long high temperature cure, batch process, and the limiting to thick rigid substrates. A flexible, formable, rapid curing abrasion resistant coated plastic film has been developed at the 3M Company. This paper will present the properties and applications for this flexible abrasion resistant coated plastic film.
