PPG’s new anti-fingerprint coating features a patent-pending alkoxy-silane formula developed exclusively by PPG. The proprietary material equips touchscreens with hydrophilic (water-absorbing) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) properties, which result in greater adhesion for better durability and low water- and oil-contact angles for enhanced fingerprint hiding.

The coating has a unique silk-like feel that creates a more pleasant tactile experience for users of smartphones, tablets and other shared devices. It also makes such products easier to clean and maintain.

“The development of enhanced anti-fingerprint functionality is critical as the use of shared devices expands,” said Dave Malobicky, PPG General Manager, Electronic Materials, and Commercial Director, Mobility. “PPG continues to advance innovations in coatings for electronic materials that are cost-effective yet demonstrate major advances in cleanability, durability and performance.”
