Anti-scratch coatings

Scratches are a curse, even if they’re tiny. Our anti-scratch solutions provide welcome surface protection for the automotive industry, construction, marine technology, and more.


For surfaces that stand up to scratches

It’s an unforgettable feeling – sitting in a brand-new car with its shiny, flawless finish, or standing outside a building with a perfect facade. Everything is so smooth to the touch. Wouldn’t it be nice if it stayed that way? But just one careless move when getting into a car, and that perfect surface is suddenly marred by small scratches – maybe from a ring on someone's finger, a handbag, or a zipper. With our special coating additives and binders, effective anti-scratch properties can be injected into all kinds of interior and exterior surfaces.

Read on to explore more about our solutions for creating scratch resistant coatings: Our organic (Durazane®) and inorganic Polysilazanes and our Tivida® AS1010 additive.

Our solutions that say "keep away" to scratches

Organic (Durazane®) and inorganic Polysilazanes 

We provide an entirely new class of coating binders that enables you to add long-lasting protection to a multitude of surfaces and protect them from annoying scratches. An anti-scratch coating containing our polysilazanes forms a dense ceramic layer for extra durability, offering excellent anti-scratch properties as well impact and abrasion resistance. 

Use our polysilazanes to create scratch-resistant finishes on surfaces in: 

  • Mobility:

    • Automotive 
    • Aerospace 
    • Public transportation, such as trams and trains 
  • Architecture & construction:

    • Building facades 
    • Interiors such as stainless-steel kitchen sinks

Our solutions can be applied to protect a range of materials: 

  • Metals such as steel 
  • Aluminum 
  • Plastics

Our solution for solvent-borne coatings

Tivida® AS 1010 Additives

In comparison to the anti-scratch function of our Polysilazanes based binder systems the Tivida® AS 1010 is used as an additive, which improves scratch resistance at concentrations as low as 1-2.5% w/w. This makes it ideal for adding scratch-resistance properties to high-gloss, solvent-borne coatings. Our Tivida® AS1010 delivers these properties thanks to functional particles based on colloidal silica and is particularly useful for preventing micro-scratching for: 

  • Mobility: 

    • Automotive interior & exterior 

Tivida® AS 1010 can be used in industries requiring a variety of resistant coatings for: 

  • Metal 
  • Glass 
  • Polymers 
  • Wood
