Hard coating solutions for plastic lenses "TS-56 Series"

Hard coating solutions for plastic lenses improve the durability of these lenses, which are easily scratched. When coated on a plastic lens, the solution hardens and forms a thin but strong coating that protects it from scratches and damage caused by wiping.
Tokuyama’s TS-56 hard coating agent is offered as a primer and as a thermoset hard coating solution, with the former used for low refractive index lenses and the latter for high refractive index lenses.
We also sell TS-56WR2, a water repellant.
