High Hardness, Scratch and Corrosion Resistant Coatings

We invite you to join this 30-minute webinar presented by Michael Middleton, Senior Thin Film Design Engineer at Edmund Optics Florida, and James Karchner, Laser Optics Sales Manager.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will have a strong understanding of:

  • Why abrasion and corrosion resistance may be important for your system
  • Tradeoffs between DLC coatings and other anti-reflective coating types
  • How coatings are tested for abrasion and chemical durability
  • Ideal applications for DLC and other high-durability coatings
