MacDermid Enthone has unveiled its range of XtraForm hardcoated films, including XtraForm Antiglare, which aims to solve evolving automotive interior design needs and challenges while providing unrivaled performance.
With innovation in the automotive industry reaching new levels, and an ever-growing interest in electric vehicles, the need for sleek, integrated touchscreen film technology is growing in importance. MacDermid Enthone’s XtraForm films, with a wide range of finishes, aim to harmonize and tailor cockpit interior design with seamless, integrated functionality and decoration, enabling applicators to produce high-quality automotive parts.
XtraForm Antiglare, a formable and textured film designed for deep draw 3D Film Insert Molding (FIM) applications, allows images to be seen without the distraction of surface glare from bright lights or the reflection of moving objects. With this solution, applicators can develop antiglare surfaces on 15 to 75 gloss units.
According to MacDermid Enthone, the textured surface gives high-quality optics through an exceptional combination of gloss, clarity and haze and feel – making it ideal for dashboards and display units with high-performance characteristics. Achieved by the XtraForm process and XMAPP Quality Performance System, the formable automotive compatible gloss and antiglare film allows design flexibility to meet the requirements of sleek, integrated touchscreen film technology. In addition to controlling glare and enhancing user experience, XtraForm Antiglare offers a wide range of decorative finishes to improve aesthetic appeal.
