Environmentally sustainable coating solutions to elevate “Your Brand”.
LTI Coating Technologies, LLC (LTI) has an extensive line of thermal and UV-cure coatings, solvent-based and solvent-free (100% solids) sustainable coating solutions for plastics, metal and glass. Additionally we have a technical support team available to provide qualified coating development and support as well as a staff of mechanical personnel for design and support of coating application equipment. Our coating solutions add premium high performance abrasion and chemical to products by enhancing durability, extending its shelf-life, and improving cosmetic appearance for products and parts in a number of industries including aerospace, automotive, architecture and building, electronics and medical devices to ophthalmic eyewear.
Advantages of UV-Cure Coatings
- Fast curing – reduced work in process
- Stable at room temperature – Easier processing and longer shelf-life
- 100% solids technology – no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds)
- Primers not required – lower cost
- Flexible processing – spin, dip, flow, spray, web
UV curable coatings are available in both solvent-based and 100% solids formulations. The choice is dependent upon the geometry of the part to be coated and the application method utilized. Solvent-based coatings can be used with most application techniques and are required for dip and flow applications. Solvent-free (100% solids) coatings can be applied by spin, spray, screen, and web systems. The absence of solvents makes these coatings attractive from a health and environmental perspective. LTI is at the forefront of development of 100% solids technology and pioneered the use of these coatings in the ophthalmic lens industry.
Advantages of Thermal Cure Coatings
Thermal cure coatings are based on polysiloxane (Si-OH-Si) chemistry. These coatings offer the highest performance characteristics and are particularly well suited as a base for thin film coatings. In addition, the thermal cure aspect allows for even cure across complex geometries that may not allow for UV light exposure. Application techniques for thermal cure coatings are typically dip, spin, or flow. All of our thermal cure coatings are solvent-based.
