Surface Coatings

Sharc Matter's Leading Coating Range

With unique Sharc Matter sol-gel coatings you can modify and protect your surfaces by combining organic and inorganic chemistry at a molecular level. The Sharc Matter surface coatings product family offers protective coatings for easy-to-clean hygienic and antimicrobial applications, as well as corrosion and scratch resistance.

Application Versatility

Sharc Matter’s coating products offer a range of curing procedures enabling components of widely varying sizes and shapes to be treated easily on-site or as part of an integrated production. As a result, they exceed the performance of conventional coatings and can be used in numerous industrial applications including the electronics, construction, paper and pulp, marine and automotive sectors. The characteristics of our range include the following:

  • Easy-To-Clean
  • Water & Oil Repellent
  • Hygienic & Antibacterial
  • Corrosion Protection
  • Scratch Resistant

Treated Materials

Sharc Matter coatings are either invisible or have a minimal toning effect on the surface appearance. Different functionalities can be built into the coatings to meet individual needs, and the thickness of the coatings range from 100 nm to 20 µm dependent on chemistry and required properties. Typical materials that can be treated include:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Glass
  • Plastics
  • Ceramics

Our Ground Breaking Coatings

SHARC® Plus

Features:
• Easy-to-clean properties
• Invisible, does not change the outlook
• Good thermical resistance
• Quick and easy application

Technical data:
• Appearance: clear colourless liquid
• pH: mildly acidic
• Viscosity: DIN cup 4: 10 s
• Dilution: ready to use
• Typical consumption: 50 m2 / l

Composition and Function

Sharc® Plus generates a transparent thin film coating on mainly plastic-based substrates and maintains the original visual appearance of the surface.

The coating modifies the surface properties so that it becomes water and oil repellent. The surface can therefore be cleaned more quickly and reduces cleaning expense and effort.

The coating has a high tolerance to chemical and mechanical abrasion.

Note: Always check the chemical tolerance of the surface material before coating.

Sharc® Staine

Features:
• Easy to clean
• Invisible, keeps metallic outlook
• Easy application

Technical data:
• Appearance: clear colourless liquid
• pH: mildly acidic
• Viscosity: DIN cup 4: 10 s
• Dilution: ready to use
• Typical consumption: 60 m2 / liter

Composition and Function

Sharc® Staine generates a transparent thin film coating on stainless steel substrates which maintains the original visual appearance of the surface.

The coating creates a chemical bond with the surface material which ensures a high tolerance when cleaned. Due to its extremely thin coating thickness (< 1 μm) it does not block porous material and therefore it will not have an impact on heat transfer. It also makes cleaning easier and diminishes regular cleaning needs.

Sharc® Korroguard

Features:
• Fits to most metal surfaces
• Easy to clean
• Corrosion protection
• Good weather and wear resistance
• Quick and easy application

Technical data:
• Appearance: clear colourless liquid
• Dilution: ready to use
• Typical consumption: 100 m2 / l

Composition and Function

Sharc® Korroguard generates a hard and thin film coating on metal substrates which
modify the surface properties to create a highly hydrophobic and oleophobic surface.

Soiling is reduced and the surface can be cleaned more quickly which in turn reduces cleaning expenses and effort.

The coating eliminates corrosion and tolerates chemical and mechanical abrasion.

Sharc® Sapphire

Features:
• Easy-to-clean properties
• High Gloss
• Good Weather and Wear Resistance
• Quick and easy application

Technical data:
• Appearance: clear colourless liquid
• Dilution: ready to use
• Typical consumption: 100 m2/ liter

Composition and Function

Sharc® Sapphire generates a transparent, hard and glossy film coating on a range of different substrates.

The coating modifies the surface properties to create a highly hydrophobic and oleophobic surface. It has a high tolerance to chemical and mechanical abrasion and is therefore used predominantly as a high-performing anti-scratch coating – perfect for surfaces such as car paints etc.

Sharc® Glass

Features:
• Water and dirt repellent surface, easy to clean
• Excellent adhesion on glass
• Invisible, does not change the outlook
• Quick and easy application

Technical data:
• Appearance: clear colourless liquid
• pH: acidic
• Viscosity: DIN cup 4: 10 s
• Dilution: ready to use
• Typical consumption: 50 m2 / l

Composition and Function

Sharc® Glass generates a very thin coating on glass substrates and maintains the original optical appearance of the surface.

The coating modifies the surface properties, providing highly hydrophobic and oleophobic characteristics. As a result when applied to a car windscreen (for example) it reduces the need for wipers, and ice scraping becomes far easier.

Soiling is also reduced and the surface can be cleaned more quickly, reducing cleaning expense and effort.

It also tolerates chemical and mechanical abrasion.
