Protective Coatings for Handheld Devices and Displays


Easy clean and anti-smudge performance for electronic, electrical and other component surfaces

As handheld electronic devices are taken everywhere with us every day, dirt, grime, fingerprint oils and other contaminants make it a constant challenge to keep them clean.

3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings are fast drying, easy-to-apply, protective surface modifiers that provide optimum cleaning performance for a broad range of applications and from a wide variety of surface contaminants. They provide

  • Excellent protection and repellency properties
  • Improved manufacturing efficiencies
  • Health and safety benefits
  • Environmental and sustainability benefits

These nonflammable surface modifiers offer you a reliable alternative to traditional conformal coatings – combining outstanding performance with easy application.

Features and Benefits

  • Easy clean – being hydrophobic, optimizes cleaning and anti-smudge performance
  • Excellent repellency – reduces the component surface energy, repelling moisture and many liquids
  • Smooth, low-friction tactile feel – fingers glide over the coating and creates a pleasurable user experience
  • Speed of application - air-dries in seconds, thermally cures quickly
  • Ease of application - can be applied via dip, spray*, brush or syringe dispensing
  • Sustainable – made with sustainable chemistries, they are non ozone-depleting, contain no volatile organic components and have low global warming potential
  • Health and safety – are nonflammable and low in toxicity

  • *Use of appropriate PPE or engineering controls recommended.
