  18. 18. Case: Playfields for electronic games 27/10/2016 18© sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be |  Request for coating with following properties  Anti-static  achieved  Transparent  achieved  No decrease in existing wear-resistance  improved  Matt appearance  achieved  No roughness increase (effect on ball speed)  achieved
  19. 19. Conclusions 27/10/2016 19  Electrostatic problems will remain an important issue  Increasing miniaturization and use of electronics in products  Broad range of permanent coatings that give your product anti- static properties or ESD protection  Most of these coatings tunable in a broad resistivity range  Thoroughly coating optimization necessary when adding dispersions  Combination with other properties are emerging  Increasing added product value © sirris | www.sirris.be | info@sirris.be |
