Smartphone and display coated with Optool for Anti-Fingerprint effect

Anti-Fingerprint technology OPTOOL

DAIKIN developed OPTOOL as an innovative premium treatment for specifically engineered-to-protect display, optical, and glass surfaces. OPTOOL is a fluoropolymer containing functional groups that form strong bonds with the treated substrate, resulting in an effective anti-smudge coating.

It provides the highest surface protection with an extremely thin coating. OPTOOL can be used to reduce fingerprinting on smartphone front (glass) and back sides (plastic), on eyeglasses, touch displays of navigation systems, high-gloss (e.g. piano black) surfaces in car interiors, and any other glass or plastic surface.

OPTOOL provides to treated surfaces:

  • excellent water & oil repellency
  • easy-to-clean properties
  • lubricity & smooth touch
  • no change in optical properties
