Harkness Screens unveils new Nanolast coating technology

Technology and New Products

Harkness Screens announced the introduction of its new high-performance coating technology, NanolastTM.

Nanolast coating technology is an improvement added to the formulation of all of Harkness’ coated screen families (including Clarus XC, Perlux and Spectral). The new technology adds a stronger polymer structure to the existing coating technology to create a more robust and durable surface with added visual performance improvements.

David Harrison, chief technology officer of Harkness Screens, said, “At Harkness we strive to continue to improve the performance of our screens. Nanolast technology is a major enhancement providing exhibitors with a more durable screen less prone to installation or surface damage. By adding additional strength to the base coating technology, we are able to mitigate the most-often-seen types of screen damage and therefore reduce the risk of exhibitors requiring screen replacements, thus improving total cost of ownership from their Harkness coated cinema screens.”

Harrison added, “Many of our customers are now starting to rapidly adopt the latest projection technologies including phosphor and RGB laser. The unique properties of Nanolastprovide a complementary surface for showcasing the visual improvements offered in the latest generation of cinema projectors such as 4K, HDR and wide color gamut.”

Nanolasttechnology is now available from Harkness’ global manufacturing facilities in the USA, China, U.K., France and India. For more information, visit www.harkness-screens.com.
