Fingerprint resistant coatings for stainless steel substrates

In this paper, development of coatings with anti-finger print feature for stainless steel substrates is presented. Coatings with tailored surface roughness are demonstrated which provide these properties. Polyurethane coatings are produced by incorporation of matting agents with different particle size and surface chemistry. Depending on the amount of incorporated matting agents and their particle size, we were able to obtain anti-finger print coatings with the designed surface patterns. Chemical resistance tests of the coatings prove that they are chemically durable to be utilized in daily activities.
