What is an oleophobic coating kit?

Modern smartphones feature an oleophobic (oil-repellent) coating that protects the screen, improves smoothness, and reduces fingerprints.

However, oleophobic coatings can degrade or wear off quickly, and you will notice a patch of the screen tends to get greasy or dirty with fingerprints more easily. Also, many screen protectors do not feature an oleophobic coating, making them get grubby with fingerprints and grease.

There is a simple solution to restore your oleophobic coating, or to add an oleophobic coating (e.g. iGlaco) to your screen or screen protector, to prevent fingerprints on your touchscreen. You can use an oleophobic coating kit.

Very interesting guide. Awesome.

Do I have to remove the coating that is on the device when it's new?

Especially when the coating has some very small scratches?

And if yes, how to remove it?

Thanks

I recommend avoiding this for the iPhone 6. The curved screen simply directs the liquid into the casing.

Alex Pappajohn - Ответить

Tried this with my iPhone 6. Seems to work pretty well. I'll do a few more quotes. I noticed this actually had a beneficial effect on screen scratches. Filled them in pretty well, blends with the screen more.

Talk about a happy accident!

ckeyser - Ответить

one comment says not to use it with iPhone 6 and another one says it worked ok, so what do I do? is it any dangerous? because I bought it before your last comments but I still havent used it since I'm worried about what can happen

I always have problems with my screen, sometimes I can't see anything on my LCD.

Will Rainx do the same thing?

Seminole iFix - Ответить

RainX is hydrophbic, and not very durable anyway.

Great tutorial. Would this product also help make glass touchpads work better with sweaty, clamp fingers?

Where can I buy an anti-fingerprint oleophobic coating kit? I’ve looked online but only found screen protectors, not the liquid.

Alexis Bruslé - Ответить

I updated the article also.

What do you coat the whole surface in step 2 with?

Stojan Mihajlovski - Ответить

Will this work on eyeglasses?

keith - Ответить

Don't. It will just ruin it

Seth Loh -

Will this work on a glass phone? I just got the new moto e5 plus in mineral blue…. and the whole phone is like one big blue mirror.. fingerprints on all sides… ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….. but it’s gorgeous, and I knew that going in…

Dennis - Ответить

SOLVED.. … And didn’t have to buy a thing…

I used my bottle of “Meguiar’s PLASTX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish”

Applied it with a cotton tshirt rag.. rubbing it in thoroughly… let it sit for 2 minutes.. then buffed the entire phone with another cotton tshirt rag…

Now fingerprints don’t show up on the screen, or anywhere on the glass body of the phone…… Amazing…… and CHEAP !!!

I can't seem to find any anti-fingerprint oleophobic coating kit online. How long does the screen stay oleophobic and how often do you need to redo the process?

Krakatau -

I’ve updated the article with a source where you can buy an oleophobic coating kit:

https://www.island-trade.com/iglaco_oleo...

By the way, the coating lasts for about 30 days.

One bottle has is enough for up to applications (depends on screen size)

could this be used on the back of the ceramic xiaomi mi mix? thing is impossible to handle without getting fingerprints on it when you have the case off.

Jakob b - Ответить

How do you say 1-2 min than 2-3 days 6-8 hrs each day curing time

David Griffin - Ответить

It is 1-2 mins of work. Then you can leave it while you sleep.

It is usually OK after 2 hours, but it is best to leave overnight.

Layering the next day does improve performance, but it’s apparently optional.
