Readability: Optical bonding for better viewing and durability
You may be creating a product for the visually impaired, who can benefit from the ability to differentiate between different touch-sensor functions. Other major opportunities lie in automotive applications, such as tactile control panels that help motorists keep their eyes on the road. In this sense, a novel 3D touch surface can enhance safety as well as offering a cool new feature to attract buyers.
A chemical process for engraving glass to a specific depth without penetrating the lower face. When applied to a touch panel, it is possible to create engraved areas that correspond to touchable controls such as buttons, dials, or sliders. This enables adding a tactile dimension to the user experience and can also be employed to engrave a logo or brand name in the Coverlens without any compromise to the strength of the glass.
In principle these are the exact inverse of spot facing, where the active area is indicated by a raised bump. Spot facing and touch bumps are state-of-the-art user-interface design features that are currently being adopted by display makers including our own manufacturing partners.
We can offer a range of films and filters to reduce glare and reflection, including o-film to increase viewing angles which is a lower cost alternative to our full optical bonding service. In addition, we also offer coatings which can protect your display from scratches and scuffs or privacy filters to guard sensitive information from passers-by.
Optically bonding the Coverlens to the display enhances the viewing characteristics of displays used outdoors or in bright ambient light, helping to help reduce power consumption and achieve the impact-resistance ratings demanded in sectors such as industrial and automotive.
We aim to offer reliable and long-term solutions to our B2B customers. If you are a business and would like to discuss your display and/or embedded system requirements please contact us below
