Display Visibility a Problem in Sunlight?

Then Optical Bonding could be the answer. Display touch screens or glass are layered onto a module, leaving a tiny air gap. Environments of high brightness are a problem as light reflects as it travels through the various mediums, impairing the intensity and clarity of the end image by lowering the brightness and readability.

Then Optical Bonding could be the answer.

When Displays are manufactured the touch screen or glass is layered onto a module, which leaves a tiny air gap. In outdoor environments or where high brightness prevails this can be a problem. A problem which is caused by the light reflecting when it travels through the various mediums. This refraction through the layers impairs the intensity and clarity of the end image thus lowering the brightness and therefore the readability.

This is where optical bonding comes into its own.By bonding the display module and glass together with a transparent adhesive, the air gap is filled, which means there is no refraction and more light is able to get to the surface of the screen so that the image is brighter and more able to be read.

Optical Bonding is therefore important in making screens sunlight readable, but it also makes the screen more physically durable. The additional of the layer of the adhesive absorbs shock giving high durability which is particularly important when used in areas of high usage or harsh environments.It also prevents dust and liquid from getting between the layers.

  • Reduced reflections and refractions
  • Anti-vandal & scratch resistance ensuring durability and ruggedness
  • Contrast ratio greatly increased
  • Improved impact resistance to vibration and moisture
  • Prevents condensation which can happen between the layers

There are various types of optical bonding and here at RDS we can advise on the best route for your requirement.We offer a complete service.
