The success of iPhone and iPad [iPhone and iPad are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries] are triggering a boom in touch panel displays. The touch panels are often attached in front of the display. The bonding gap in between causes undesired reflections and limited readability in direct sunlight.
Bonding the touch panel directly to the display can circumvent this effect. DELO’s new adhesive family of optically clear adhesives offer multiple possibilities. It is also possible to bond cover glasses of industrial displays, for example, to protect them from extreme environmental conditions or vandalism. Optionally, adhesive below potentially existing shadowed areas can also be cured with high reliability, such as when bonding black print to cover glass.
