WHAT IS OPTICAL BONDING?15 inch monitor optical bonding

Some monitors have a sheet of glass over the LCD panel. This protects the panel from accidental or intentional damage. However, the glass also produces unwanted glare and reflections. Internal reflections in the air gap between the glass and the LCD panel diminish image quality even further. In order to combat this, monitors are optically bonded.  Optical bonding is the process of laminating protective glass or a touch screen panel to the LCD panel. An optical-grade resin is inserted between the glass and LCD.


This completely fills the air gap. It will not only eliminate the internal reflections, but increase the contrast ratio. This makes the screen much more viewable in bright light conditions. Optical bonding will also eliminate internal moisture and condensation. Moreover, it will make the monitor more rugged and durable. Lastly, an Anti-Reflective coating is applied to the outside of the glass. Consequently, this will drastically reduce glare and surface reflections. Optical bonding ensures monitors will be highly viewable in bright, indirect sunlight. If sunlight is falling directly onto the face of the monitor, our SRM or SX Series of Sunlight Readable monitors would be most advantageous. Our Sunlight Readable monitors provide 1,000 nits to 2,500 nits brightness. They are for use in direct sunlight.


We design these daylight viewable screens to operate in nearly any environmental conditions.  Whether in frigid conditions or blazing heat, these daylight monitors will survive and thrive. To clarify, some of these monitors will operate in temperatures down to 32°F (0°C).  They will also withstand brutal heat.  Moreover, operating  temperatures go up to +149°F (+65°C).  Additionally, the ABS enclosure will assure years of reliable imaging performance.  Specifically, typical MTBF for these monitors is 50,000 hours.
