WHAT IS OPTICAL BONDING?12 inch 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.
