AGC to market self-adhesive glass for optical bonding

  Research and development

AGC has announced that it will soon be marketing its new self-adhesive glass for optical bonding that bonds directly to display devices used in tablets and other electronic products. Samples of this new product were on display at the Society for Information Display (SID) in Vancouver, Canada.

Self-adhesive glass for optical bonding as seen from the adhesive side
AGC, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, is soon to release its new self-adhesive glass for optical bonding that bonds directly to display devices used in tablets and other electronic products. The product, which significantly simplifies the process of bonding cover glass directly to display devices, will greatly contribute to the proliferation of more vivid and clear displays. Optical bonding optimizes the refractive index of resin to minimize the loss of light for enhanced visibility.
As a technology to improve the display quality of mobile devices and others, bonding cover glass directly to the display is on the verge of gaining wide popularity. Direct bonding realizes high contrast images by minimizing reflection while enhancing image sharpness, but it also has the drawbacks of requiring high-temperature, high-pressure processing and the curing process of the resin. In addition, the quality is particularly prone to be ununiform in midsize and large liquid crystal displays (LCDs) when direct bonding is used.
In response, AGC's new cover glass has enabled the direct bonding of cover glass and display devices without creating a void by using a newly-designed resin for bonding that is set on the bonding surface. Any air bubbles that form during the bonding process are automatically absorbed in the resin. Bonding using this product does not require complex processing, such as high-temperature, high-pressure treatment, so processing can be...
