Protective Shield

Home / Enhancement Solutions / Protective Shield


Optically bonded displays provide superior optical characteristics and mechanical robustness.

Optically Bonded “Cover Glass” can be materials such as glass, polycarbonate, acrylic, touch screens, or other optically clear overlay material placed in front of the LCD panel. If needed, integrated ITO Heaters and EMI/RFI shielding can also be included in the bonding process providing a feature for the most extreme requirements.

Display Protection

Displays front surface is typically a soft plastic material. This front surface is easily scratched, even from routine cleaning. With optical bonding a protective “cover glass” is placed on the display. An optically bonded display can be built into a weatherproof system. In fact, IDS have bonded cover glass for use by underwater divers.


An optically bonded display will help contain materials in the event of breakage (an impact directly to the display or crash in a vehicle).

Dust & Moisture

By eliminating the gap between the LCD and the cover glass, dust and moisture cannot accumulate.

Vibration & Mechanical Shock

It has been demonstrated that an optically bonded display is superior at resisting the effects of vibration and mechanical shock.
