Processing requirements such as cure speed and viscosity may also be altered for optimal system compatibility and performance.
Master Bond Optically Clear Systems for Display Applications
Optical clarity is one of the many important properties a display industry epoxy may require. Much investment of research and development has yielded a high-end line of optical adhesives, boasting optical clarity, and specially formulated for reliable performance in the potentially trying climates of electronic devices. Specially optically clear compounds offer service temperatures from as high as 600ºF (300ºC) to as low as cryogenic temperatures (4K). Spectral transmission ranges from 300 nanometers to in excess of 2000 nanometers are available. Typical optical transmission measurements in the most widely used 300-400 nanometer range are greater than 90%. In addition, these optically transmissive compounds exhibit excellent long-term stability and exceptional resistance to unfavorable environment exposures including moisture.
