Antibacterial Touchscreen Treatments

The spread of bacterial infections from hand contact is the clear message in our Covid-19 dominated world, and the increasing use of public touch screens, puts their use from a public hygiene perspective at the forefront of the agenda. Antibacterial touchscreen treatments can significantly reduce the spread of infections.

Applying an anti-bacterial surface treatment on PCAP touch panels or displays, reduces bacterial reproduction by up to 99.99%.  This treatment is becoming increasingly popular not just in medical devices, but also POS (point-of-sale), kiosks, ATMs & ticket machines. 

Relec’s partners at Rocktouch, have developed an antibacterial touchscreen treatment which meets the requirements of the JIS Z 2801 standard for testing the ability of plastics, metals, ceramics and other antimicrobial surfaces to inhibit the growth of microorganisms or kill them.

In accordance with the test standards of JIS Z 2801, both treated and non-treated glass are covered with the same number of bacteria (Staphylococcus aurous, Escherichia coli), and after 24 hours, a comparison is made of their ability to reproduce.  Tests show that the reproduction rate is reduced by more than 99.99%

The Rocktouch antibacterial treatment can be applied to any top glass cover lens (standard or custom) over the entire PCAP and TFT portfolio.  We also offer a range of other surface treatments including Anti-fingerprint and Anti-glare coatings.  Our engineers here at Relec are available today to talk you thorough your display application and find the best solution for your project.
