Surface treatments


Anti-fingerprint (AF) surface treatments reduce finger print marking when directly handling the display. This is most commonly combined with a touch panel.

The AF treatment is a spray coating which is applied to the front on the module and uses fluoride nano-molecules within the coating. This isolates any natural oil on a person’s finger and greatly reduces finger prints being transferred to the display.

The AF treatment also significantly increases the touch panel’s sensitivity and accuracy when used in high moisture environments and as a by-product, also provides a softer feel to the panel when touched.

The AF coating has no effect on the optical characteristics on the display or the sensitivity when combined with a touch panel.  The AF coating actually adds a “softer” feel to touch screen.

AF treatments are most commonly used in public access systems or anywhere where the appearance of the system needs to be enhanced.


The anti-bacterial (AB) surface treatment is a coating that is applied to the cover glass.  Nano-silver technology is widely used in the medical world, and when combined with a SiO2 layer, breaks down the bacterial cell wall and reduces bacteria reproduction by 99.999%.

The AB coating has no effect on any optical characteristics of the display nor does it affect the sensitivity when used with a touch panel. Popular applications of this surface treatment include medical, point of sale and multi-user applications.


The anti-glare (AG) surface treatment is a cost effective solution to reducing glare and any unwanted reflections. In normal circumstances light reflects in a predictable way. This is either specular or diffused.

Once light strikes an AG coated display, it is dispersed in different directions hence reducing the glare. The AG coating has no effect on the optical characteristics or sensitivity when used with a touch panel.
