Optical bonding



Optical Bonding Competence


Optical bonding enables the connection of the touch sensor, cover glass and display to one unit using different bonding technologies.

SCHURTER has continuously developed its bonding capabilities in-house and expanded it with a wide range of investments regarding pretreatment and glass cleaning as well as in the bonding process.

Benefit from the various bonding technologies and our know-how in order to get the best solution for your customized application.


Benefits of Optical Bonding

Better Readability

 • Optical Bonding eliminates the reflections between display and

   touchscreen / front glass. The refraction of light is reduced,

   thus increasing the contrast and the optical brilliance.

No condensation

 • By eliminating the air gap between the components no moisture

   can penetrate.

No dust and dirt particles

 • By eliminating the air gap no dust and dirt particles can penetrate.

Increased robustness

 • A touch panel with Optical Bonding has an increased stability

   and resistance to mechanical effects such as pressure, impact or

   vibration. This way of installation significantly reduces the risk of

   glass splintering or breakage.

Improved heat dissipation

 • By filling the insulating air gap between the components, heat can

   be derived to the outside.

Improved sensitivity

 • The eliminated air gap between touch and glass has a positive

   impact on touch detection and functionality, and the controller

   does not need to constantly recalibrate due to the static connection


Bonding Possibilities for touchscreens

Sensor Bonding

  • Sensor_Bonding_Lamination

    Optical Clear Adhesive (OCA) Lamination

    This is a lamination process with optically clear adhesive (OCA). A lamination from "soft to hard" takes place, e.g. a film-based sensor (ITO / mesh) behind the cover lens. With the help of storage in an autoclave, the air bubbles are eliminated.

  • Sensor_Bonding_LiquidBonding

    Liquid Bonding

    Here bonding of "hard to hard" is done, i.g. a glass-based PCAP sensor is bonded behind the front glass.

  • Sensor_Bonding_Lamination

    Optical Clear Film Lamination

    Glass-based PCAP sensors are bonded with a highly transparent film behind the cover lens. The film is placed between the two substrates. The parts are bonded together in a vacuum, so that no air bubbles occur.

Display Bonding

  • Display_Bonding_AirGap

    Air Gap Bonding

    In this process, the display is glued all around with an adhesive frame directly behind the sensor or on the printing of the cover lens in the clean room. An air gap between the display and the sensor / cover lens remains.

    Air bonding is a simple and cost-effective way to connect displays with cover lenses or touch sensores. Depending on the application, the assembly takes place with single adhesive strips or with a closed adhesive frame.

  • Display_Bonding_LOCA

    Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive (LOCA) Bonding

    The air gap between the display surface and the rearside of the sensor is filled with a UV liquid adhesive. The adhesive is silicone-free, non-aging and UV stable. The liquid adhesive is applied over the cover glass and then bonded to the touch panel or TFT panel. The adhesive is spread evenly ...

  • Display_Bonding_DryBonding

    Dry Bonding

    In the dry bonding process, the bonding material is cut to the size of the visible display surface. The assembly of the front glass with the touch and display is carried out under vacuum in the bonding machine. This method is not suitable for all displays.
