Asahi Glass Co. (AGC) recently announced it will release a new self-adhesive glass for optical bonding that can bond directly to display devices used in tablets and other electronic products. The product, which reportedly simplifies the process of bonding cover glass directly to display devices, is expected to contribute to the proliferation of more vivid and clear displays. Optical bonding optimizes the refractive index of resin to minimize the loss of light for enhanced visibility.
AGC’s new cover glass has reportedly enabled the direct bonding of cover glass and display devices without creating a void through the use of a newly designed resin for bonding that can be set on the bonding surface. Any air bubbles that form during the bonding process are automatically absorbed in the resin. Bonding using this product reportedly does not require complex processing, such as high-temperature, high-pressure treatment; thus, processing can be accomplished with a much simpler methodology. In addition, the productivity is largely superior to conventional processing methods, and the process is expected to be applied to even larger displays.
