Display and Optically Clear Adhesives for High Aesthetic Demands and Requirements

Optically clear adhesives (OCAs) are highly transparent adhesives that bond visually clear components in optically clear laminations providing a strong, reliable, and long-lasting bond while maintaining visual clarity of the components.

OCAs transmit as much light as possible through optimal refraction and improve the contrast ratio and optical clarity of LCD, LED, and OLED screens while reducing the amount of reflected light. This results in rich colors, sharp contrast, and vivid images.

Optically clear adhesives have superior optical and mechanical attachment qualities, high dimensional stability, low shrinkage, and whitening resistance to enable rugged, durable bonds in complex optically clear laminations.

What Are Optically Clear Adhesives?

Optically clear adhesives are specialized materials designed to mechanically join surfaces with a matching refractive index. Bonding substrates with an OCA reduces light loss between layers and gives the appearance of being optically clear or invisible. Optically clear adhesives maximize display clarity.

Why Use Optically Clear Adhesives?

Optically clear adhesives reliably bond optically clear assemblies like advanced displays. Applied with precision, OCAs join layers without visual distortions or air pockets. Optically clear adhesives reduce internally reflected light for improved contrast and readability. Using OCAs in your display improves viewability in both indoor and outdoor applications and resists display whitening or yellowing over product lifetimes. 

Optically Clear Adhesives with Boyd

Optically clear adhesives and other components that support display technologies are the most difficult raw materials to handle, fabricate and assemble due to high aesthetic demands and requirements.

Display technologies that feature OCAs require a range of material functionalities and supporting components to enhance screen performance, reduce battery demands, and optimize the end consumer’s engagement with the electronic display device.
