Bonding Options at Boyd
LOCA offers the most robust and best overall performance of any bonding technology. Handheld devices such as tablets and laptops have led the way using LOCA in display integration. Other industries such as agriculture, military and avionics have incorporated LOCA because of its durability. Boyd is a licensed converter of DuPont's Vertak® bonding technology, which allows us to provide customers with the latest in LOCA display enhancement technology. Boyd’s LOCA is also a popular option because it is reworkable.
OCA is commonly used on touchscreens, LCD flat panel displays, transparent graphic overlays and other devices requiring an optically clear bond. OCA’s thin, consistent thickness makes it an ideal choice for flexible to rigid bonding and tight tolerance bonding situations. OCA is classified as a dry film, pressure-sensitive adhesive and there are different versions depending on the application and substrate to which it will be applied.
Economical and lightweight, an air gap display construction is more common in lower-resolution, immobile, price-conscious products such as point-of-sale equipment and vending machines. The layers are integrated with a gasket leaving behind a small air gap. This method lacks support between the screen and LCD, can be difficult to read in bright light, and can be prone to parallax issues, breakage, and moisture condensation.
Boyd brings over 15 years of integration experience working with every major type of touchscreen technology. Our engineering team can help you integrate a custom touchscreen system perfectly suited to your unique application, using our vast network of premier touchscreen manufacturers to provide the best technology for your device.
