3 Benefits of VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding

June 8, 2022

What is VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding?

VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding, also known as direct dry optical bonding, is the most advanced optical bonding in the industry! Optical bonding refers to the process where a protective layer of resin is applied between the glass and the screen’s TFT panel. This is done to bond the two layers tightly to create a stable, sleek laminate without any gaps or air pockets. 

Unlike traditional optical bonding utilizing a wet process with a liquid adhesive that can be messy and lead to a lower-quality result, VacuBond® uses a dry process. This dry process uses a pure silicone gel sheet with the bonds performed in a vacuum chamber, ensuring perfect results every time.  

VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding Benefits

There are a variety of benefits to choosing Fortec US VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding for all of your optical bonding needs. Some of these benefits include:

Zero Optical Defect Production

Due to the dry process, there is minimal mess and air bubbles. The VacuBond® process, as a result, yields excellent results every time with no imperfections visible to the naked eye. The touch accuracy and imaging will also be improved and, therefore, will be brighter.

No Condensation or Dust 

Screens that aren’t properly optically bonded often can moisture and dust particles in through the air gap and under the screen, making it difficult to view the image and reducing touch accuracy. Thanks to the eliminated air gap with VacuBond® vacuum bonding, no moisture or dust will be able to penetrate the screen, meaning there will be no clouding, fogging, or condensation build-up. This always means that these screens work well for outdoor applications. 

Vibration and Shock Resistance

Optical bonding helps make screens more durable, but with VacuBond® vacuum bonding, they are stronger than ever! After the optical bonding is completed, screens are more durable and can withstand higher levels of shock and vibrations, allowing them to last longer.
