How To Prevent Condensation Build Up In Electronics

June 7, 2021

Our electronics are important to us, and it’s normal to want to ensure they are working correctly at all times, and nothing is preventing us from using them to their fullest potential. Fogging and condensation is a natural occurrence when there is excessive humidity or moisture in the air. When the moist air comes in contact with a cold surface, such as a window or screen, fog and condensation can build up.

Luckily with Fortec US optical bonding, you won’t have to worry about your screens fogging up at all.

Utilize Optical Bonding

Optical bonding is a crucial process that consists of applying a thin layer of silicone adhesive gel to a glass screen or touchscreen, which is then attached to an LCD panel of a monitor. This process is done to secure the two together in order to create a solid bond without any pockets of air in between them. 

One of the most important advantages of optical bonding is that it prevents any condensation build-up or fogging from occurring. Since the air gap between the panes of glass is eliminated with this process, no moisture can penetrate. 

Other advantages of the optical bonding process include:

  • Greater durability
  • Better imaging
  • Improved touchscreen accuracy
  • Protection from dust and dirt particles
  • Higher contrast
  • Improved readability in in bright environments
