Why Optical Bonding Matters

January 4, 2018

Fact: when it comes to optical bonding, Apollo takes the lead. When looking into a custom touch screen display, it’s important to protect your device from the start — and that’s where optical bonding comes into play. If you’re not sure of the benefits of optical bonding, well you’re in luck: we’re here to help!

Ultimate Protection

Think of your custom touch screen display as a piece of glass. Although your device isn’t as fragile as the clear material, it can be damaged over time due to ware and tear. If you’re looking to preserve your touch screen display, then it’s important to invest in optical bonding. Here at Apollo, we take the lead in optical bonding. With our state of the art VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding, your custom touch screen display will be able to withstand the test of time — and any firm handling that comes its way. Another way to look at optical bonding is that it will increase the lifespan of your display — but how so?

Increases Lifespan

When you invest in optical bonding from Apollo, it will increase the lifespan of your custom touch screen display. We get it: when you have a custom display, sometimes your audience will handle the touch screen with some force — which could lead to some damage. When your display is equipped with our state of the art VacuBond® Vacuum Bonding technology, it will preserve your device and save money, too. Think of optical bonding as an important investment for your business, since this protective solution will keep the device in tact — and won’t need to be replaced on a yearly basis.

Preserves Visual Quality

Another important feature of optical bonding is that it preserves the quality of your device. Since many custom touch screen displays will be exposed to natural elements and intense exposure to sunlight, optical bonding will act as a shield — which will preserve the visual elements of your display. The best way to think about optical bonding is to think of it as a pair of industrial sunglasses for your device. It will help maintain the screen’s overall visual components and will keep your presentation looking new as time progresses onward.
