Large Format Screen Printed Optics
Now Available from Abrisa Technologies

Santa Paula, CA – Abrisa Technologies has recently upgraded their Santa Paula facility with new equipment which enables screen printing of glass substrates in sizes up to 56” x 86” or 1,422.4 mm x 2,184.4 mm. with a tolerance of up to ±0.030” or ±0.76 mm depending on part size and image. Minimum substrate thickness is approx. 0.039” or 1 mm with maximum substrate thickness of 0.75” or 19 mm.


Screen printing is available in multiple standard and custom colors, including metallics, opaques, and semitransparent inks, and range from low temperature epoxies to high temperature frits. Minimum print resolution can be as fine as 0.005” or 0.127 mm for printing logos, icons, lettering, borders, and more.


The large format screen printing is ideal for large touch panels and display screens, outdoor displays, and digital signage applications. In addition to large format screen printing, Abrisa Technologies can also screen print glass substrates in sizes as small as 3” x 2” or 76.2 mm x 50.8 mm, with a tolerance of ±0.006” or ±0.15 mm. Minimum thickness for the smaller screen printing of 16” x 16” or 460 mm x 460 mm is 0.030” or 0.76 mm and maximum substrate thickness is 0.5” or 12.7 mm.


Abrisa Technologies’ screen printed optics can be combined with additional processes such as chemical strengthening, custom glass fabrication (cutting, edging, drilling, etc.) and the application of optical thin film coatings (AR, UV, ITO, IMITO, hydrophobic, and oleophobic) to provide a integrated package solution for display enhancement or other high quality, high precision optics application.


Hydrophobic and Oleophobic Optical Coatings from Abrisa Technologies are Ideal for Front Plate Display Applications

Santa Paula, CA – Abrisa Technologies now offers hydrophobic and oleophobic optical coatings that are ideally suited for cover plate display applications.


Abrisa Technologies’ water repellant hydrophobic coating is an organic film that will not degrade or delaminate over time, virtually lasting indefinitely. The coatings can be applied on glass substrates for optics applications with wavelengths between 250 nm and 2,700 nm. Additionally, the rugged coatings comply with MIL-C-575C for severe abrasion. The hydrophobic coating can be provided in either a coated or laminated process. Ideal for touch screens, the coatings provide a barrier against dirt, dust, and a host of aqueous solutions.


Abrisa Technologies’ oleophobic coating process creates a glass surface that is impervious to dirt, dust, oils, and other particulates, resulting in a surface that is easier to clean. Oleophobic coatings are well-suited for projected capacitive (PCAP) and capacitive touch screens, handheld devices, teleprompters, virtual reality applications, and more.


Abrisa Technologies can provide hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings on glass substrates from 0.1 mm to 25 mm thick. Coatings can be applied in conjunction with other Abrisa Technologies’ coating and fabrication processes for a highly customized, application-specific optics solution.


High Performance Glass & Coatings
from Abrisa Technologies are Ideal for
Medical Instrumentation Displays

Santa Paula, CA – Abrisa Technologies delivers a broad range of custom glass optical filters for medical imaging, testing, monitoring, and analytic instrumentation displays screens and panels. From fabricated and strengthened thin glass to complex optical thin films and coatings, Abrisa Technologies can provide the specific solution required to improve display clarity and readability, design aesthetics, durability, and functionality.


Displays used in the medical industry such as real-time imaging, vital sign monitoring, and various analytical instrumentation devices have increased in complexity. Technology adaptation and advancements in image-guided surgery and visualization, digital imaging, and remote diagnosis all rely upon high performance displays. These displays must be easy-to-read so that vital information can be evaluated and acted upon. Accurate color rendering or grey scale, high contrast, and concise viewability without loss of resolution are of paramount importance. Optical filters and protective cover glass from Abrisa Technologies meet the critical and demanding specifications required for these display screen applications.


Chemical or heat strengthened glass from Abrisa Technologies provides a durable, protective shield that is cleanable, scratch/abrasion resistant, and non-yellowing. Display glass options such as non-glare surfaces and anti-reflective coatings, as well as tinted glass improve viewability and contrast. UV and IR (heat rejection) coatings deposited directly onto the glass surface can provide for thermal control and temperature stability. Also available from Abrisa Technologies are ITO and IMITO coatings for EMI shielding. Hydrophobic coatings can be applied as well to protect display glass against dirt, dust, oils and a host of aqueous solutions for optimum performance.


Abrisa Technologies’ in-house design and engineering teams work with the display OEM to evaluate and select the most advantageous glass substrate material and coating or coatings requirements. For a fully turnkey approach, Abrisa Technologies can also fabricate the display glass panel; customizing the size, shape, thickness, edge treatment, and screen print requirements for a rugged, reliable, and cost-effective display glass solution.
