Santa Paula, CA – Abrisa Technologies, a leading supplier of high performance flat glass for the display industry can now screen print on 80 inch diagonal soda lime or low iron float glass for a wide variety of applications including digital signage, ruggedized outdoor displays, and monitors. With the increase in demand for custom large format digital signage, having a qualified U.S. supplier for thin, lightweight, and strong screen printed glass is a plus to lowering logistical costs and improving supply chain efficiency.

 

The screen print process is performed on anti-reflective cover glass that is optically bonded or laminated to the face of an LCD or to anti-glare treated glass.

 

The anti-reflective glass provides optimal viewing performance for a broad spectrum of environmental conditions by increasing light transmission for reduced reflectivity whereas the anti-glare treated glass optimizes viewing at extreme angles.

 

The screen print is typically a white or black border, printed on the back side of the glass, with custom logo, text or design additions as desired. Epoxy/polyester, frit, and metallic inks are available in either matte or gloss with PMS matching available for logos, text, and images to fit the exact specification for the project.

 

High quality multi-pass screen printing provided by Abrisa Technologies improves opacity while minimizing pinholes and light leakage and is available on 80 inch diagonal screen printed glass in thicknesses from 2-6mm.

 

In addition to screen printing the glass, the highly skilled and professional team at Abrisa Technologies can provide additional value-added fabrication services. Finishing options include scribe cut with safety seam, flat machined with chamfers, pencil ground edges and polished edges. Cutting, drilling, and slotting, are also performed at the Santa Paula, California production and manufacturing facility.

 

Precision thin film coatings such as Indium Tin Oxide (ITO), index-matched ITO (IMITO) and UV & IR Blockers can also be applied to the glass, providing optical bonding integrators with a high value-added thin glass solution from one qualified source.

ZC&R Coatings for Optics Now Offers a Family
of Solutions for Abrasion Resistant Optical Windows


Santa Paula, CA – ZC&R Coatings for Optics, a division of Abrisa Technologies, now offers a of family of abrasion resistant windows that are custom designed to meet unique customer requirements. All abrasion resistant windows feature ZC&R’s high performance anti-reflective (AR) coatings that maximize optical transmittance while eliminating image ghosting, thereby protecting optical systems in hostile as well as common operating environments.

 

Abrasion from common airborne particles such as sand or poor cleaning procedures applied to external optical surfaces can significantly degrade the optical system performance. Airborne chemicals such as hydrogen sulfide, nitric acid, sulphuric acid, carbonic acid, and other corrosive constituents of urban smog can, over time, produce staining and etching of exposed optical surfaces.

 

To counteract these harmful environmental effects, ZC&R Coatings for Optics provides three levels of protection:

  • Level 1 – Hardened anti-reflective (AR) coatings applied to conventional glass substrates for less hostile operating environments.
  • Level 2 – Hardened anti-reflective (AR) coatings on hard optical substrates for more challenging environments.
  • Level 3 – Hardened anti-reflective (AR) coatings on sapphire laminated substrates for the most hostile operating conditions.

Level 1 coatings are the most economical, provide superior optical performance over most spectral ranges, offer superior abrasion resistance in comparison to conventional windows, and are available in a variety of sizes including large apertures up to 10” in diameter.

 

Level 2 coatings are moderate in cost, provide increased abrasion resistance, while also offering significant improvement in resistance to corrosive chemical exposure, have superior optical performance over most spectral ranges, and are available in a variety of sizes including large apertures up to 10” in diameter.

 

Level 3 coatings provide maximum resistance to abrasion, significant resistance to corrosive chemicals, while also providing enhanced protection from ballistic damage with superior optical performance over most spectral ranges. Level 3 coatings are available in apertures up to 6” in diameter.

 

Typical applications include:

  • Camera lens systems
  • Telescopes
  • Point-of-purchase (POP) displays
  • Menu boards
  • Display monitors
  • Digital signage
  • LCD screens
  • Handheld displays

Anti-reflective (AR) coatings provided by ZC&R meet the following MIL specifications:

Abrisa Technologies’ Heat Strengthened & Tempered Glass Enhances Safety & Strength Characteristics


Santa Paula, CA – Heat strengthened glass from Abrisa Technologies is physically and thermally stronger than conventional glass, generally twice as strong as annealed glass. The safety characteristics also improve the bending strength over standard glass.

 

The heat strengthening process is utilized when a full temper of the glass substrate is not possible due to the thickness, size, or low thermal expansion rate of the glass substrate material. The heat strengthening process does not produce a full “dicing” pattern when the glass is broken, as is the case with glass that has been tempered. Fully tempered glass is typically four to six times stronger than annealed glass.

 

The primary difference between heat strengthened and heat tempered glass is the residual stress in the edge and glass surface, fully tempered glass is rated above 65 MPa (9,427 psi) in pressure resistance and heat strengthened glass is rated between 50 and 55 MPa (5801 and 7,977 psi).

 

The optical quality of the glass may be compromised to the extent that you see the tempering/quenching pattern when viewed through a polarizer. The cosmetics and flatness are also affected by the strengthening process; typically at 120/80 SD or at best 80/50 depending upon the size of the part.

 

Heat strengthening of glass is available in sizes of 168” x 96” (4,367.2 mm x 2,438.4 mm). This process can be done on glass with a minimal thickness of 1/8” (3.175 mm) and a maximum thickness of 1/2” (12.7 mm), (1” or 25.4 mm thick for smaller parts – up to 32”x 25” or 812.8 mm x 635 mm). In the heat strengthening process, the glass substrate is processed similar to a fully tempered part, except that the temperature and cycle times, along with the quenching parameters are varied.

 

Heat tempering of glass is available in sizes of 160” x 92” (4,064 mm x 2,336.8 mm). This process can be done on glass with a minimal thickness of 1/8” (3.175 mm) and a maximum thickness of 1/2” (12.7 mm), (1” thick for smaller parts – up to 30” x 24” or 762 mm x 609.6 mm). In the heat tempering process, the glass substrate is placed onto a roller table and then it goes through a furnace, heating up the glass above its annealing point up to about 720°C in some cases. The glass is then quickly cooled (quenched) with forced air drafts.

 

Typical applications for heat strengthened glass include: lighting fixture lenses, small cover lenses such as MR16s, PR20s, PR30s, and alike, where parts are not required to break into small shards based on the application.

 

Typical applications for heat tempered glass include: display cover lenses, decorative glass sheets and similar uses where the parts can be above 240°C and where public safety is crucial. If there is a high intensity light source behind the heat treated glass and the glass is in an application that the part needs to dice into small shards when broken, then the glass should be fully tempered.

 

Heat tempered and strengthened glass can also undergo various glass fabrication processes such as cutting, drilling, polishing, and edge work, however; these processes must occur prior to the strengthening or tempering process as damage and breakage can occur due to the stress in the glass as a result of the toughening process.

 

Abrisa Technologies processes comply with many industry quality standards, including ANSI, ASME, ASTM, ISO, MIL, JAN, and SAE.

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.

 

Chemically Strengthened Thin Glass
from Abrisa Technologies Produces Minimal Optical Distortion
in Display Panels & Touch Screens


Santa Paula, CA – Abrisa Technologies chemically strengthens thin glass per ASTM 1422 and tests per ASTM C 158. This process does not affect the optical quality of the glass, making it an ideal solution for display panel and touch screen applications. The chemical strengthening process can make the glass up to 8 times stronger than annealed float glass.
