Screens used in public spaces or healthcare environments also have to stand up to harsh chemicals and hospital grade cleaners.

Gleicher Manufacturing Corp has partnered with 3M to help electronic device makers engineer a better screen with 3M™ Display Enhancement and Protection films.
Close to 1 in 4 smart phone displays end up with cracks or damage of some sort (1). And with prices ranging between $254 for Android and $687 for iOS smart phone units (2) it’s easy to understand owner and manufacturer concern for what’s arguably the most obvious but underappreciated component of a device – the screen.
“Scuffs, scratches and cracks are not the only screen-related concerns for device owners” says Gleicher President Doug Sanderson. “Phones and tablets need to maintain readability under adverse lighting conditions, and many users require privacy when in public. Screens used in public spaces or healthcare environments also have to stand up to harsh chemicals and hospital grade cleaners.”
3M’s optically clear, ultra-thin film offers greater than 93% transmission, keeping displays bright with no color distortion. But without degrading touch-screen performance, these films actually extend performance for resistive touch displays, up to 3x. And these newest 3M films are resistant to Clorox® germicidal wipes, IPA, window cleaner, motor oil, cola, coffee, permanent marker and other harsh cleaners used in hospitality/health care environments.
Incorporating 3M Protection, Light Control, and Display Enhancement films can control the distribution of light for a better user experience, and help protect displays against damage that can occur from the rigors of everyday use. Gleicher can customize those 3M films into solutions to help device manufactures assemble electronic display screens for any device.
