DuPont Launches Optilon™ AR Film Coatings For LCD Displays

DuPont has commercialized a unique line of anti-reflective (AR) film coatings to significantly improve the image contrast and color quality of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs).

DuPont™ Optilon™ AR coating solutions are liquid formulations that enable the manufacture of single-layer, anti-reflective films for the front of LCD displays that greatly decrease surface reflections. In addition, they provide abrasion resistance and reduced cost due to a simpler manufacturing process. DuPont believes that Optilon™ AR coatings will play a key role in reaching the next level of high definition television (HDTV) picture quality to increase contrast and enable brighter and more vivid colors.

Last year, the company launched DuPont™ Optilon™ Advanced Composite Reflectors (ACRs), films designed to significantly improve the performance of LCDs by allowing better light utilization and increased display luminance, with lower overall manufacturing cost. Optilon™ ACR reflectors are located in the rear of the display backlight, and control the reflection of light to the front of the display with very high efficiency.

"The Optilon™ product line is a key advancement for the fast-growing USD 7 billion optical films industry," said Cindy Green, vice president and general manager, DuPont Fluoroproducts. "With DuPont™ Optilon™ AR coatings and Optilon™ Advanced Composite Reflectors, DuPont now offers solutions for better image quality, efficient power use and reduced cost for the front and back of LCD displays. These are key examples of DuPont innovation providing advanced materials for better displays that are easier to see, more durable and lower cost for consumers."

DuPont believes that an optimum combination of high-performance and cost-effectiveness is critical to push beyond current LCD technology barriers. A key requirement for realizing the next level of LCD performance is cost-effective glare reduction. Incumbent anti-reflective multilayer films are often costly to produce or have lower performance, but single-layer Optilon™ AR has the benefit of simplifying the process to lower costs while providing extremely low reflectivity and excellent abrasion resistance. It also allows for a smudge-resistant surface, neutral color, low haze and high light transmission.
