CLEAR BOND

Leading in Optical Bonding



What is Optical Bonding

Optical bonding is the process of filling up the airgap between the cover glass / touch panel and LCD cell / module to improve the visual and material features and with that the quality and value of the bonded device.

CLEAR-BOND uses silicone based liquid adhesive with the best properties available to date for this process.

 

 

What is CLEAR-BOND

The silicone-glue formula used is the faytech-X2-1688, also known as 'CLEAR-BOND'. This formula has been specifically created to provide the best optical bonding performance in the market.

 

This silicone-glue formula consists of two components, referred to in the documentations as component A and B.

The silicone liquid AB-glue is especially suitable for: Large size optical bonding



Optical bonding to be used in extreme environments:


Quality

CLEAR-BOND produces its glue in Tongling, China, under the highest quality standards. Every single batch is tested to meet the highest  quality  criteria, which  guarantee the flawless optical bonding mass production.

>100 ton/year

With more than 100 ton of yearly glue production, CLEAR-BOND is the leading supplier of glue for large format optical bonding.

Services & projects

CLEAR-BOND focuses on all bonding related services & projects and is a separate business unit and registered trademark of faytech, the first  company bringing a large format optical bonding process into mass production.

Besides the 'CLEAR-BOND' formula faytech-X2-1688. There are 2 other standardized formulas in the market, allowing the client to pick the best bonding glue to suit their needs:

 

faytech-XA-1688

faytech-XA-1688

Softer formula, allowing more flexibility
faytech-XA-1688

faytech-T50-1688

Specifically created for low temperature applications of below -50 °C

 

Additionally, faytech would be able to adapt the materials properties, such as hardness, viscosity, curing speed, etc., upon request.
This is done due to possessing their own silicone formulations and own in-house production.

Advantages of Optical Bonding

Reflections
reduced by about
65%

Brightness
increased by about
10%

No humidity or dust
is able to enter between the touch panel and LCD cell

Additional resistance
towards environmental forces onto the glass

 

CLEAR-BOND bonding facilities and service

There are two class 100 cleanrooms available in Shenzhen and Suining in order to perform the optical bonding services.

The production area consist of 5000+ sqm altogether and has a daily optical bonding output of >500 large formats.

CLEAR-BOND provides in-house optical bonding services of cover glass / touch panel to open cell / LCD-Modules of sizes all the way up to 105 inch!

CLEAR-BOND machinery

CLEAR-BOND completely developed own bonding machinery and unique processes for large format bonding. These processes offer an outstanding production yield of 97%.

A total of three different bonding processes are available, those for small, middle and large formats. Besides this, other bonding processes include those for display modules and cells.

 

Services for manufacturers

CLEAR-BOND provides training, machinery and glue to world leading (touch) device and whiteboard manufacturers in order to support their in-house optical bonding production.

Tailored solution

CLEAR-BOND provides a tailored solution of German dispensers & equipment, self-developed machineries and processes (patented) together with experienced project managers.

CLEAR-BOND glue production

CLEAR-BOND is produced within the clean room using high quality containers and equipment.

Samples of all production lots are stored and secured over long periods of time while being tested on a regular basis for stability and conformity (temperature, consistency, pull & shear test, haze, etc.).
