    OPTαGEL® is a tacky silicone-based product, that has excellent optical transparency over the visible wavelength region, excellent durability, and shock absorptivity. By laminating OPTαGEL® between either a touch panel or a cover glass and an LCD module, we can acheive excellent clarity.
    We will show sample applications and materials at our booth. If visitors make a reservation, they will be able to see the Vacuum Lamination Process for LCDs. Please contact Hiroaki Oba at for more information.


    αGEL® is shock absorbing and vibration damping material. An egg can be dropped from the 6th floor of a building (approximately 18m) on to a 2 cm thick sheet of αGEL® and land without cracking.
