Europtec Introduces EagleEtch® Tough, Acid Etched Anti-glare Aluminosilicate Glass

Written on January 6, 2012

The demand for “strong” aluminosilicate glass in a non-glossy alternative for ruggedized and portable displays inspired EuropTec USA Inc. to create its newest product, EagleEtch® Tough.

EagleEtch® Tough offers the best in anti-glare properties in a much stronger scratch resistant glass type. The ultra-strong anti-glare glass is ideal for devices such as cell phones, tablets, ruggedized displays, and touchscreens.

In the past designers were limited and had to choose to focus on either reducing glare with standard soda-lime glass or using a high glare aluminosilicate glass that was much more rugged. EagleEtch® Tough eliminates the tradeoffs by combining the aluminosilicate raw glass with EuropTec’s subtractive acid etching process, which creates a surface structure that disperses incident light, allowing the user to focus on the screen rather than the reflected images. This means that unlike coating or spray-on anti-glare solutions, EagleEtch® Tough is able to withstand all downstream processing and still retain the benefits of the aluminosilicate glass.

EagleEtch® Tough follows in the tradition of EagleEtch®, EagleEtch® XS and EagleEtch Plus™, which are top performing anti-glare glass products manufactured especially for the electronic display industry.

Special Etched Glass for Trackpad Applications

Written on January 3, 2012

The demand for a smooth feeling, low friction etched glass has lead Europtec to the creation of a special EagleEtch® XS Gloss 10 product version. The glass is specially designed for trackpad applications in ultrabooks, automobiles and special surfaces where touch feeling and sensation is critical.

EagleEtch® XS Gloss 10 is perfect for single and multi-touch solutions. The glass utilizes EuropTec’s subtractive acid etching process to create a durable structured surface that will not wear over time like acrylic or coated solutions and can survive all downstream processing.

EagleEtch® XS Gloss 10 follows in the tradition of EagleEtch® and EagleEtch Plus™, which are top performing anti-glare glass products manufactured especially for the electronic display industry.
