Demand of touch panel technology has grown rapidly recently as it has become a communication interface between various types of digitalized handheld used in daily life such as mobile and smart phone.
Distinguished function, excellent design and production along with flexible support of customized solutions, are essential requirements for a touch panel product.
In response to customer's requests GUNZE has produced our very own touch panel technology using the synergy between high functional film and cover transcription technology.
GUNZE Touch Panel
Since the business started in 1985, GUNZE has not only maintained its presence in this competitive market but expanded its products actively.
Touch panel, the main product of GUNZE, is applied to applications in digital device market such as video camera, digital camera, ATM, POS device, PC, medical device, and more.
Demand for touch panel is growing even more with the appearance of smart phone and tablet devices. When we say "touch panel", there are various types of touch panels with different detection methods. There are capacitive, resistive, surface acoustic wave, optical, and electromagnetic types.
GUNZE manufactures newly-developed capacitive touch panels along with resistive touch panels which when applied has more applications than any other types of touch panel.
From GUNZE product line up, Projected Capacitive Touch Panel, having the characteristic of multi-input, and Resistive Anti-Low Reflection Touch Panel which uses High Functional Optical Film materials developed by our very own technology are introduced in detail on this website.
Enhanced mechanical and environmental durability, display function ensuring better LCD visual quality, are requirements for film that is used on the surface of touch panel.
By using our very own technology obtained from development of high functional film for touch panel, GUNZE develops and sells high functional film intended for not only touch panel but for other display devices.
Most popular touch panel with multi-input function. GUNZE support customers' requests with the latest sputtering technology of its own and by using in-house manufactured film materials.
Developed to improve visibility for outdoor applications. In order to prevent depression of contrast under sunlight and solve the issue of visual difficulty on the display, product with high functional film material of GUNZE is one of the solutions.
Resistive LCD Integrated Touch Panel
While there had been demands for touch panel including high transparency, thinness, and light weight, no touch panel has ever met all these requirements. However, cooperative development with LCD manufacturers, made it possible for GUNZE to offer customers LCD integrated touch panel which is thought to have the ultimate specification of all touch panels.
Resistive Tough Touch Panel
Lightweight, compact, and low power consumption model. These are the requirements today which shall be fulfilled without decreasing the performance of touch panel. GUNZE put focus on shock resistive performance and offers customers touch panel that is designed with polycarbonate and chemically strengthened glass materials instead of applying glass material.
Resistive Film-Glass (4-wire, 8-wire) Touch Panel
Although it seems that they all have the same appearance, various type of touch panels are used according to each application. This Film-Glass type is the most familiar touch panel and has been used widely for various applications.
Resistive Film-Glass (5-wire) Touch Panel
Belongs to film-glass type touch panel from material structure. Having different detection method, 5-wire touch panel has improved durability compared to other resistive touch panels.
Hard coat film which prevents visual depression caused by fingerprint. There are 2 types of film. One is "Lipophilic type" which has characteristic of easiness of wiping fingerprints off. Another is "Slipping type" which has characteristic of extremely smooth finger movement. Both types may be supplied with OCA as an option.
Has an excellent prevention against corrosion of ITO using acrylic acid free type adhesive and inhibition of "Cloudy" phenomenon under condition of high temperature and humidity. UV cut function which improves light resistance and prevents discoloration of product by UV is available as an option.
Inhibits reflection of light and improve the visibility. Designed by adjusting optical characteristic for capacitive touch panel inhibits reflection and also improves visibility. May be supplied with OCA as an option.
