Frequently asked questions and answers
 

Anti-reflective effect display protection

Why display protection? The high-quality display is very robust!

Anti-glare of displays

It's not just about the scratch protection factor, but also about the anti-reflective properties of reflective displays, also known as bright displays, glare displays or clear bright. In addition, modern displays are very expensive and a scratch, however small, can interfere with readability and appearance! There are of course quite good polishing pastes for displays that can polish out small scratches from plastic displays. However, scratches in glass displays cannot be polished out!

Display protection against mechanical damage

However, it is much better and more comfortable to equip your display with a professional display protection in advance. Subsequent feedback on Quality Of the Neoxum films was sent to us by an industrial customer. Our customer is a metal worker and has to deal with sharp metal objects every day. In the production halls he carries his Apple iphone 3GS with him. Due to carelessness, an approximately 200 g heavy sharp-edged metal piece from a few centimeters has fallen on its Apple iphone 3GS.
The use of the Neoxum as scratch protection film with 0.13 mm thickness prevented a display damage. The display film was very badly affected, but the Apple iphone 3GS display remained intact. An exchange of the protective film is possible at any time without residue. A new screen protection film protects the undamaged display of the smartphone.

Effective anti-reflective coating of displays

Problem description Mirroring on display

Reflections on the display are quite annoying and annoying. In addition to the reduction of the image contrast, important elements and information on the display are partially completely hidden. A further negative effect is the reduction of the visually recognisable colour dynamics due to the bright surroundings or the use of peak lights, which produce a strong reflection on the device display.
Another problem is the different focusing of the human eye on reflections. These are usually due to point light sources at a distance of a few metres, such as lamps or windows through which daylight penetrates. Our human vision is thus very irritated: Should the eye now focus on the mostly very bright reflection or on the screen content? A comparison of the brightness of a display, e.g. a good mobile phone display of an iPhone or Samsung smartphone with 600 -1000 Lux with a modern office ceiling LED lamp with 30 Watt at 2500 Lumen, a beam angle of 35° and a distance to the viewer or mobile phone display of 2.5 meters, results in the following result: The ceiling LED still has at this distance under the above mentioned assumptions in about 1300 Lux. According to this, the point light source is as bright as the light source in the display by a factor of 1.3x to 2x, depending on the situation and the setting of the screen brightness of the smartphone. We save a comparison to the sun at this point: Everyone knows the enormous luminosity of our fixed star, which makes it almost impossible to read information on a reflective outdoor display.

anti-reflection coating with λ/4-layer foils

Some manufacturers reduce the reflection on the reflecting display with the help of an anti-reflective layer applied ex works or a subsequently applied λ/4 layer of film. These anti-reflective coatings are very often referred to as λ/4 coatings because the anti-glare effect is based on the effect of destructive interference. Unfortunately, this type of anti-reflection coating is also unpleasantly noticeable by a purple-blue color cast, since the relatively short-wave green area around 550 nm is filtered out and the addition of the remaining color components causes this blue cast. A disadvantage of this λ/4 layer is also the limited effect of spotlights and their point reflection.

 

antireflection coating by matt antireflection coating

With older displays, such as older Apple iMacs, it was possible to reduce the reflection very well by using a matt screen protector. Unfortunately, the sharpness of the screen content was also lost, as the distance between the screen glass and the actual LCD display was relatively large. Fortunately, the distance between the cover glass or display and the actual LCD, LED or OLED screen is very small in most display models (or no longer available at all due to new technologies), so that a very effective anti-reflection coating can be achieved by means of matt scattering of the reflection. In the following example, we equipped a 2011 Samsung UE55D8000 LCD TV with Neoxum anti-reflective film on the right half of the screen. One can see very clearly that objects in the living room cause sharply defined reflections due to the daylight that penetrates through window panes.

Neoxum anti-glare film on television reduces reflections

Only the right half of the LCD screen of the LCD TV Samsung UE55D8000 television has been equipped with a Neoxum anti-reflective film for demonstration purposes.

Objects such as the green glass vessel are sharply outlined and mirrored on the screen. The environment of the living room can also be perceived very well as a reflection. Exactly from top to bottom through the nose of the actress runs the border between the left reflecting display half and the right screen half with the applied anti-reflective Neoxum display foil. If one compares the two eyes of the woman, it quickly becomes clear that the left eye is almost completely covered by a reflection of a mural. The contrast is greatly reduced. You can only guess the right eye. Television in daylight with many reflections on the TV screen is almost impossible. Only after the application of the special anti-reflective film are the screen reflections effectively scattered: the right eye of the actress can be clearly seen in the picture and is clearly visible. Point reflections are strongly scattered by the special matt display foil, so that incident light at the interface air to glass of the TV screen is no longer reflected according to the law entrance angle = exit angle, but is extremely strongly scattered. This means that surfaces, but also punctual light sources, are no longer perceived as disturbingly reflective. Television is also possible in daylight. With the help of such an anti-reflection coating, reflections can be reduced by up to 85%..

 

Anti-reflective film from Neoxum

The AGS (anti-glare protective film) antireflective display film antireflects and protects sensitive displays at the same time. A special surface treatment very well reduces annoying reflections and reflections on the display, so that the display can be read again even outdoors. The following video illustrates the anti-glare effect of the Neoxum display foil with a very strong point light source, an LED lamp.

The anti-reflective film scatters incident artificial light or daylight (even direct sunlight!) on the surface so that the display can be read. The anti-reflective display foil does not falsify the display colours! An important point for graphic artists, photo artists or users in the field of cartography.Notebook Antiblend Film from Neoxum

OnScreen Hybrid anti-reflective glass

As a highlight, we can also offer our high-tech material hybrid glass in an anti-reflective version. Thus, we achieve a further increase in the extreme robustness The new hybrid glass combines the advantages of a high-performance film with the advantages of glass: very flexible and yet a glass-hard surface.

Color fastness and transparency

What about the colour brilliance of the anti-reflective protective films, because they look a little milky?

A short excursion on the subject of colour, hue and colour perception

The colour perception of Man is marked by 1. The Hue, 2. The brightness and 3. The color saturation. These three parameters describe the fundamental subjective color perceptions of the human being. The brilliance of a color is thus a subjectively perceived phenomenon and describes the apparent intensity of color perception ("How saturated colors appear"). Since the colour brilliance is more subjectively felt, the AGS display films were subjected to an objective measurement, the measurement of the transmission ("How much light is swallowed by the protective film"). With the help of UV-vis spectroscopy measurements were carried out in the visible spectral range of 400-850 nm. The results are shown in the following graphic:

Light Transmittance-Display film

The light transmittance in the important visible range is average at a greater 93%. This means that in spite of the antireflective film the underlying display loses only a maximum of 7% of the brightness – and this at 1. Preserved color fidelity and 2. Greatly reduced reflections on the display. If it was previously impossible to read something on the display in the sunlight (because it is strongly mirrored), this is possible with the Antireflektionsfolie of Neoxum again.

Colorfastness

We also commissioned several Photoshopkünstler and photographers to test the Neoxum anti-reflective protective films on their monitors as well as on a camera display.
The Apple community has confirmed that there is a minimal color variance, but it can be easily rebalanced by fine-tuning (no comparison with real color distortions that occur with competitors – Violettstich). The well-known Photographer and Photoshop artist Xomi (aka Michael Baierl (Own Video2Brain DVD) recommends Neoxum AGS (anti-glare) slides in its workshops to minimize the reflections of Apple's device displays.

In addition, thousands of Neoxum Antireflektionsfolie for large-format Apple monitors, such as Apple imac 21.5 inch and Apple Cinema 27 inches, are used by one of Europe's largest publishers to reduce disturbing light reflections.

Comparison of antireflective and crystal clear display film

The direct comparison between the anti-reflective film and the crystal clear version of Neoxum protective films shows that the anti-glare coating efficiently reduces reflections. The crystal clear film without the special anti-reflective coating is clear and transparent. Both types of film are made of the same extreme Resistant material.

How many protective films are in a packaging unit?

3-Pack? 5 pack? 24er Pack? How many slides are in a box?

Due to the high Quality of protective films If only one slide per display is delivered in the retail packaging, i.e. if the device has two displays, then two precisely-fitting films of very high quality are also supplied. The Illustrated instructions for mounting the slides on the display As well as a damp and dry cleaning cloth for cleaning the display before the start of the installation are also included.

Neoxum relies on recyclable cardboard and paper packaging that optimally protects the screen protection films during transport. We attach great importance to Sustainability And for this reason we are of course also connected to the dual system, i.e. we have already paid for the recycling of the packaging of the professional protective films and the protective films themselves. The packaging can therefore be transferred to the paper circuit via general paper and cardboard collection points. After years of use, even the best films will eventually wear out. Even then you can safely carry the foils to plastic recycling. We do not consciously renounce annoying, environmentally damaging and difficult-to-open Kunststoffumverpackungen.

If you wish to have your own packaging in your CI as an industrial customer or manufacturer of devices, panels or displays, you are correct with us as a manufacturer with full service.

Advantage of high-quality protective films – anti-reflex or clear

In addition to the efficient anti-reflective film of Neoxum, the display is also protected against mechanical, physical and chemical influences. A crystal-clear Neoxum protective film without anti-glare coating is equally robust and durable but completely clear and transparent.

Work with hand laptop and tablet outdoors

Especially when the owner may consider reselling the equipment after a certain period of time or the end of the lease is approaching, the value of the equipment is preserved. A device with scratches in the display can be bought reluctantly or only at a reduced price. In the case of a leasing contract, sometimes high deductions and additional payments have to be made if the display or touch screen shows scratches or even cracks. The films are made of a special material, which is very resistant and completely non-toxic. Plastic beverage bottles consist of the same basic material as Neoxum protective film (PET - polyethylene terephthalate).

Diluted acids, diluted alkalines, fats, oils, solvents and detergents cannot harm the Neoxum screen protection films. * Detailed test reports and tests on Neoxum films can be found in the section Download. Also in the download area you will find the  Datasheet in English, as well as the Technical Data Sheet in German.

Adhesion/Adhesive Strength Neoxum Display protection

Adhesion forces on surfaces

Neoxum display protection films and our OnScreen ® hybrid glass adhere purely via physical adhesion, i.e. the films adhere to the display via a kind of "suction foot in the nanometer range", without using any adhesives. When Neoxum Display Protector films or hybrid glass are removed from the display, no residue remains on the display.

Physical chemical forces

More specifically, several physico-chemical forces play a role. Adhesion is a fundamental phenomenon in the molecular area caused by polar interactions at interfaces, in our case the interface surface of the display <–> Silicone adhesive layer of the Neoxum display film, or OnScreen ® hybrid glass, so-called Van-der-Waals bonds between molecules of the display surface and molecules of the adhesive layer (the very thin silicone adhesive layer). The decisive factor in adhesion is the spatial proximity of the two surfaces. The silicone adhesion layer of Neoxum display protection, or surface protection, is designed in such a way that our display films, as well as our hybrid glass, adhere very well to many smooth materials such as plastics, metals and glass. The adhesion film and the hybrid glass can be removed from all material types without leaving any residue.

Why is that

Commercially available simple adhesive films usually have an adhesive layer of acrylate adhesive or modified acrylate. This adhesive layer practises much stronger physical bonds, which are much stronger than the adhesive forces of the adhesive films. This type of acrylate adhesive film can usually NOT be removed after a few weeks or months of use without leaving any residue on the display.

High quality display protection in industrial quality

We are not talking about slides that are sold on various platforms for €2.95 for 12 pieces. The question is, why do you need 12 slides as a user? This can only mean that the quality of the cheap film is in an area of better cling film and has nothing to do with industrial and professional protection or an effective Antireflektionswirkung.

Durability of Neoxum screen protection films

With normal usage intensity and stress, the film lasts a lifetime of the appliance. Should the film still get scratched in case of heavy loads (only the foil-not the device display!), the protective film can be very easily renewed. The enormous durability and durability, combined with the very high chemical resistance of the special plastic, ensure perfect protection and legibility of the display. Neoxum display protection is extremely robust and protects displays of electronic devices from mechanical damage.

Do I have to crop the Neoxum screen protector myself?

The films do not have to be cut themselves! Both the anti-reflective AGS and the crystal-clear AS protective film are cut to exact size using state-of-the-art laser cutting systems. This includes recesses for any camera lenses, microphones or loudspeakers as well as special corner radii or display shapes and dimensions. We cut your display protection films and hybrid glass to an accuracy of 0.1 mm, taking into account optimum assembly and all necessary edges, radii and recesses. Of course, we also manufacture special sizes up to 1200 mm x 600 mm (for example as privacy film or splinter protection film).

cut-outs for camera, microphone, sensors, outer contour

A modern touch display device with its sensor or microphone, but also a special sensor can represent much more than just an image. All these recesses as well as the exact outer contour of the device display are taken into account in Neoxum products.
