Touch International (TI) has recently acquired the specialized industrial LCD enhancement assets from the DuPont Display Enhancements, a subsidiary of DuPont. TI has also signed a licensing agreement with DuPont for DuPont Vertak Optical bonding technology.
Under this agreement, DuPont Display Enhancements will supply adhesive material and transfer its DuPont Vertak bonding technology to Touch International. This bonding technology enhances display performance and the outdoor readability and durability of displays to a greater extent.
“This acquisition continues our strategy to integrate technology into more customer applications by combining TI’s leading touch screen and EMI filter products with DuPont’s optical bonding solutions,” said Michael Woolstrum, CEO and co-founder, Touch International.
“Customers primarily in the military, aerospace, medical and industrial market segments will benefit by the convergence of these two entities creating a compelling value proposition for growing LCD-Touch applications,” added Woolstrum.
DuPont has been in the industry since 2002, creating sustainable solutions through a wide array of products and solutions for markets that include agriculture, nutrition, electronics, communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation, and apparel.
To further enhance the performance of the touchscreen and to improve optics and LCD readability, TI has signed this licensing agreement with DuPont to enable the company to offer customers with integrated touch screen, EMI filter and optically bonded display manufacturing and maintain operations at the Torrance site, operating as Touch International Display Enhancements Corporation.
Operating with eight factories across the world, Touch International is an original equipment manufacturer of resistive and capacitive touchscreens.
