Damaged Coverglass

If your industrial LCD display faces rough environmental conditions, chances are your lens has scratches or abrasions on the front. AGDisplays offers a variety of coverglass substrates for upgrade or replacement. With varying characteristics between substrates, we help you choose the best option based on your application need.

Replacing your LCD coverglass with AGDisplay provides you an opportunity to selectively enhance LCD protection, clarity and more, without breaking the budget. We use name brand materials with low MOQs and competitive pricing so we can help meet all your project goals. Optimize your coverglass repair with various optical coatings to increase protection, minimize reflection and refraction, and offer surface finishes ideal to your application. To install the coverglass, we use LCD bonding as our primary means of integration. LCD bonding is one of various adhesive options available on the market and it offers a wide range of benefits. Bonding can add protection from water/dirt, prevent coverglass shattering and increase optical clarity.

In the future, when your coverglass has been worn from normal wear & tear, you will only need a simple change of the top film for a clean and polished finish. With a restoration of the coverglass and top film coating, your coverglass will be restored to new.

coverglass options

Many times your LCD will come stock with a plastic cover lens that is not vandal or weatherproof. This poses a problem for long-term use because the design does not always hold up to rough environments, nor does it prevent abrasions or scratches.

Replacing a damaged coverglass or lens does not have to be routine maintenance; regular upgrade/replacement can be avoided. With the integration of a high quality, chemically strengthened substrate on your LCD, your display is protected from extreme weather and vandalization. Integration with LCD bonding and top film protection, your display can go a long way with durability and longevity.

Learn more information about each of our substrates on the AGDisplays website under Cover Glass Design and Integration.

coverglass DETAILS

standard soda lime glass
  • Soda lime is toughened through a sodium and potassium ion exchange. Often requested for thin display applications.
  • Thickness: min .30 mm to max 19 mm
hie cover glass
  • 6-8x stronger than float glass.
  • Typically used for electronic displays like tablets, mobile devices, touchscreens.
  • Improves impact resistance, flexibility strength, scratch resistance, resistance to temp changes.
heat tempering (ASTM C-1048-04)
  • Heat strengthening
  • Safety tempering (dices when broken)

AGC Dragontrail™

AGC Dragontrail™ is a chemically strengthened and tempered float-glass material that is 6x more durable than soda limeglass. With this strength, the glass can be produced in thinner material.

Vicker's hardness

  • Unstrengthened: 596 kg f/mm²
  • Strengthened: 673 kg f/mm²

THICkness availability

  • Standard: 0.8 to 1.1 mm
  • Special Request (MOQ req.): 0.5 to 5.0 mm
Corning® Gorilla® Glass

Corning® Gorilla® Glass is a thin sheet glass with a high degree of chemical strengthening. Benefits of Gorilla® Glass include high scratch resistance, high retained strength after use, and pristine surface quality.

Vicker's hardness

  • Unstrengthened: 534 kg f/mm²
  • Strengthened: 649 kg f/mm²

THICkness availability

  • Standard: 0.4 to 2.0 mm

Bonding Integration

When installing a new coverglass into an LCD, AGDisplays uses one of three different bonding methods: OCA bond, optical bond, or perimeter bond. Using a bonding adhesive on your LCD increases ruggedness and helps resist environmental vulnerabilities such as dust collection and moisture condensation.

Bonding methods are performed in one of AGDisplays’ Class 1000 clean rooms. A clean room is used across various industries where tiny contamination particles may be susceptible for intrusion in the manufacturing process. The controlled environment is specifically designed to keep levels of air pollutants very low, thus increasing precision and workmanship in our LCD repairs.

heat management

LCD technology is prevalent in all industry segments, including applications involving extreme heat or cold. If your LCD equipment is exposed to the elements, it can have a drastic impact on the performance of your LCD. While a display may be purchased with wide temperature range functionality, the unit may still be disrupted by extremely low or high temperatures.

AGDisplays provides transparent heated screens to combat low-performing LCDs in extreme cold weather. Our heated solution has had extensive testing and military qualifications for quality assurance.

  • De-mists/defrosts displays
  • Heat protection without losing optical clarity
  • Constant and repeatable wattage output
  • Fast warm up time
  • Design built for rugged optimization
  • Optional impact resistance, EMI, AG and contrast enhancement value adds.
