This surface treatment is the most matte variant in our line of Fine Mat™️ anti-glare surface treatments, ranging from Fine Mat™️ A1 to A5.
Fine Mat™️ is specifically developed to produce an exclusive-looking matte surface that dramatically reduces glare and still has excellent optical performance. This is because the cover glass retains its light transmission despite the anti-glare surface treatment, depending on which base material it is applied on.
The coating process creates a unique surface structure consisting of lens-shaped microparticles. This structure scatters light and significantly reduces glare. Despite its anti-glare properties, haze is still low, and light emitted from the display doesn’t get blurred, meaning it retains its image quality. Therefore, disturbing glare is significantly reduced with no loss in image quality from the underlying display.
Typically, these types of applications are used in conditions with a lot of direct light, such as sunlight outdoors or overhead light sources indoors. Therefore, displays used in these environments can benefit from anti-glare surface treatments to improve the readability of the display.
Standard Format: Fine Mat™’s standard format is 1000x740mm, but it can be customized according to your specific demands.
Pencil Hardness: This solution has a pencil hardness of 3-4H but is highly dependent on the pencil hardness of the base material it is applied to. Final hardness is measured 48 hours after removing the protective film.
Variations of Fine Mat: The gloss level of our Fine Mat™️ solutions can be adjusted. A1 is our Anti-Newton grade solution, whereas A3 is suitable for high-resolution displays. A5, which is the most matte solution, is what we usually recommend for digital signage applications. We also have Fine Mat™️ A2 and A4, which naturally fall in between these options. Therefore, we are able to customize the anti-glare solution to exactly match the requirements of your display.
We try to provide you as much information as possible, but it’s hard to provide all information in just one page.
There are a lot of exceptions depending on what features you need for your application. Because of these exceptions, we are more than happy to talk with you about our options.
We are – after all – experts when it comes to optical filter and cover glass solutions.
