Optical Filters building and testing a stronger lighter cover glass to withstand repeated impact strikes. Using a combination of dry lamination adhesives and toughened glass layers a heated EMI shielded electronic display glass was engineered and proven to pass boot strike tests. We can complete drop ball testing of cover glass and bonded displays.
