Environmental Durability Testing on Optical Coatings Glass for the Display Industry

Posted by The VisiMax Team on Jul 30, 2017 9:10:00 AM

Environmental durability testing is essential for optical coatings prone to degrading due to exposure to humidity, temperature changes, abrasion and exposure to chemicals. To ensure the durability of optical coatings, testing should be conducted to simulate maximum exposure to these variables. In the display industry, humidity and temperature are particularly relevant because the light from bulbs used in certain devices can create extremely high temperatures after prolonged usage. Any coatings used on optical components, regardless of the substrate, must withstand these conditions to avoid interfering with lens performance, and ultimately the performance of the entire product.
