What are the benefits of anti-glare (AG) coatings?

Reduce eye strain 

Anti-glare films can reduce the amount of light that enters the eyes. For people work on a computer for a long time, anti-glare films can help reduce eye strain and fatigue.

Improve visibility

Anti-glare films can reduce the reflection of ambient light, allowing you to enjoy beautiful, vivid images with improved visibility.

Easy to clean

Anti-glare films are easy to clean. Dirt can be wiped off with an ultra-fine fiber cleaning cloth containing a mild detergent without leaving scratches on the anti-glare films or LCD.

What are the disadvantages of anti-glare (AG) coatings?


Due to the additional process of anti-glare coating during the manufacturing, the price will be more expensive than regular displays. When purchasing, it is recommended that users consider whether they need to add anti-glare coatings based on their needs.

A slight decrease in color saturation

Anti-glare films provide vivid images;however, when an anti-glare film is coated on the surface of a substrate, it slightly impacts color saturation.Therefore, anti-glare films may be not suitable for people who require accurate color saturation and color reproducibility.

Introduction of three application examples of anti-glare film.

Digital products

Anti-glare films are used in smartphones, computer monitors, etc. Film materials used include PET, TAC, and PC. By applying anti-glare treatment to the surface of a computer monitor, it can reduce reflected light (glare), therefore it can help ease eye strain and fatigue while maintaining high image quality.

Automotive products

Anti-glare treatment is not only applied to digital products such as smartphones and computer monitors, but also used in automotive products such as car windshields, rearview mirrors, and head-up displays. For example, by applying anti-glare treatment to a car windshield, it can diffuse light and reduce reflected light (glare) to improve visibility.

Consumer electronics

Anti-glare treatment is also often being used in consumer devices such as glass lenses, camera lenses, and watch glass lenses to eliminate reflected light (glare).  Anti-glare treatment can be applied to almost any type of products to enhance visual experience.
