Plastic Thin Film for Static and Dot-Matrix LCD's 860174

Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) using plastic thin film substrates were developed for automobiles. They are intended to be used as instruments and navigation displays on a dashboard.
The plastic film panels (PFPs) have several excellent characteristics - they are hard to crack, light weight, thin construction, and flexible. The combination of these characteristics permits great versatility of dashboard design.
Further, the PFP has a wider viewing angle and smaller parallax than glass panels. The plastic thin film combines a substrate with a polarizer for a twisted nematic (TN) LCD. It provides excellent heat resistance and reliability.
When remaining objects are solved, low-priced PFPs will hit the market place in near future.
