Acal BFi offers light-directing display films from Luminit

July 14, 2014
Acal BFi, European leader in advanced technology solutions, are pleased to introduce state-of-the-art, light directing and brightness enhancing films from Luminit to the European photonics, lighting and display markets.

The new products from Luminit include Directional Turning Film (DTF) and Round Tip Display Film (RTD). The DTF transforms an image from a flat panel display to a display with an optimum viewing angle by using a linear asymmetrical prismatic structure to angle the image 20 degrees in any direction. Easily incorporated within, under or on top of the LCD display the DTF can be used in many applications, including recessed can lights to allow for more wall washing, pathway/stair lighting to reduce glare and increase ground illumination, and swimming pool lighting to increase illumination of the bottom.

The RTD Film can increase display brightness by 30-40% through refracting and reflecting previously wasted light towards the viewer. The film's innovative round-tips are more durable than the commonly used sharp tip prisms, which can break off and cause contamination in the display. In addition, this round-tip pattern is embossed on a 10 mil polycarbonate substrate that can withstand higher temperatures than polyester films.

Acal BFi are the pan-European partner for Luminit and have over 40-years of experience of providing products and services for the photonics industry. The company have the technical expertise to recommend equipment for breakthrough experiments, help integrators to optimise their system performance and manufacturing, and assist end users to gain rapid access to the data or performance they require.
