The Future of Tactus Technology


The internet of things means that we’re interfacing with more things. Tactus technology is the future of our touch, and is leading polymer innovation with their 100+ patents pending and granted.

Our first product, TrueWrite film (designed for Lenovo) is only the beginning. We’re exploring opportunities with foldable and hybrid glass, automotive displays, smartphones, and surfaces that don’t even exist yet. We’re looking at environments poised for touch screen innovation like medical, industrial, and hazardous/chemical use cases. We hope be the layer that connects you to the future.

In the near term, we’re focused on solving two needs: Industrial Protection and Anti-Glare. Our Vice President of Engineering, Justin, was kind enough to highlight the advantages and potential applications of each below:

Industrial Protection Film

  • Removable protective film for touch screens for a variety of environments such as industrial controls, interactive kiosks, and medical environments
  • Shatter resistance (need to wordsmith a phrase to indicate good shatter resistance, but not as great as RTWF)
  • Superior chemical resistance — stands up to harsh chemicals such as … [consult chemical resistance data sheet], including bleach solutions which is a well-known, cost-effective antimicrobial for education and medical environments
  • Excellent optical properties

Anti-glare Film

  • Integrated film for touch screens used in environments that demand light management to enable excellent display performance, such as outdoor, strong overhead lighting, etc.
  • Pencil-like writing feel with stylus
  • Excellent optical properties

In addition to TrueWrite Film, Industrial Protection Film and Anti-Glare Film, the future of our interaction with surfaces has a lot of potential. This will include bendable displays, hybrid glass, new surface interfaces, advanced screen technology and more. You can learn more about on our technology page.
