Design and consultation services: Slater Plastics offer an optical display filter design
and consultation service, to help you to design filters for your display
requirements. Displays are used in all applications from public information,
through to man machine interfaces. This means that the physical properties
of a filter will vary to suit it´s performance needs.
Consideration will often need to be given to several characteristics,
including, impact resistance, solvent and abrasion resistance, reflection
control, fire specifications, U.V. resistance or protection, RFI shielding,
ESD, anti - static and anti - mist.
Filters can be designed to incorporate several characteristics in one
part, and material selected from allyl carbonate or CR39 TM, acrylic, polycarbonate, polyester
If a filter is designed correctly it can reduce cost, improve the readability
of the display and allow your product to look at it´s best for a long
A display filter is the part of your equipment which is looked at for
the majority of it´s life. If badly designed it can have a detrimental
effect on the performance and sales of your product.
For all our customers who buy finished filters from us, the design time
is free of charge. We are happy to help with the design of filters even
if we are not going to be the manufacturer, but a consultation fee will
be discussed prior to any work commencing.
