CNB Touch Sensors

For curved or 3D touch applications

High performing optics. Thermoformable. Bendable

CNB Touch Sensors are built on CNB Free Form or CNB Curve Films.

CNB Sensors can be bent to curved forms and formed to 3D shapes. It is possible to create transparent multitouch areas with extreme 3D shapes, such as grooved sliders and convex shaped control buttons. This enables complete design freedom and unique user experience to any surface – transparent 3D touch sensors can be combined to displays, plastic, glass, leather or textile giving almost unlimited possibilities for smart touch surfaces.

CNB Sensors are designed for standard industrial processes such as Film Insert Molding and optical bonding.  CNB Touch Sensors provide a true black, true white, and excellent contrast in touch displays. Read about display readability.
