LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M Electronics is exhibiting some
of the company’s industry-leading solutions for the consumer
electronics industry during the 2014 International CES, taking place
Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas. CES attendees are also invited to get a free 3M
Privacy Screen Protector applied to their iPhone® 4S or iPhone® 5
Tuesday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to noon (PST) while learning more
about the 3M technologies below at booth number 30459.
Screen privacy and protection products
The latest in screen privacy for mobile and desktop devices from 3M will
be showcased and in particular, a key solution to the emerging data
security risk of corporate information access on mobile devices. A
proprietary micro-louver technology from 3M lets the user see a clear
image, while showing a dark, blank screen to anyone viewing the display
from a side angle. 3M screen privacy and protection solutions are
available for tablets, smartphones, laptops, and monitors, as well as
for managing light in industrial and automotive applications. Other
booth displays include a larger-than-life 3M™ Privacy Screen Protector, and
the full line of 3M™ Privacy and Screen Protector products, plus the
Easy-On Privacy Filters for iPads®, with an interactive attachment
wall. Learn more at www.3mscreens.com.
Dot enhancement film
Devices such as smartphones, tablets and televisions can be made
lighter, brighter and more energy efficient with 3M™ Quantum Dot
Enhancement Film (QDEF). The new product from 3M allows up to 50 percent
more color than current levels in liquid crystal display (LCD) devices.
3M has teamed with Nanosys, Inc. to produce the 3M QDEF solution.
Presently, LCDs typically are limited to displaying 35 percent or less
of the visible color spectrum, resulting in a viewing experience that
can be vastly different than what a person sees in the real world. The
wider color gamut displays available through the new 3M film let
consumers enjoy more visceral, more immersive, and truer-to-life color.

Touch screen films
3M recently announced new films to help touch screen manufacturers and
integrators meet the growing demand for touch-enabled consumer
3M™ Patterned Metal Mesh Film enables new design possibilities, such
as curved and foldable touch screens, allowing OEMs and ODMs to create
the next generation of touch-enabled smartphones, notebooks and
3M™ Patterned Silver Nanowire Film combines the expertise of two
leading technology and manufacturing companies – 3M and Cambrios
Technologies Corporation – to provide the quality and volume that
touch screen manufacturers demand. The flexible film can conform to
angles and rounded surfaces, enabling next-generation curved and
rollable touch sensors.
3M™ ITO Film and 3M™ Advanced ITO Film offer excellent optical
transparency, high conductivity and product quality at competitive
3M plans to ramp up its global touch sensor film manufacturing capacity
to more than 600,000 square meters per month, in aggregate, to support

displays, enabling brighter, lighter, thinner, state-of-the-art devices.
3M Optically Clear Adhesives (OCAs), Liquid Optically Clear Adhesives
(LOCAs), Electronic Assembly Tapes, and Contrast Enhancement Films will
be featured as part of the 3M Electronics display. Based on core 3M
adhesive technology, 3M Optically
Clear Adhesives are precision-manufactured to virtually eliminate
common adhesive visual defects such as bubbling, which can distort the
display and diminish consumer satisfaction with their device.
3M OCA’s meet certain specific display bonding requirements with the
unique ability to customize the functionality, reactivity and
performance of the adhesive. 3M’s collaborative culture and
bench-to-bench approach, combined with electronics materials expertise,
breadth of product portfolio and alignment with key consumer electronics
industry leaders provides many innovative answers to demanding industry
