  1. Introduction To Sensor And Scanner Window Solutions

    With growing applications in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and security, and other digital imaging applications, the demand for optical and image sensors has also grown. Abrisa technologies offers sensor and scanning window solutions with a unique combination of performance coating design and volume glass fabrication.

  2. Guide To Glass

    Abrisa Technologies’ "Guide to Glass" provides information about the types of glass and their associated thermal, optical, chemical, mechanical, and electrical properties. This download also helps the reader better understand light and color; glare reduction; and glass strengthening methods using heat and chemicals.

  3. Semi-Transparent Mirrors For Visually Dynamic Hospitality Displays

    Hotel, restaurant, and retail owners are increasingly using aesthetically pleasing high-performance semi-transparent mirrors to create a visually dynamic display/mirror combination. These mirrors are constructed with a display unit hidden behind the glass that is not visible until powered on. 

  4. “Dynamic” Deadfront Interface Panel Glass

    A “dynamic” deadfront panel is used to create a sleek, uncluttered user interface appearance, drawing attention to the “hidden” light up indicators as required. The icons or other alpha-numeric indicators are visible when backlit, and when unlit, a monochromatic streamlined look is achieved. Abrisa Technologies offers complete solutions for deadfront panel glass technologies including screen printed graphics, chemical strengthening or heat tempering, anti-scratch coatings, and more.

  5. Custom Glass Fabrication Capabilities Technical Reference Document

    Abrisa Technologies provides precision custom machined optical components from prototype to high volume and OEM production. We can apply a variety of precision processes, individually or in combination, to any glass substrate. 90% of Glass Fabrication requirements are unique, consequently when you require a specific transmission, size, edge, polish, cleanliness standard or more for your product, turn to Abrisa Technologies to produce your fabricated glass components.

  6. Technical Note: Guide To Glass

    Guide to Glass provides information about the types of glass and their associated thermal, optical, chemical, mechanical, and electrical properties; Understanding light & color; glare reduction; and glass Strengthening methods using heat and chemicals.

  7. Benefits Of Heat Tempering vs. Heat Strengthening Of Glass

    There are two types of heat-treated glass. Heat-strengthened glass is approximately two times stronger than annealed or untreated glass, while the tempered glass will be four times stronger and less likely to experience breakage through thermal shock. This application note presents the benefits and characteristics of each type of heat-treated glass.

  8. First Surface Mirrors

    Conventional mirrors are constructed with a glass protective surface and a “silvering” second surface. In high-precision applications, these second surface mirrors have distinct disadvantages such as refracted or bent images, loss of energy, and a dim and distorted reflection.

  9. CleanVue PRO – Series Of Oleophobic And Hydrophobic Coatings For Tough Environments

    Abrisa Technologies' new CleanVue PRO series of anti-reflection coatings are designed to combine improved handling, cleaning, water shedding, and robust performance with anti-reflective properties. 

  10. Using Beam Splitters For Teleprompters

    A teleprompter system is made up of a one-way mirror, a screen, and a camera. The coated glass mirror is placed at an angle in order to reflect the image text from below. This allows an individual to look directly at the camera, rather than looking at notes or a script when addressing an audience. Abrisa Technologies provides non-distortion, high definition compatible optical grade beam splitter mirrors for these teleprompter applications.
