Waterproof touch screen using PCAP technology

PCAP foils laminate to the back of a pane of glass to convert it into a touch-sensitive surface. Mount the glass on an LCD display to create an engaging, reliable and robust interactive screen.

VisualPlanet is the leading manufacturer of PCAP technology and the originator of the touch foil format. The company’s TouchfoilTM product provides a number of benefits:

  • Waterproof: The touch screen operates reliably in heavy rain. PCAP foils are suitable for use on enclosures rated up to IP68, allowing you to safely wash the touch screen. VisualPlanet’s interactive foils are ideal for industrial, wash down and outdoor environments.
  • Works with gloves: PCAP touch screens work even through gloved hands. You can use PCAP screens in sterile locations, refrigerated environments and cold weather.
  • Custom options: Choose from the exact size for your needs, from 15 inches to over 85 inches. VisualPlanet foils work on curved glass. You can create engaging touch screen displays that generate additional revenue for your business.
  • Robust: VisualPlanet’s PCAP foils are rugged and durable. The foil is laminated to the back of the glass surface so is not damaged by frequent use. PCAP foils work through glass up to 10 millimetres thick. Thick glass protects your LCD screen from damage, allowing you to create vandal-proof touch screens for public places. Your waterproof touch screen has a long life with reduced downtime. You receive the maximum return on investment.
