NuShield films protect interactive displays at new Statue of Liberty Museum
LCD screen protection, germ and glare-elimination technology specialist NuShield, is helping protect the interactive displays and the public at the recently opened Statue of Liberty museum on Liberty Island, US.
The NuShield Triple A screen protector films placed on the large interactive displays in the Engagement Gallery eliminate glare on the screen, which is produced by the glass-enclosed construction of the building. This film also provides anti-microbial protection which is useful in killing germs since thousands of visitors will be touching the screens each day.
The anti-microbial and anti-fingerprint overlay film has been specifically designed to eliminate germs and protect the display surface in interactive environments. Its anti-microbial property has shown a reduction rate of 99% over a 24-hour period in laboratory tests using colon bacillus and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The Triple A continually inhibits the growth of germs on the surface and stands up to cleaning with harsh chemical solvents without degrading the anti-microbial protection and protects the device from damage.
The film uses a slightly tacky silicone rubber instead of a traditional pressure-sensitive adhesive, which means it is easily applied and removed and will not trap air. It can be cleaned with solvent, bleach, rubbing alcohol, dilute alkalis, esters and other disinfectants to eliminate germs on the screen, and it will not dilute its antimicrobial properties.
NuShield, based in Newtown, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1998 and manufactures screen protector and anti-glare films for over 15,000 electronic devices with LCD, LED or plasma displays up to 80-inch diagonal.
