Display Coatings
Cockpit-based displays and backlit control buttons which convey critical information during battle scenarios can be obscured by direct sunlight. The application of sophisticated surface coatings can result in the elimination of life threatening situations. Since the company’s beginning, GENVAC has developed thin film coatings for unique display applications.  The company developed the low temperature indium-tin oxide (ITO) coatings for Kent State University’s Liquid Crystal Institute which lead to the development of the first plastic liquid crystal displays (LCDs).  GENVAC has developed numerous coating solutions for selective filtering of specific wavelengths of light for cockpit displays on aircraft which may require night vision goggles.  The company has also developed barrier coatings and filters for displays constructed from specially formulated plastics.
