DELO’s adhesives reportedly fill this gap and thus reduce the reflections by two thirds. This saves energy consumed by the backlight of the display.

“This award is a great honor for our entire team and confirms all of our research efforts,” said Wolf-Dietrich Herold, Ph.D., managing partner. “At the same time, it demonstrates the important role our high-tech adhesives play in modern products. Innovation means future. It is the key to our success. Therefore, we intend to invest even more than 15% of our sales revenues in future research and development.”
