    Direct light sources or bright ambient light generate reflections that can greatly reduce the readability of displays. As the test display (photo) shows, these reflections can be almost completely eliminated by bonding the displays with a silicone gel that WACKER custom developed for VIA optronics, a company that enhances displays in a special bonding technique known as optical bonding. The left, unmodified half has a relatively low contrast ratio and reflects strongly. The right side was optically bonded with VIA bond. Thanks to the better contrast and the almost total absence of reflections, the display is much easier to read. (Photo courtesy of VIA optronics GmbH)
