NuShield® Provides Overlay Film to Eliminate Glare and Protects
Against Germ Growth and LCD Screen Damage in Healthcare Environments

Newtown, Pa. – NuShield, Inc., is pleased to announce that its antiglare and antireflective films have been proven effective in eliminating glare and protecting the fragile LCD screen from damage on a variety of devices and monitors used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The films also filter out 99% of UVB light from reaching the screen or reflecting back to the eyes.

The NuShield DayVue antireflective film provides absolute clarity and is commonly used on monitors in operating suites and mammography monitors. It is the only screen protector on the market today that combines antireflective technology and superior scratch resistance. The film uses a low-tack silicone rubber-based adhesive to grip the screen surface. The superb glare canceling effect makes the LCD screen easy to see which is critical in these types of applications. The DayVue film is abrasion and chemical resistant and can be cleaned using disinfectants or other caustic liquids without degrading the antireflective properties or damage the LCD screen.

The NuShield Triple A antiglare, antimicrobial and antifingerprint film provides excellent screen visibility and protection against germ growth on electronic displays. The film uses a low-tack silicone rubber-based adhesive to grip the screen surface. It can be cleaned with disinfectants and solvents while the antimicrobial property remains to continually inhibit the growth of germs on the film surface. The antiglare feature diffuses glare from overhead lights and allows users to clearly read the display indoors. The antiglare property also prevents the transmission or reflection of 99% UVB ultra violet light from reaching the user’s eyes. Typical equipment using the antiglare film include monitoring displays, patient warming devices, lab equipment with LCD interfaces, laptop computers, non-critical LCD monitors, iPad or PC tablets and even telephone system displays with LCD screens.

NuShield films are available in sizes from 1 inch to 80 inch diagonal and are cut to fit the screen as required. NuShield currently supports over 6,000 electronic devices and constantly adds new sizes to this list. NuShield sells its films through OEMs, distributors, integrators and directly to end users.

NuShield Inc., based in Newtown, PA, has been the leading provider of screen protectors for LCD screens used in electronic devices since 1998 and is sold directly to consumers on its website at www.nushield.com or through distributors worldwide.
