Polarizer Materials

Functional film used to protect polarizer and improve its performance
Polarizer materials are functional films used to protect and improve the quality of polarizers which are a key component of displays, and LG Chem’s products have the world’s best competitiveness with its distinct technologies.

Use of Product


  • Protective Film

    Protective films are used to prevent possible pollutions or damages that may occur during the processes of manufacturing or conveyance of polarizers. They also minimize generation of electrostatics when being removed from polarizers, protecting the polarizers from electrostatics.

  • Surface-processed Film

    Surface-processed films are used on the surface of polarizers to improve visibility through enhancing mechanical properties and adding the functions of preventing glare and reflection. As a polarizer is placed on the top of the surface of a display and affects the properties of light reflection and scattering, various sorts of surface processing are required to minimize them.

  • Acrylic Film

    Acrylic films have high transparency and durability as well as excellent weather resistance, and are used to protect the PVA layer which is responsible for key functions of a polarizer. They replace the existing TAC films and make it possible to manufacture thinner polarizers.

Glass Substrate

A key material for TFT-LCD
Glass Substrate is a thin glass board on which a thin circuit is deposited with precision. It is a key material for LCD. Ever since LG Chem ventured into the LCD market in 2009, it has remained fully committed to relentless research and development activities to produce glass substrates of high quality.

  • OCA

    OCA(Optically Clear Adhesive) is an optically transparent adhesive film used to combine the layers of a touch screen panel(TSP) or combine a cover-glass with a display.

  • ITO Film

    ITO(Indium Tin Oxide) film is core materials of touch panel that metalize Indium and Tin on PET film or Glass substrate by using Sputter.

Display Adhesive Materials

Solutions for adhesion of various display panels
The adhesive materials for displays have a double-sided taping function with high adhesive and optical characteristics. They are used to fix intervals between panels and alleviate impacts during various display manufacturing processes such as for mobile devices or TVs, to eventually achieve improved product performance and reliability.
