WGF™ – Improved Visibility And Longevity Of HUDs

If you have a mirrorless digital camera, WGF is probably inside. This film-based wire grid polarizer material is now finding its way into automotive head-up displays and driver monitoring systems, adding significantly to their heat durability and improving the overall visibility.

Recently, the number of HUD-equipped cars has been increasing. With the field of vision becoming wider, the HUDs heat durability can pose an issue. With WGF in the HUD’s optical path the impact of sunlight and other lights can be decreased significantly.

In addition to having excellent polarization properties in a wide wavelength range, this polarizing film is characterized by both easy workability (easy lamination, bending, profile cut, etc.) and excellent heat resistance stability.

Application fields for WGF include HUDs, driver monitoring systems (DMS), IR sensors, head-mounted displays (HMD) or digital camera viewfinders, etc.
