Dr Pan: Welcome to DISPLAY Museum. I am Dr Pan, the curator of Museum.
Greg: Hello, Dr Pan. I am Greg. I came here to learn about 2-layer resistive touch screen.
Dr Pan: Hello, Greg. 2-layer structure is the most basic and widest used structure of all the resistive touch screens.
Dr Pan: The 2 layers are functional layers and the touch function can be achieved by them. Actually, there are 5 layers in 2-layer resistive touch panel. 2 functional layers are the main structure.
Dr Pan: From top to bottom, ITO bear layer1, ITO layer1, double-sided tape, ITO layer2 and ITO bear layer2.
Dr Pan: It is most widely used because it is relatively simple and cheap.
Dr Pan: But it can’t be silk-printed on the surface because it has no decorated layer and it can’t bear heavy pressure either because it has no supporting layer.
Greg: Dr Pan. I couldn’t help but wonder: is this a 2-layer resistive touch screen, although it has been silk printed on the surface?
Dr Pan: Of course, it is. It is a special sort of silk screen which is only printed on the view area of bottom glass.
Dr Pan: If you want to silk print on the non-view area, you have to add an extra layer.
Greg: Thank you, Dr Pan. Now I got it.
Dr Pan: Welcome to contact us if you have any question.
