RadTech (http://www.radtech.com) has released ClearCal AG
(anti-glare) films for Apple’s new 21-inch and 27-inch iMacs. The
company says they greatly improve the viewability of glossy glass
displays when used in brightly lit or outdoor environments.
ClearCal films — which cost US$19.99 — combine a tempered 2-mil
matte finished, anti-reflection layer, permanently laminated to a
3-mil flexible transparent base. A blemish-healing siliconized
adhesive provides an optically-correct, yet easily removable bond
that conceals existing surface defects like abrasions and scratches,
according to RadTech. The siliconized adhesive is permanently bonded
to the base layer and will purportedly never leave any residue behind
if later removed.
ClearCal’s tempered, optically-correct surface resists scratches and
abrasions and cam be cleaned. In addition to glare reduction,
ClearCal provides a level of impact protection and minimizes the
appearance of oils or streaking if the display is touched.
