Liquid Crystal Spacers

Drawing showing LCD spacers

Thank you for your interest in Liquid Crystal Technologies’ LCD spacer line. As can be seen in the above drawing, an LCD spacer is used to maintain the cell gap (the distance) between the front and rear pieces of glass used to make the display.

We offer a variety of products suitable for all liquid crystal display cell gap spacing requirements; they include spheres and rods. In general, rods are less expensive and used in less demanding applications.

Particle size is measured in micrometers (um) and varies greatly, as do prices. In general, the smaller the particle size the higher the cost. Silica is available from 1.0 to 9.0um, and plastic from 3.0 to 30.0um. Diameter sizes of spacers are available in increments of 0.1 micron. We require a minimum order size of 10.0 grams and incremental increases of 5.0 grams.

Liquid Crystal Technologies offers three types of sphere spacers: plastic and silica, and for some special applications, adhesive type.

The plastic type is composed of a divinylbenzene material that is designed to be compressed between two substrates. Click Here for information on Plastic Spacers
The silica type is a much harder material that is capable of providing tighter particle size distribution. Click Here for information on Silica Spacers
Conductive spacers are used in conductive gaskets for LCD's or for conductive epoxies, Chip on glass (COG) technology, vertical conduction of LCD panels, anisotropic conductive film / ink. Click Here for information on Conductive Spacers
