Optical Bonding Saves Money — and Here’s Why

When it comes to optical bonding, Apollo takes the lead! If you’re familiar with our VacuBond® technology, then you’ll know that it will keep your product safe for a long period of time. However, if you’re not sure if optical bonding is right for you, then here are some reasons of how this technological breakthrough will save you some money (and display) over time:

Protects Your Display

Think of your custom touch screen display as a fragile piece of glass. Yes, it’s a bit sturdier than glass — but it can still be damaged when in the wrong hands. When you order a custom touch screen display from Apollo, not only will it live up to your expectations in terms of performance and quality, but optical bonding will further enhance those features. That’s right, when it comes to optical bonding, it will protect your display and will increase its longevity in the long-run. Optical bonding is the answer to keeping your display in tip-top shape for the years to come!

Reminiscent of Sunglasses

Sometimes when you have a custom touch screen display, it can be exposed to the elements — including the sun. Although it’s perfectly okay to have some sun exposure, it does have the potential to damage the screen (and presentation quality) on your device. When you invest in optical bonding through Apollo, the bonding will act as a pair of sunglasses for your unit! Nine out of ten times, business owners have to replace their touch screen displays quite frequently due sun exposure damage. When you have your display optically bonded through Apollo, it will increase the lifespan of your device — which will save you money, since you won’t have to replace for quite some time!

Enhances Display Quality

Fact: sometimes your custom display will be difficult to view no matter where you place it. When we secure your unit with VacuBond®, it will improve your readability — and will still remain energy-efficient. When you purchase a product from Apollo, we strive to give you the strongest, greenest product on the market. Even when you choose to have your device optically bonded, it will be even more durable than you could ever imagine! Before you decide to banish optical bonding from your thoughts, it might be wise to rethink about this beneficial breakthrough!

How to Save Energy This Holiday Season

Fact: the holiday season can take a toll on your wallet and energy bill. From festive holiday light displays to the technological gadgets you receive as gifts, your electric bill can soar through the roof — and will make your holiday memorable for the wrong reasons. If you’re looking to cut costs on your home or business this holiday season, then here are some helpful tips to follow:

Unplug the Unnecessary

Have an old lamp or radio plugged in that you haven’t used in ages? Well, it’s time to unplug it until you decide to use it again. Believe it or not, when you have a series of unnecessary items plugged in around your space, it will continue to raise your electric bills and waste energy. The best way to reduce your carbon footprint (and save some cash) is to do an inspection of the outlets in your space and see what can be unplugged. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at what can be removed and never plugged back in again! In the process, you’ll save a surplus of energy and will have more funds on hand to pay for some holiday gifts!

Use Heat Sparingly

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean that your space will be cold, too. In the wintertime, a series of homeowners and business owners will use an excessive amount of heat — which will raise heating (and some energy) bills tremendously. If you’re looking for a way to cut costs and keep your space warm, then it’s important to insulate any drafty windows and keep doors closed that lead to colder climates (i.e. your garage). In addition, to bring some heat into your space, keep the blinds open on your windows to let some sunlight in — which will heat your space within minutes! By doing these simple tricks, you’ll be saving money and energy in no time!

Time Your Lights

We get it: it’s tempting to leave your holiday lights on for a long period of time. If you’re looking to keep your holiday display illuminated, then it’s wise to invest in some inexpensive electric timers — which will still spread the glowing holiday cheer but will save your money and energy. In addition, when you have your holiday lights on a timer, you’ll never have to turn them on/off ever again — since it will all be on a timer! It’s truly a win-win situation when it comes to reducing your carbon footprint and saving energy!

How Apollo Saves the Environment

When it comes to saving the environment through green technological advancements, Apollo takes the lead. Usually when a standard technological company creates a product, not only is their creation absorbing an excess amount of energy — but it increases the carbon footprint of the user. Here at Apollo, we work in harmony with our environment (not against it), and here’s how we do it:

It Starts With Us

Before we create a product at Apollo, we always conduct extensive research on how we can effectively make the product less invasive to the environment. When looking for green efforts, we simply look around our office! That’s right: when our building was being constructed, we had every say in making our work environment as eco-friendly as possible! From using a geothermal heat pump, to keep our offices at a comfortable temperature, to finding energy efficient ways to reduce our carbon footprint, we’re completely dedicated to the green movement — and it shows in our products!

Keep It Green

As we mentioned earlier, our dedication to green starts from inspiration around our work environment — which positively impacts the way we manufacture our products! When it comes to our design for TFT controllers, we choose the best energy-efficient parts to incorporate into the finished product. This will not only reduce a carbon footprint effectively, but it will also save energy and cut energy bills in half, too. In addition to these key green features, our high-performance products also use mercury-free LED backlights and controller boards with switching function (to control display brightness).
