3 3 Company Organisation

4 4 Products Specialist glass products (Traditional Business) Optical Filters - to enhance the performance of information displays and provide anti-vandal protection RFI Shielded Filters - to minimise electro-magnetic interference to/from electronic displays. ITO and mesh options Laminates/Heater Panels/Visors - provision of safety related glass or polycarbonate laminates Touch Sensing products (Touchscreen Business) Unique Touchscreens - a range of laminated Touchscreens based on patented, Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT)

5 5 Touchscreen Product Range ZYTOUCH® ZYBRID® ZYPROFILM® ZYPOS®

6 6 Touchscreen Technologies All the above use some front face sensing medium which are prone to damage, vandalism, wear out mechanisms, environmental factors such as rain, sunlight and snow Resistive TouchscreenHas flexible conductive film mounted onto the front face of the sensor Infra Red TouchscreenIR emitters and Receiver mounted on to the front face of the sensor Surface Acoustic Wave Touchscreen Has transducers bonded to the front face of the sensor Capacitive TouchscreenHas a conductive ITO coating applied to the front face of the sensor

7 7 Basic Elements of the Projected Capacitive Touchscreen Product Front protective glass with optical and strength enhancement options Middle layer – laminated sensor grid of micro-fine wires 10 microns thick Rear protective PET film or glass option

8 8 ZYTOUCH® Two piece solution front and back with embedded sensor Sensing can be achieved through glass overlay thicknesses of 3mm to 12mm.

9 9 ZYBRID®, ZYPOS® Sensor bonded on to rear of single front sheet glass Single 3mm Glass Sensor ZYBRID® is a customisable product ZYPOS® is a range of standard sensor size products

10 10 ZYBRID® / ZYPOS® Capabilities Attributes in Common Surface durability – unlimited touch life Light transmission - ~92% No Drift issues, one time calibration Nominal touch activation Fully sealable solution ZYPOS - standardised solution Standard product construction and size range Un-toughened 3mm anti-glare glass substrate Controller always located off the sensor, via a flexi tail ZYBRID - customisable solution Various glass treatments – thermal/chemical, films Different glass thicknesses Control electronics can be either integrated with sensor for one fit item or located off glass. Size variability for bespoke solutions
